I just finished Digital Photo I. The class exceeded my expectations in every way. The teachers were wonderful and presented all information in a clear and comprehensive fashion. I had to miss one class due to a conflict, and they made it easy to make up that class. The printed materials you get as part of the class are very helpful. Before this class, I never moved out of Auto mode on my camera. Now I will never move out of Manual. I never though I would be able to learn so quickly or so well in just one course that this would be possible. I'm signing up for the next course now!
