Student Testimonials

An exceptional course which was excellent value. I now have a much clearer idea of how to use my DSLR in a variety of circumstances which will benefit both my professional & social photography. The training was clear and concise with a good balance between practical photography and theory. Thanks J.D.

I was a complete novice but now I feel quite excited about experimenting with my photography.

Carol Aries.

I have attended several of Glen's courses and on every occasion I have found the sessions enjoyable and extremely informative.

I went on this HDR and RAW photography course with some trepidation, as I was concerned that it would be very technical, and be mostly about elaborate editing in Photoshop.

On both counts I was wrong. As usual Glen's calmly paced, easily understood tuition, followed by practicing the techniques, with a very useful review of the shots in their before and afterwards states.

In the most basic terms, I picked up invaluable tips on how to quickly improve the photos I've already taken. The terms "Bracketing"and "blending" sound very technical, but they are simple methods of accurately capturing the detail in a contrasting landscape shots (e.g. ground dark, sky light).

This training really helped with my understanding of the tonal range and contrast variations in a photograph , but more fundamentally, composition and the visualization of the finished picture before the shot was taken.

The session on RAW was excellent - this technique is simple, and relevant for those few 'special' landscape shots, that will benefit from some editing to bring out the contours of clouds, for example.

The editing in Photoshop was simple - the results from the session are images I would put on a wall!

I can't recommend this course highly enough, there really were some "eureka" moments, where all the knowledge I've picked up on Digital SLR photography all fell into place.
