September is traditionally a time of new beginnings and with the start of a new academic year people turn their attention to hobbies and interests to occupy the longer evenings. Autumn is a great time to learn new skills or improve existing  ones so why not join a small local class and get to grips with your computer or digital camera in time for Christmas?

Whether we like it or not, computers are now a part of our increasingly busy lives helping us to stay in touch with family & friends and get the best deals when we want to splash the cash on something new.  Increasingly people are choosing the convenience of faster, light weight modern notebook PC’s that can be used round the home, stored away in a cupboard when not needed or taken with you when you are away.

Today Windows 7 makes it easier than ever to get started with computing and before you know it, with a little help and guidance, you will have your own email address and be sending and receiving emails, surfing the web and taking advantage of all the great features a modern PC has to offer like built in web cameras to help you keep in touch. Prices start from just £300, of course you can spend a lot more on a feature packed powerful Notebook, extra software, product cover and support but the chances are you won’t need or want many of the extra features you are actually paying for so beware of hidden extras.  
 
If you are thinking of buying a new PC there is a vast choice. Do you want a Windows 7 PC or are you a drawn to the style of the more expensive Apple Mac but really don’t know which to choose? Would a tablet PC or Netbook do everything you want? Are you confused by the sales jargon and features available?   Would you like free impartial advice to help you buy the right PC for your needs? If so call me at Inspirations Training. I can accompany you or buy a laptop for you if you prefer and will setup your new computer and show you how to start using it from just £40. Help and advice on getting online for the first time is also available.

Would you like to learn how to use your computer, research the best deals or your family history online or just learn more about using all those new features?  I am hoping to run a weekly course this autumn for anyone who would like to become more confident in using their PC.   Classes will last 2 ½ hrs with a maximum of 5 people at  special offer price of £75 for 5 sessions including refreshments.  We will cover all the essential skills, and more,   including how to use email; make video calls and free phone calls using  Skype; surf the internet and keep your PC up to date and safe. I already have  few people interested so give me a call to find out more if you would like to join us.

Don’t forget September is also a good time to get out and about with your camera and this year is no exception with the welcome arrival of some long overdue sunny weather, just in time for the children to return to school!

For those of you lucky enough to be able to take advantage of it charge your camera batteries and get out and about taking some photos. It’s the ideal time to visit all those popular locations loved by holiday makers that are usually just too busy in the summer months; quaint picturesque fishing villages; beaches; local attractions and so on. This Indian summer weather provides a good quality of light but remember the best time for photography is always the golden hours, before and  after sunrise or sunset.
