Travel: photography courses
Course Digital cameras let us all snap away like pros, but often we don't get past the auto settings. A two-day Introduction to Digital Photography course with Red Cloud Days will change that.
Location There are weekend courses nationwide. One of the best is set in west London using deer-filled Richmond Park.
Details Tutors are working photographers, who take groups of up to 12 through use of aperture, shutter speed, ISO and so on - practising each step individually over seven hours. On day two, you'll work to a creative brief.
Stay Indoor tuition takes place at four-star Richmond Hill Hotel, where a single room costs from £79, room only (richmondhill-hotel.co.uk).
