For many years I was an "uncover photographer". I was an active member of a photography club and had gathered enough information from fellow photographers and Youtube to use my camera adiquely. When visiting Cape Town, I booked a landscape photography masterclass with Martin Osner, convinced that I was ready for the next step. Well, an hour into the workshop, I realised that I was out of my depth and needed foundational photography teaching. When I got home, I brushed my pride aside and booked his online basic to the intermediate course. I should have done this course years ago! It was the best money I have ever spent on my photography.
