As per the title really - I've had my Canon DSLR (1200D) for just over a year and have been enjoying it greatly, though pretty much all of my pictures are taken using the pre-set modes. I specifically chose this model because of it's simplicity and the fact it's geared up to beginners. I'm really keen to learn more about the manual functions of the camera and about photography in general but I've struggled to take in and truly learn from the books I've read. I'm not fantastic with technology and I think I learn better face to face so I'd love to do a course (1 or 2 days or longer). I've looked online and found various providers plus internet only options - tbh there are so many it's difficult to work out what's what. I also wondered about part time college courses/evening classes. I mainly take landscape, pets, birds etc and have a simple tripod and a 50mm and 75-300mm lenses as well as the stock 35-55mm lens. I'm happy to upgrade my camera if necessary but that seems ridiculous at this stage as I can't even use a simple DSLR properly yet. I'm in the Midlands, UK and happy to travel for day courses but would need something more local if regular attendance is required. Does anyone have any experience of this kind of course or know of anything that is well regarded? Many thanks for any ideas.
