The Course is suited to all camera types from small digital and film to larger and the more advanced SLR.
What to Expect: We will all meet up in Killruddery house where there is a room provided for a 2 hours talk on the Photography techniques, methods and skills.
After this we visit the gardens of Killruddery house to take some pictures with the instructor available to give advice on how you can get the best results.
After lunch we will then take a short walk in the area to get some more exciting pictures. The Instructor will be you all day and available for any questions you might have about photography or your camera.
Then we will return to Killruddery house to go through some of your pictures and to go over what we have learnt from the day.
