Last week I attended the Beginners Photography Course at the London Institute of Photography*. I’ve been blogging for 5 years and my photography has vastly improved in that time (I stopped using my phone camera for a start!) but I still wasn’t happy with the way my photos looked. I used my DSLR on the manual setting, but I basically mashed buttons until the settings were exactly how I wanted them to be and god forbid if anyone touched them! I knew that I needed to discover exactly what my camera was capable of and how I could make it work for me rather than pointing, clicking and hoping for the best.
