"I have had a Digital SLR for years but have always stayed in my comfort zone and kept it in automatic mode. TTI's photography course has helped bring my camera to life. I learnt so many new techniques to create visual effects that I thought could only happen through Photoshop. And I could not ask for better subjects to photograph, the Gorillas are way more photogenic than the usual suspects. I now feel confident to put my new skills to practice to really get the most out of my camera. It was fantastic, highly recommended!"
