Take control of your photography and get your pictures to look the way you saw / imagined them!

On this 5 hour workshop Ian will use plain language and plenty of practical help to ‘Get Off Auto’

  • You will learn how to use your camera’s controls to select Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO manually to get the correct exposure every time.
  • You will learn about ‘Depth of Field’ and how to use your camera’s focussing system to get clear sharp images of landscapes and static subjects.
    (focussing on moving subjects is covered on part 2)
  • We will also cover some basic rules of composition for landscape, still life and portrait photographs.

    One of my favourite places in the world . I may have seen a few things in my time , spectacular buildings, coral reef and such but the lakes of England have a unique light and feel. I would happily spend my days here.

    Great day out in the Ebikes. Nice trails for everyone to enjoy. The hire bikes some of our group had were well maintained and the staff were lovely. Happy to help and nothing was no problem 😁

    £0.50 per 15 minutes to park!!! £16.00 for a cheeseburger, chips & a drink!!! There's signs everywhere telling walkers they're not allowed on most trails but cyclists are. I didn't see a single cyclist. A lot of the trees are diseased & fallen. The forest looks sick & I mean that in the unwell sense of the word. Your dog is likely to be shot unless it's on a leash (see photo). This place used to be nice but I wouldn't recommend going here any more. It's just a money grab & all the restrictions for walkers make it pointless.
