Jose led a nicely structured photography program, leading us through use of light, leading lines, curves and composition. The group size was perfect, with Jose giving every participant individual time during the morning's session.

Lucy was very understanding on everyone's level of expertise and was very open to any questions. unfortunately I had to leave a half hour early as I was not feeling too well but she was good about that. However by that time I still had gained a lot of knowledge about my camera.

Matt sets some very useful challenges and included technical explanations that meant we learnt more about our cameras, capturing the available light and achieving the images we were striving for. The setting and weather was great. Very enjoyable session.

This event was excellent. Matt had us experiment with white balance in a way that I will never forget. He also had us experiment with makeshift color and partial ND filters which was extraordinary and simple. I got a bit lost with the 僧ovement after the train spotting mostly due to crowded city. Excellent event, highly recommended.
