What do people say about A Year With My Camera?

"I can't tell you how excited I was this morning when I remembered my A Year With My Camera lesson about aperture priority and was able to capture some blossom and blur the background, exactly as I wanted the pic to appear."

"I'm feeling proud that I am taking photos in full manual controls."

"I've been taking photos for years and years and years, and this is the first time anyone has managed to explain the interaction between aperture, shutter speed and ISO in a way that I understand."

"A big thanks to Emma for giving me the confidence to take the camera off Auto."

"As a novice with my first DSLR I have a lot to learn but am floundering far less than I would be otherwise."

"I've had my DSLR a year this month and only just now properly understanding aperture. Emma you are an excellent teacher, I'm so excited to learn more."

"A Year With My Camera is pushing me out of my comfort zone which is exactly what I wanted."

"I just love your lessons. I enjoy each and every one thoroughly and cannot wait for Thursdays to see what we are doing next!"
