Photography Course in Robin Hoods Bay

We've been looking forward to this weekend for what seems absolutely ages - by 8.30am Saturday morning we were already on the road to Whitby armed with our new cameras and tripods.  Afer a rather expensive ham sandwich with chunky chips served up in a flower pot!!! yes a flower pot!! we explored the shops and then headed back to RHB to our Bed & Breakfast The Manning Tree.

Sunday we were up bright and early and on the beach at RHB by 9am.  Our course started at 10am so with a hot cuppa, a presentation to watch, theory papers to fill in and learn (which to be honest went straight over my head), we were off putting all we'd learnt that morning into practise.  Keith our tutor was brilliant - we were all novices but he still managed to give us the attention we needed with our cameras.

Afer 3 hours of camera practise these are just a couple of shots I came up with using large and shallow depth of field, moving my focus point from centre to left, macro shots etc

and the winning photo of the day was my shot of this flower lol....

Both hubby and myself had a brilliant time and already looking at attending Part 2 of the course early next year.

Thanks for looking
