Amanda Root – Cornwall


Amanda Root - Cornwall, St Ives workshop, Feb 2020
I saw you contentedly sitting and watching the world go by, even when the gales were blowing and the rain drenching us, I saw you enjoying little moments in nature.
What is so wonderful about you is that you quietly go about things, yet in the most focused manner. You know your mind steadfastly and you have an eye for art and the natural world that is unaffected by outside influences. This has led to your creating a strong set of observations of the natural environment that speaks to you. When we were all looking one way you were looking down and finding the most interesting details.
And all this whilst picking up a camera and using complicated settings for the very first time. You are an inspiration to those who want to start out in photography and come along to workshops without any experience. I am intrigued to watch you develop as I have a feeling you will go from strength to strength in a wonderfully artistic way.
