Back behind the camera

This weekend, I gave up the chance to potter in the garden and headed to the Farncombe Estate for a weekend of learning how to take better pics with photographer Nick Meers.

Having never been to Farncombe, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Even more so, as the course was billed as a beginner’s course and I was concerned it might be too basic, given I did have some knowledge.  I needn’t have worried.  It was great to be reminded of the basics and Nick found time to be with each member of the class, to show us each how our particular camera worked and to provide advice on our own specific interests.

As a result, I emerged totally enthused about photography once more and I know I shall be taking a lot more pics from now on.  In fact, I’ve been out this evening – here are some of the results from the last few days…
