Royal Photographic Society
The Royal Photographic Society was formed as The Photographic Society in 1853 with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as patrons. It was granted the use of the title 'Royal' by decree in 1894 and was presented the Royal Charter in 2004. The Society's mission today, as in 1853, is 'to promote the Art and Science of Photography'. Membership is open to everyone with a real interest in photography, including newcomers to photography, teachers, historians and scientists, as well as dedicated amateurs and full-time professionals. The Society runs the highly acclaimed Octagon Galleries in the heart of historic Bath, England which house four changing exhibitions of photography and a museum of the history of photography drawn from the Society's internationally important Collection.
I used this product in a woodblock printing class. I thought it was fine. Some of the women in the class bemoaned the plastic handle (not wood) but it is very convenient that the spare nibs can be kept inside the handle, and does it really matter if it is plastic? It was sometimes slow-going across the grain of the wood (white pine), but I don't know if that can be helped. The only problem I had was that the motion of carving would sometimes unscrew the cap in the handle, and I'd have to retighten it before it came off and the spare nibs fell out.
This is my first foray into pastels, and this product has exceeded my expectations. It was delivered promptly and in good condition. I'm very happy with the colors included but it has left me wanting even more colors!
If you're a lefty like I am, then I don't have to explain why I'm obsessed with this/ It is the only pen I EVER use. It never smears!! No matter how fast I write. I have to sign off on checks all day long, and I feel 100% confident this pen is permanent, fancy and expressive.
Only pen I use.
