It was an excellent session and useful to have some creative thinking time about how we might use images and the image bank itself (Flickr and blip) to support exploring topics and themes.

I found both presenters very engaging and I am sure we were all impressed at their dogged determination to work through the challenge of taking one picture every day come what may!

My colleagues and I in the library are thinking about  how we might use the approach to help with staff development and even possibly a recruitment task!

I might even sign up for the challenge myself after feeling inspired by the session.

Thanks!

I thought this was one of the best coffee mornings I’ve attended. The content was really interesting and thought-provoking. 

Thanks.

A really interesting insight to the 365 photo process and some of the issues it can raise.
It was also inspiring to get out with the camera and have started my attempt at one-a-day images.
Both speakers gave a balanced view the project and also great to see there pictures.
Worth attending
