Has a 30x zoom, touch screen, 4K video, and has manual mode & aperture & shutter priority modes too. I want to sign up for your workshops on 3 & 9 Sept, and really would like to do a weekend walk in Hyderabad as well. Is this possible? I’m fairly good at composing shots, I just need to learn which camera features I should try to use 1st. Can you help me sort out these details in a few sessions? Also want to continue with photo classes/training with you after our trip. I especially like landscapes & interesting people as we travel alot & frequently too. Going to Australia & New Zealand in Dec.
    Please reply ASAP. Where do you hold your classes? How much is price per class? Where do you do the Hyderabad walks on the weekends?
    Your photos are incredible!
    Thanks very much!!
