I recently attended a one day photography workshop in Algonquin Park with Cobi of Waboose Adventures. I learned more about photography in that one day workshop than I have in years of being in a photography club. The day was well planned. Cobi walked us through some excellent and easy to follow written materials which explained aperture, shutter speed, and ISO among other things. She then had us try a few simple exercises and was very patient and helpful. In the afternoon we went hiking and photographing along the way and again Cobi was very interesting and helpful. Not only did I learn more about how to use the camera, but I also learned more about good design. I highly recommend Cobi to anyone interested in improving their photographic skills and I look forward to attending other workshops that she puts on. – Cathy Craig
