being more of a hands on sort of person I have found that I more from actually "doing rather than reading" and would like to receive some guidance on who/what /were and when I could find someone who can help/advise on the best way to get more out of my gear.
I have done a few locally but find that there is more "classroom" rather than hands on
The local camera club is very orientated and tend to concentrate more on comps than instuction/guidance to new members
Of course cost also plays an important part but if it is "value for money" i do not mind paying a reasonable fee (What do people consider to be reasonable ?)
I do realise "that Rome was not built in a day" and practice, practice , practice is also required to atain a higher level of consistency
All thoughts / comments appreciated
