From wind-ups to charge-ups, Polaroids to pixels, the evolution of the humble camera would have made Darwin proud—but it can be a real bother to get your head round. Make the natural selection of this photography break to the Charterhouse Retreat, and you can enhance your capabilities as you relax in the Northamptonshire countryside.

Escape to this stunning 18th-century barn conversion buried deep in the glorious Northamptonshire lanscape and embark on a two-night photography retreat for one person for £250 (up to a £500 value), or gene-pool your resources and take a partner along for £440 (up to a £700 value). Either way you'll stay in a lovingly appointed en suite room and have access to the spot-lit indoor pool and infra-red sauna. If you wish, you can have the voucher presented as a gift voucher, making this the ideal pressie for would-be photographers.

This break has plenty of guidance designed to mutate your off-colour headless snaps into professional photos; on one day you'll receive a group workshop on technique and getting the most from your camera, covering such topics as settings, aperture, shutter speed, depth of field, ISO, white balance, and composition. You'll also receive a one-on-one photoshop tutorial, ensuring you can get the best from your pictures in the edit stage. At the end of the break you'll receive a framed print of your favourite photo taken over the break.

Each guest will arise to a tasty breakfast morning, receive a three-course dinner on both evenings, and also enjoy a light lunch on one day. The kitchen team offer fresh, vibrant flavours as well as a range of options for different dietary requirements.
