I wanted to thank you and say how much I learnt from the few days with you. I feel that I now have some confidence to go out and “practice” without fear of being a total idiot. The extra tweaks learnt in Lightroom are indeed marvellous, including the new killer tip of “Kill the Ducks”.
Your mantra of slowing down and composing as the most important lessons to learn, is indeed very wise. With an order of LEE filters on the cards, I will be starting a great journey into a new aspect of photography.
