    This course was really informative for me having never done long exposure photography before. Toby took the time to set up my camera and explain what settings I needed to use for long exposure photography. He also let me play around with the settings to get the photo I wanted but was on hand if I needed any help. Toby was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend this course.

    Taken with Nikon D7500 with 300mm Nikkor lens. Two male Kingfishers possibly adult male and offspring sitting low by the River Crane. Light was low so had to use a high ISO. Because of this the image had to be denoised . It was then cropped and clarity and texture added in Lightroom. I have a nice triptych of them sitting in three different poses.
