Great beginner course to learn photography basics. There was no pressure to take beautifully composed photographs, we just focussed on learning what all the buttons do and understanding how to achieve correct exposure. By the end of the course I felt confident that I could use the camera in full manual mode and be more artistic with my photo-taking. 5/5 by Liz Cain 26-7-2021
