    It was a good class but I felt like the instructor wasn’t the best at engaging students. At times it was clear that majority of students were confused and not able to follow his thought process I did enjoy all the photo exercises outdoor but wish we spent more time outdoors than in a classroom looking at the presentation slides

    Really great! I feel like I know so much more about how to operate my camera, but also the fundamentals of taking photos that had eluded me for so long. I'm excited to get out and play around with the techniques I learned.

    The class was just what I was looking for. Even as someone who is fairly familiar with optics and photography terminology I gained a lot of new information from the course. I left the course confident and excited to practice the learned methods.

    I bought a DSLR camera but had no idea how to use it other than the preset dials. This class was everything I was looking for. Perfect for a beginner who runs into some trouble getting the picture they want to take. I learned how to adjust light sensitivity, shutter speed, create different depth of field and bettter focus. Definitely recommend.

    Excellent class, I'd had some photography experience before, but this was an excellent refresher that also taught me stuff on my DSLR that I'd never worked with before. Everything was laid out clearly and built on prior concepts well, and I've already signed up for their next level class. Highly recommended!
