Sunday Mail: Wildlife photography lessons
Like many people I have a fairly sophisticated camera but I always use it on automatic settings. This, I know, is silly because there are much better pictures to be taken if the camera is utilised on manual. But reading the guides to photography is complex and forgettable.
That’s why I decided to join a wildlife photography course. I chose one taught by award-winning wildlife photographer Philip Price, of Loch Visions, near Taynault, Oban, Argyll. It was an amazing experience.
Philip takes cameras and photography back to basics but in a non-patronising way. I finally understood how a camera works and how to adjust the aperture, shutter speed and lens.
