Light Up Christmas with a Quick Photo Course
Chris Coe will be running two short photo courses (2 1/2 hours each) on Wednesday 10th Dec for anyone who'd like to get the most from their digital camera. The first (from 4 to 6.30pm) is on learning the key things about your digital camera set-up and how to get the best out of it when you're travelling, and the second (from 7 to 9.30pm) on how to get those really atmospheric low-light shots on your travels. Both courses will include going out on a shoot to put what you've learnt into practice. They start and finish at the Intrepid Travel store in Islington, London. They cost 40 each but include vouchers worth 100 off Intrepid trips and Photo Iconic photography courses.
