  • The camera has always been a huge frustration. Not anymore. I totally get it and whats even more important, its fun again!

  • I have taken several photo ‘classes’ in the past. Online, community college and the one they offer at the camera store. I learned more in two days than all of it combined and I retained it. Loving the camera now.

  • Since I paid good money for the camera I should have taken this workshop 5 years ago, it would have saved a lot of headache. Highly recommended.
