You can spend as much money on a fancy camera as you like, but without the skills that allow you to venture out of 'Auto' mode, your photographs will never do your imagination justice. Photography Course London can help; you could win a tailored private course for two people at their studio in Shoreditch.
The course comprises two half day sessions; in the first you'll learn how to control your camera, control exposure and master creative effects such as shallow depth of field, long exposures and panning. Advanced users can develop their understanding of exposure and look into the more complex camera functions including histograms, lenses and RAW. Session two will be spent mastering Adobe Photoshop. Learn how to process RAW files, retouch your pictures and prepare images for print.
In addition, each winner will be given a professional photographic print of their choice and a place on a Photography Course London course of their choosing up to the value of £300 each. Courses include Beginner and Intermediate DSLR, Going Pro, Photoshop and Lightroom, Street Photography, DSLR Video, Studio Lighting, Portraiture, Darkroom and Analogue Photography.

Mister Lasagna Rupert Street
There are no prizes for guessing what’s on the menu at Mister Lasagna, but there’s a gold star up for grabs if you can guess how many varieties of the carby classic its menu boasts. Five? Ten? Not even close. Try 21. Although, disappointingly, they only offer a rotating selection each day. Still, a lack of choice is not an issue here. You can eat-in or takeaway, opt for extra sauce, and choose between three portion sizes: half-sized (£3.50), full-sized (£5.90), or a trio of half-sized portions (£7.80) for those struggling with food-based FOMO. Unfortunately, quantity doesn’t equate to quality. The vast selection is laid out on the countertop, but the portions are nuked in the microwave and served on unappealing polystyrene plates. Each dish features the same bland béchamel sauce, while the pasta is somehow both overdone and underdone – soggy yet lacking that enticing crispy top layer. The best of the bunch was a truffle, mushroom and sausage combination, saved by generous amounts of truffle oil, while the pesto lasagne was gloopy and lacking in flavour. Sadly, this is definitely not like mama used to make.
Venue says: “For only £10 we're offering six tapas lasagnas and one glass of either prosecco or wine to celebrate National Lasagna Day on July 29!”
