"I for one, having been interested and involved in photography for over 50 years as a ‘happy snapper’, sometimes serious participant and in my working environment, found something ‘new’ to play with in my DSLR. Your tips and tricks certainly helped me to get out of ‘Auto Mode’ with my camera." Peter Drummond
