I have just finished a really useful day long photo course run at Bakewell by Tez Marsden
I took along my trustee Nikon DSLR camera in the hope that I would finally put it through its paces 3 years after receiving it as a wonderful birthday gift.
Tez put us through some useful reminders about: rule of thirds, depth of field and effects of shutter speeds. Then we all decamped and started clicking away down at the River Wye.
Finally we had a go at exploring changes in aperture and shutter speed. This took us away from ‘Auto’ and back to those skills I learned years ago on old East German Praktika camera.
Slow shutter speeds seem to turn the waters of the Wye into fur!
But as we set off back at the end of the day, the sun came out and I just had to catch the river from the town bridge.
Now I need to get out there are practise my skills!
