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!

Attended: Crash Course: Camera Basics

Sally did a great job breaking down complex ideas, and she made the process fun. While I know there's more to learn, I walked away feeling that I could get started...and that I wanted to do so!


Attended: Crash Course: Quick and Dirty Portraits

Didn't cover the last module. Had fun, but don't feel that I really learned that much. Lighting module was good.
