Course Overview

Want to learn how to get more out of your camera and take some amazing images of Britains Birds at the same time?

The aim of this course is to get members away from their automatic settings and to begin using their camera in manual modes, enabling creative photography to take place.

If you struggle with the manual modes don't worry, instructor John will be on hand to guide you!

Please note this course is off-site, you will need transport in order to reach the wood. If you have any queries please contact us directly and we'll be glad to help!
