"The day was full of amazing new learning experience for students including myself to explore the vast ways a photograph could be taken as well as the experience and methods a photographer needs to understand to make his/her imagination come true within a click of a camera. So all in all this was an amazing learning experience for us. Totally worth the time , wishing we got more time to explore other methods to photography and videography as well . But very glad that we got this opportunity to learn as Bath spa Students."

"I've learned so much in Yesterday's nikon workshop and made a lot of discovery about photography and videography. Whenever we needed help or questions, our instructor was there for us. It made me understand so much about photography that I never knew in the first place. Wish it would have lasted longer to know much more about photography and videography. I hope more opportunities like these would come, and I'd definitely go for it again."

The different techniques and settings that were covered in yesterday's class has exponentially improved my photography and videography skills which will be useful for my portfolio. Personally, it has made me appreciate the art of photography much more as I did discover a my innate passion. It also help me think of new perspective when viewing the world.
