I very nearly didn't go, nerves nearly got the better of me, but I'm so pleased I did. In those few hours I was there I went from only being able to turn my DSLR on (get it onto some form of setting, usually the portrait or close up and literally take the picture) to using my camera in fully manual mode.
That's HUGE for me.
I repeat, M.A.N.U.A.L. Mode. I'm can't quite believe that but now, I must remember to practise or else I'm sure I will forget everything.
Here's some of the finished shots with no editing whatsoever. What do you think for a first attempt?
I felt so happy and inspired behind my camera. I thought for a moment, gosh, imagine having that type of feeling from your job...
