"A great course that made complex technical information easier to understand, discussed the elements involved in composing a good photograph and was intimate enough to enable Colin to address the individual interests of each participant using their own camera. I feel more confident and competent taking photographs with my camera that look decent." Michael

"I have been to many photo workshops. But your explanations and examples were the best that I have seen, so thank you." Shirlee

Whether you are just getting started with your digital camera, or want to get out of Auto Mode, this two-hour workshop will explain just what aperture, shutter speed and ISO is, and how you can start to create more than just snap shots with your expensive piece of kit. Start creating masterpieces.
