    It was just really well-taught - covering content which could address all of our needs (as we all had different backgrounds/reasons for being there), also lots of useful analogies and tips to ground theory in pragmatism. While there was a lot of info to take away in, especially after a long day at work, I do actually feel like I've been able to retain just about all of it, and more importantly, left the class feeling pumped to get out there and start practicing rather than being overwhelmed. Well worth it!

    Thoughtful introduction to DLSR cameras (or mirrorless), with a step-by-step breakdown of basic functionality, including ISO, aperture, and shutter speed settings, along with a few other tips and tricks to lay the groundwork for great photos. The venue is in the basement of an industrial building in DUMBO and could use some proper A/C and ventilation. Otherwise a terrific class.

    Great overview for those of us new to DSLR. Very hands on, practical guide to basic photography terms and camera functions so that we could get out there and start shooting.

    Our class was too easily distracted (due to our own excitement) by the differences in our physical cameras/brands, but luckily it was because we (instructor included) had created a safe space where no question was offhand. I feel lucky to have had the instructor we got, he was the best! I'd love to take from him again!

    The class was super informative, and Larsen's explanations were clear and easy to follow. A lot of information in a 3 hour class, but totally worth it!
