“I recently had the opportunity to take part in a trial of a photographic skills course as an option on safari in Botswana. Photographing the amazing wildlife and stunning landscapes is central to most safaris, but the current crop of digital cameras in auto mode do it all for you don’t they? Well think again. Over the course of several days Peter Hassall and Leanne Dryburgh (thephotowalkers.com) with their infectious enthusiasm gave the group a real feeling for how good photography is more than point and shoot. In one-to-one sessions they covered topics such as setting up the camera, interpreting meter readings relative to the quality and intensity of light, composition and framing the picture and, importantly, the advantages of manual control. There was also an opportunity to try out different lenses and even cameras. I found this a really stimulating programme and would recommend this option to anyone with an interest in photography at any level.” D.W London
