A bit like an avalanche coming to rest. The silence is deafening.
But there’s more, after the tumultuous final weeks of picbod2012 we’re delighted to announce we’ll be pulling all of the content (including your stuff, our stuff, the contributors’ stuff) into one beautiful narrative for your download delectation.
We’ll be in touch in the near future with this, in the meantime it only remains to say a massive thank you for making the class such a success for all the contributors and instructors and making the live experience so rich for our students.
If you’d like an official #picbod badge to boast of your tribal belonging then email us your address and we’ll post one out.

Workshop técnico: trabalhar intimamente com luz natural.
Nós vimos como trabalhar o enquadramento sem o sujeito nele, de uma maneira que pudéssemos pré-visualizar a fotografia, tendo muita atenção nas dinâmicas do ambiente. Levamos em consideração como a imagem e a percepção da imagem muda de acordo em como nos movemos em relação ao sujeito.
Uma vez enquadrado, movemos o sujeito para dentro do enquadramento e trabalhando com um tripé, começamos a fotografar permitindo que houvesse um grande espaço ao redor dele (e também um espaço físico entre o fotógrafo e o sujeito). A partir do momento que entendemos as dinâmicas da luz e foi estabelecido um ponto de partida para o nosso enquadramento, nos concentramos em explorar a noção de um encontro íntimo.

Hello and welcome to picbod 2012 (the Olympic picbod). We have an exciting ten weeks of photographic activities ahead of us designed to inspire, challenge and stimulate in equal measure with highlight contributions from Steve Pyke and Grant Scott of HungryEye Magazine amongst others.
For our undergraduate attendees here at Coventry University this class falls in term two of their second year and is the first time that they’re classroom experience is opened out to the online community, this in itself will be challenging to some and so we trust our community will continue to be an awesomely supportive one for all.
Many who’ve signed up remotely are already practising photographers, some are hobbyists, others just dropping by out of curiosity, whichever you are we hope you’ll feel confident engaging in the broader picbod community and if there’s some way we can make that easier or the experience better then please let us know.
Okay, lets go to work.
