You won't be sat at a desk for hours but will instead have a chance to get out and about to put techniques into practice. After all, the best way to learn how to use your camera is by actually using it!

Please bring along your camera and manual (if you have one). Please ensure that your camera battery is charged and that you have plenty of space on your memory card. Tea, coffee and refreshments will be provided.
