Is the field session required to attend on tomorrow August 10 @ 930 and is this location at El Camino College?
Answer from Gregory M. Verified Student
I’m confused about this as well. It says the field session is in the fourth week. I think it’s a typo?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Jessica and Gregory! Thanks for catching that. The Saturday field session will take place on October 5th, 1:30 - 3:30 pm. We will update the page as soon as possible.

Question from JD
Would this class be good for a nice camera built into a smartphone? e.g. Samsung Galaxy 9+
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there, digital cameras have more features and controls than smartphone cameras. Perhaps 50% of class material may not apply directly to the Samsung smartphone camera, but the other 50% should be helpful. Hope this helps.
