Guy had a wealth of knowledge and explained the basics of having the camera in manual mode. We tried many different settings, focusing on how to change the image. It was fun experimenting with random objects and making them look interesting. I have gone away from this lesson with new knowledge and now just need to practice. Thank you so much!

This was a great session for beginners. A small group enabled individual assistance. Guy detailed technical information in easy to understand manner and the practical hands on nature meant we were able to see the results of using specific techniques. Really enjoyable. Tip: Make sure you take a spare battery! 😊
