Three Things; Treasury – Celebratory Coastal Collecting Bag Challenge

Coast Magazine features Shore Cottage Studio

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s treasury is a flashback to our old Collecting Bag Challenge in celebration of our appearance in the May issue of Coast Magazine. We were looking forward to reding the review of our Photographing Natural Texture and Detail course on Monday’s blog and today our copy hit the doorstep.

Coast magazine on Thurstaston Shore

Here are the first two pages of our four page review taken outside the front door of Shore Cottage looking over to North Wales at Thurstaston shore. We couldn’t be more delighted with how the article has turned out.

The second double page spread, this time inside our studio by the comfy sofas. Our favourite quote must be; “…I feel a teeny bit moved, perhaps because the images capture a moment when I began to look at things in a new way.”

Magic the Horse

To celebrate a wonderful review we are bringing back the Collecting Bag Challenge for this week. Magic the Horse has his collecting bag ready and the theme is ‘coast’. We will be collecting coastal inspired objects or images and posting them here on the blog on Sunday. If you would like to join in you can post your coastal finds on our Facebook wall, send them on Twitter or email them to us

We will post any pictures you send, here, on the blog for all to enjoy.

If you read the Coast Magazine article, do let us know what you think.
