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.
