Until I booked for the One to One training course at the Nikon School just off Oxford Street Schools I had no idea of the many functions of my Coolpix 340p Camera. My photography course at the Mary Ward Centre had been excellent but with us all having different compact cameras the tutor could only point out some of the features and the thick manual is daunting. I never managed to get good pictures of dark skies – the inbuilt meter over compensated and they look like daylight.
The many cranes in London with their red warning lights make you think there are new red constellations in the night sky.
This week we went out into Queen Square to photograph lines and repetitions. I am so used to just snapping photos before someone moves out or into the frame. It’s quite different taking the time to compose the picture.
Finally found a Briggs and Riley briefcase which doubles as a handbag and carry-all with a pocket large enough to take my laptop. A band at the back allows me to hang it on the pull-out handles on my luggage cases.
