    I decided to take the course to get some more understanding of how better to improve my photography. My last camera was a Practica SLR ( 35mm ) and I decided to get back into photography just over a year ago by buying a DSLR camera. After a short conversation with the instructor ( Jerry ) knew what my needs were and took me from taking my photographs from using Auto to using Manual settings. He was very understanding and informative on how to use the settings on my Canon 250D camera. I feel the course gave me a better understanding on how I could improve my photography skills further using better composition techniques and further understanding of Manual setting on my camera . I would definitely recommend this course for anyone wishing to understand and improve their photography further.

    Burton Dasset is a great location for sunrises and sunsets with its hills sitting above all of the local landscape, so a favourite place for early morning and evening walks with my dog and camera. It was actually due to rain on the day I took the image, but it didn't come so we hopped into the car and took a chance. The sky was total cloud when I arrived but as soon as the sun broke beneath them they all just lit up, along with light hitting across the various hills and bumps in the foreground.
