Charlotte and her husband enjoyed the trip a lifetime to Africa during which Charlotte captured these memorable images with her Nikon D3300 and 18-300mm zoom lens. They are some of my favourites from the year....

From Charlotte: "I found the day so useful and informative...."

The topics we covered during the day included dealing with difficult lighting as well as plenty of hands-on practical work getting to grips with Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO. Making better use of the camera's focusing options and some handy rules of thumb to avoid camera shake were also covered that day


To Charlotte. Thank you once more for sending us your favourite safari shots and for your kind words. I hope you enjoy your ongoing journey into photography   Mark (tutor)

Julie-Anne had owned her Nikon DSLR for a couple of years but always used it on the “Green” Auto mode.


In Julie-Anne’s words “I longed to know more about the camera and use it on other settings to take better shots. The “One Day DSLR Course” was perfect for me, I took my own camera and quickly learned how to use the other functions. Mark (instructor) went round the class and showed everyone individually how to use their camera......”


“I couldn't believe how much I learned in one day!!!  I wish I had done the course two years ago when I first got the camera. After the course I went on holiday to Florida and thoroughly enjoyed using my  camera......I'm hooked now!” Julie-Anne


To Julie-Anne. Many thanks for your kind words. We have included your key camera settings below your shots. Well done particularly on the high-zoom, bird shots!  Mark (tutor)

Stephen McGill recently purchased a Nikon DSLR and has been travelling in the USA, whilst enjoying getting the most from his camera. His exciting trip has taken him around Las Vegas, Death Valley, & Monument Valley. Following the trip,we received these images from him. Here are a few of his 1200+ photos. It looks like he had a great time!


Stephen kindly says of our Course, which he attended to enable him to prepare for his trip..........

Thank you for the course yesterday I learnt so much. Please see attached a photograph I imported today and edited using the techniques you showed me yesterday, you have before and after. I imported about 300 photos from a memory card in the D500 today using the catalogue system we discussed.
