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.

This class is exactly as advertised. I've got a better understanding of my DSLR's functionality, which is what I was looking for.
