Like so many people, I have wanted to get into photography and off of "full auto" mode for so long, but have always found excuses to put it off for another day. This class was exactly the jump start I needed. Even though everything we learned can be summed up on one sheet of paper, the class developed those fundamental concepts very well so that they now feel intuitive. I think achieving the same level of intuition for the things we learned would have taken me twice as long if I had tried to teach myself using books or online sources (and, at the rate I was going, probably spread out over five years!). The class was also very fairly priced. After putting in some practice myself, I definitely plan to enroll in another class with this company.

Teacher was super helpful, and willing to thoroughly explain all questions. You’re able to take this class even if you’ve never been in a darkroom before.

Learned a lot in a short period of time but it never felt rushed or overwhelming. Had a great time and loved the teacher!

Charles is a fabulous teacher, calmly and coolly walking and talking us through some pretty complex, arcane stuff. He did an excellent job of telling us how our cameras work and then allowing us to experiment with the concepts we learned in the class to reinforce the concepts we learned. This is the photography class I've been looking for for years.
