Latest course reviews...

Reminding and revising all of those basic skills

The course started bringing all of us together with a reminder of the basics of photography so that we were well prepared for the instruction to follow. Once we got into composition Neil & Ricci showed us new ways of looking at the world and how to get the best images from what we saw. Lots of helpful hints on what lenses to use, when to use a tripod and how to use the autofocus modes found on Nikon Cameras. Thanks to you both.
