  • "We bought our camera when our children were born so we could document their lives – but have only ever used the camera on its automatic setting. The camera course has given me the confidence to explore my camera and experiment with it on different settings. The take home information has also been brilliant to refer back to with lots of short cuts and top tips. I can’t wait to get out and use my camera more."
