Quickly revisited some of the part 1 course and reaffirmed best practises when it comes to working with ISO, aperture and shutter speeds. Not as many opportunities for practical exercises this time, but lots of room for discussions and helpful Q&A sessions with Neil and the rest of the group. Really enjoyed learning about image composition and finding out what camera settings, lenses & equipment are best for specific photography interests e.g. portrait, wildlife, landscape photography etc.
Excellent coach and well explained throughout; very patient. I have taken away enough knowledge to restart my photography experiences and can now practice.
I wanted to learn how to shoot in low light conditions and definitely achieved that. The tutor was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. I wish I'd done it when I bought the camera!! Thank you!
A very good and full day's course, with a trainer, Neil Freeman, who was able to address the interests of all there - from first-timers to established pros.
Being part of the Nikon School allowed access to parts of the circuit not normally available to the public, and Neil was able to talk us through, and set as an exercise, the sort of brief a real press photographer would be expected to work to.
Fully recommended - and for the first time ever I enjoyed a good lunch at a racing circuit!
Course packed with information. Trainer highly skilled and very willing to share knowledge.
This exceeded my expectations as it wasn't clear to me we would have dedicated free runners performing for us for the entire day -- I learnt a lot and also got to play with a good lens that Tom lent me. And the runners were very professional and actually very impressive!
This was an excellent extension of Day 1 of the Getting Started with DSLR course. There was a little bit of going over the basics we learnt on Day 1 but went into more detail on how to visualise and construct a good photo, rather than what the different functions of the camera can do.
Looking at three styles of photography (portraiture, landscape and action) and going into detail of how to get a good shot, what modes/tricks to use was also very helpful.
Being a newbie to photography I jumped straight in and purchased the Nikon D850. I knew I would have to learn a lot and seriously get to know, not just the camera, but the craft. I needed someone that knew the camera inside and out to show me exactly how to handle this amazing piece of kit. The 1-2-1 course with Ricci was fantastic. I came away not only knowing my camera but also professional tips and how to take things forward for better results.
Neil’s teaching approach is second to none, his passion for photography and his demystification of the subject are superb. His use of hands on and interactive learning gave the maximum knowledge transfer possible.
10/10 for both course content and tutorial style
As always the day ends far too quickly!
The welcome was warm, the venue easy to find. The coffee was good and available when you wanted. The course content covered what was advertised and I left knowing more about my camera than when I arrived.
