The session was reschedule to the Sunday due to bad weather which was a great call! We were introduced to the monochrome setting on the camera and then head off to explore NQ with a few tasks to complete. The tasks were quite varied allowing us to get pretty creative. Warren was very polite and encouraging, and gave us really useful tips in regards to camera settings. I learned a lot from this course and my photos look great! In regards to safety, I felt quite safe with >1m distance maintained for most of the course.
