1 Day Workout: Composition Tune-Up

Very interesting class on photo composition. I definitely appreciated the slides and the discussions as we examined some examples of paintings and photos.. Interesting to use art examples and not just photos to illustrate the different points. It helped that the instructor had art theory background. My only critique/suggestion would be that I thought instructor would also accompany us during the picture taking exercise.. but then again.. it still works as we're trusted to go on our own and discover and then we discuss in length back in the classroom.. which was done here.. I would definitely recommend the class to anyone wanting to learn theory behind photo composition.. *One question.. is it possible to get copy of the power point presentation from the class? I was jotting down some of the artist names and paintings but def missed some. would like to have that so I can look up online.. Thx

Sally is remarkable in her skills (decade + of photography experience and education), her teaching abilities (excellent slides, examples, real world situations, and practice), and her humor (a bonus). This class was picture perfect.

The instructor was really good and knowledgeable. But I didn't feel that I really knew my camera THAT much more than I did before. Also the space wasn't great. Too small, hot, and hard to find. I enjoyed the class and will definitely take another one. I was just hoping for more.

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!

The class was exactly what I needed to go from auto to manual mode. Money well spent.
