The Photography Learning Forum is based in Newcastle and operates through Facebook. The Forum provides free assistance and guidance to amateur photographers via on-line learning. Professional photographers provide their skill and expertise to the community. Participants can ask questions via online forums, video tutorials and photographic exercises. If you have recently purchased a digital camera they can show you how to use it effectively.
