  1. I live in the centre or Edinburgh and walk and cycle around many of the streets that no doubt will be used in the workshop. I use X series cameras but am really not into street photography. I like to work with people’s consent and have been doing a series of icebreaker projects (e.g. http://www.hyam.net/blog/archives/2830). I have an idea where I am headed photographically.

    So the workshop isn’t up my street metaphorically (even though it might be physically up my street) but I’m wondering if there is a plan for a social after the workshop. If so I might be able to tag a long for a little while.

    If not – enjoy your time in Edinburgh!
