So Make Them Your Own

If you enjoy taking photographs and own a digital SLR (DSLR), Mirrorless camera, or any digital camera with a control dial on top. If you shoot on auto and hope for the best or have tried various settings with mixed results. You may want to learn photography to make precious memories by photographing your children, pets, or a special holiday. Perhaps you want to take your photography up to the next level, want to shoot fully manual or learn long exposure. There is something for everyone.

All workshops will give you a good foundation, taught without using all the hard to understand technical jargon.
