    Very enjoyable, I came away feeling confident to use my camera and can identify what went wrong when a photograph doesn’t turn out quite the way I hoped, which is a really important part of learning for me. Jeni was a great tutor, explained things very clearly and made it fun. I would highly recommend this course.

  11. 5 out of 5

    Very clear information delivered in a fun remembrance and accessible way. Enough info to put into practice with an outing, studio work, and more photography indoors and outdoors then a taster on light room. A perfect introduction thorough enough as a stand alone but probably like me you will want to come back for more.
