As a keen amateur photographer, my wife booked me on to Andy's one day course on the beautiful Isle of Arran, for my birthday.
I was keen to move away from using the auto settings on my camera, and also explore digital photo manipulation to be able to achieve the best from my pictures.
Andy was very friendly and welcoming, and complimentary about a couple of my pictures that he'd asked me to send on to him in advance. He proceeded to take me through a tutorial on picture composition and other photographic techniques.
We then left for the beach and proceeded to put into action some of what I'd recently learnt.
After a couple of hours, we went back to look at the pictures on Andy's computer, and he took me through his digital workflow. We finished up with 3 fully processed images.
The whole day was really enjoyable and very educational.
