Dear Jean, Thank you so much for yesterday's Part 2 DSLR camera course. As you know, I have been on several Going Digital courses in the last few months but this was by far the best. I now feel I have much greater understanding of my camera, its capabilities and limitations. I look forward to taking real pictures in the future and not just snaps. I also look forward to more of your courses next year.
Best wishes, Jane
Can I start by saying a very big thank you to yourself, Paul and Paul for a fabulous day last Sunday, I had a wonderful time photographing Paul's beautiful birds with a group of very friendly fellow photographers and hugely experienced tutors who genuinely wanted us to get the best out of the day and produce some great photographs.
I came away thinking if I had 5 or 6 good photographs to send to you I would be happy, the problem has been whittling it down from about 30 breathtaking shots and about 100 great shots!
On another note can I also say how good Ash and Pandora were on the last workshop I attended, like Ash I enjoy photographing bands and was struggling to get any useful shots, his advice has come in very handy for the back end of he festival season and I have taken some great photographs of which one is going to be published in Classic Rock magazine (the band I took the photo of are using it for their promotional literature).
I am looking forward to trying out some new techniques in November when I am attending the next Wildlife workshop with yourself and Paul at Clumber Park.
All for now
Hi Rod, Thanks for an enjoyable and informative course. I
arrived with a some understanding of each setting in isolation
and left able to think of them in combination. Next stage, put
the theory into practice. Your, incidental, practical advice on
equipment and software was especially valuable. All the best.

I have just attended a getting to know your SLR part 1 and 2 at
Tredegar House this month with Allan Frost. Both of my
days were brilliant and Allan was very good, patient and helpful
and perfect at explaining things.... Ceri Roche
I just wanted to write and thank all the tutors who ran the Explore Your DSLR/Compact System Camera Part 2 at Hardwick Hall. It was a
really enjoyable informative day. After completing the
exercises for blurring and freezing motion using spinning umbrellas,
I was inspired to go and photograph moving water at Padley Gorge.
This was something I wanted to try out for a while, but didn't have
the knowledge to get the results I wanted. I am sending two photos,
one with an exposure time of 2 seconds, and one with an exposure
time of 1/400th second. I look forward to doing other courses
in the future.
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed yesterday. It was indeed a
full day and so much information to take in but well and truly worth
Just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic course yesterday. It
was really informative and I got a lot out of it. Will look to do
another one in the future - probably the landscape one.
If in doubt, please contact your
local tutor for advice.
This workshop covers:
compact system cameras (compact cameras with
interchangeable lenses) like the Panasonic Lumix G, Sony NEX,

all these workshops, we may decide to run this session
indoors on very wet days and during the Winter. This
does not change the basic content of the workshop.
