Thank you so much, Helen, for giving me confidence to start shooting in the Manual mode. I've got now a much better understanding of the Exposure Triangle and focus points. I also know which buttons to use to quickly change aperture and shutter speed settings. Two hours packed with useful tips and information. The course notes are an excellent addition to the tuition. And thank you for getting the swans to pose for my pictures!

Response from Helen Tisbury Photography:

Thank you for taking the time to review my workshop, I am thrilled to learn that you enjoyed the course and now feel confident enough to now shoot fully manual. With practice changing your settings will become 2nd nature.

I am glad the swans got the memo, its a shame we didn't get a little more sun on the day.

Helen told me all about shutter /aperture speed which I could never understand always flew over my head. Now I know all the settings /buttons of my Nikon DSLR and can take better pictures. I have always used auto mode for pictures but now I can do it on manual. I'm very much looking forward to my next bite-size session with Helen.
Good thing is she very calmly tell you each and every detail of what magic your camera can do.
Thank you, Helen

Response from Helen Tisbury Photography:

Hi Reema,
Thank you for your feedback on my One to One Bite Size photography workshop.
I thrilled to hear that I helped you understand Aperture and Shutter speeds, that you can now navigate your way round your Nikon. Its great that you now feel confident and have started to use it on manual, taking better photographs.
I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and look forward to welcoming you again.
