"I was amazed at how much I learnt in one day. I have always enjoyed taking photos but never ventured to the manual settings as I found it too hard to understand. The tutor explained all the different components in a way that is easy to put into practice and you see instant results.
I have now found a new amazing world of photography and am enjoying practicing, I will never go back to ‘Auto’ again."
