Sara was wonderful entertaining, informative and most important PATIENT

Attended: Digital Photography II: Intermediate

Gave me exactly what I was looking for to get familiar again with controlling my camera, and expanding my skills and knowledge at how to take advantage of the tools to improve the quality of my photos. And it got me excited again about just getting out and taking photos to try different things, look for different subjects and presentations in my shots. I would have liked more critique about the photos themselves and how to improve them and achieve what I was trying to capture. I got the technique support, but toward the end of the sessions I was hoping for more feedback on the images themselves and how to improve at the craft.

Loved everything about this class! Digital Photo II was a great experience but you definitely need to take digital photo I first to get the full understanding of everything. I really hope BKC is working on a digital photo III class cause I'd be the first to sign up!

Attended: 1 Day Workout: Composition Tune-Up

This was a very enjoyable class with a knowledgeable instructor. I learned a lot about the camera and composition. I've read many books on this subject but having a professional photographer provide instant feedback on the work of many students was a great learning experience.

This class was everything I expected it to be. I came out knowing the basics of how to shoot a photo manually. This gave me the confidence I needed to get out and start taking photos without the auto on!
