Some character references:
- “I was impressed with how well the class was run, the amount of material covered so thoroughly and how all different camera types were incorporated without it causing issues. I was really impressed with the whole experience. Great instructors!!”
- “Everything was condensed and taught at a basic level which helped with the confusion I had before coming to class. Bottom Line: Great class for confused beginners.”
- “Everything about this class was excellent. The instructors were patient and took time to answer every question thoroughly and we were given ample time to try out the techniques we were being shown. All in all, a wonderful experience.”
- “Very much liked the instructors- knowledgeable, entertaining, encouraging, not judgmental. Loved the casual nature of the class and opportunity for one-on-one discussions. Excellent for me, as a novice.”
