    if you're anywhere near clay hill then that's always a great place to go, it's near longleat as well so you can do a whole day out there...

    Compton Chamberlayne, Donhead St. Andrew, Shaftsbury, Salisbury ... any help ?

    Sometimes wandering to a nearby village is enlightening !

    Pick any nearby town that you haven't visited in a while.

    Pretend you're on assignment to provide a photo spread for a magazine running an article on the town.

    Remember that the two key elements are light and composition.

    That should get you started.

    One of the few photo workshop instructors that actually taught me anything, suggested the followingÂ…

    Place yourself somewhere within your favorite place in your own backyard and shoot. Shoot while standing, shoot from the prone positionÂ… Shoot Shoot Shoot!

    The point this instructor made was that exotic locations do not always make for excellent photographs. Your next best photograph will likely be made in the most unlikely place!

    Hi HappySnap

    Can you get over to Avebury, West Kennet Long Barrow, Dragon Hill near Swindon..or over to Glastonury Tor and Cheddar Gorge in Somerset ? There's loads of beauty and things in Wiltshire. Happy shooting!

    Can you give me the exact date of that "lovely day" I've travelled on assignments to the U.K. many times trying to find that elusive day to no avail. We have a problem here finding a "rotton day" Philip, Sydney, Australia.

    where is it in the UK you live? can you drive? just investigate. cities are surprisingly great places to take photos.

    luckily for me i live in the 'burbs of edinburgh which has so many great areas it is untrue. 1 mile one way is the CBD, a few hundred metres the other there are forests etc.

    Photos are everywhere.

    If you capture it right, a messy, unorganized desk can be a brilliant piece of work.

    Its all there, you need to find it.

    What???

    This will open your eyes. It's an assignment commonly given to photo students fresh to photography.

    Lock yourself in your bathroom with a roll of film or an empty memory card. Shoot until you can't any more. Get creative. Look at things from angles that you wouldn't normally.

    At the end, many students wish they had more than one roll of film! Try it!
