experts always seem to get the light and mood of a picture just right?
In early October we are are thinking of putting together a short break
boating holiday which would include daily tuition from local
photographer Paul Studd. This will either be a three or four day mid
week break, not too structured but with pre arranged meeting points
to meet with Paul and your fellow boaters and learn how to take a better picture.
