Cambridge digital photography courses for beginners

Digital photography courses in Cambridge for beginners Despite the bitterly cold weather another group of hardy wannabe photographers spent the weekend with me learning the skills and techniques to start capturing some great images. Working with small groups of only eight people ensures that we can teach and learn in a friendly and comfortable environment which everyone enjoys and has some fun. The group produced some absolutely stunning images during our time in Cambridge city centre and everyone left with a real sense of enthusiasm and enjoyment. I have put together a few images from the day here and a video slide show as well. We have been running our digital photography workshops in Cambridge for a couple of years now and the feedback has…
