How much did I love being able to help Alex master her Olympus TG6 and Weelight recently on a 4 Hour Get Creative with Your Compact Camera Course.
Starting at 10 am with coffee and finishing just after 2 pm with more coffee :) and cake too, we explored the wonderful world of ISOs, Apertures and Shutter Speeds before moving onto Creative & Lighting Techniques. The lights were dimmed to simulate night diving to practice getting to grips with her video light and all in all, I'm not too sure who was more inspired!
Here is what Alex had to say, thanks so much Alex, chuffed to bits that I could help you :)
"I met Maria about 5 years ago at the Dive Show and she must have made an impression. I have always been a bit of a point and press and hope for the best with my camera. I decided to upgrade and thought this is the time to actually learn a bit more.
Communication was great and Maria tailored the course around me. The time flew by and I feel I learnt absolutely loads and finally had an understanding as to how I could improve my pictures.
I can't wait to get in the water and start practicing. Maria has been supportive, knowledgeable and on my agenda."
