“Hi Steve,

Thank you for conducting your  “New DSLR” class.  I learned a lot! As a retired teacher, principal and faculty member at the UH College of Education, I could see how you apply many of the best practices for effective teaching.  Using analogies like windows, blinds, and doors  in a room, having your classic Canon camera to demonstrate f stops, allowing us to practice what we just learned in the garden park, all helped to make it easier to understand iso, f stops, shutter speed and white balance.–Fran”

“Hi Stephen! Thank you again for the wonderful class today! I learned so much about my new camera and I cannot wait to practice the new skills! I look forward to signing up for more classes with you. Thank you. –Haneen” (So You Just Bought a New DSLR/SLR, Now What?)

“Hi Steve,

I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your class!  I have to admit I was a little skeptical about this class before attending.  My very nature is to always have low assumptions unfortunately (The opposite of my wife).  I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by your comprehensive knowledge about photography, and your ability to convey the fundamentals to us.  Your description of how the light is bent by the glass in the lens and how that interaction with the aperture affects the depth of field really made a lot of sense to me.  For me the most important thing was to understand how the light meter system worked on my camera.  I head no idea how to adjust both the aperture and shutter speed in manual mode on my camera until you explained holding down the plus/minus button while turning the dial (Nikon).  I will be shooting in manual mode a lot more often now!  

Again, thanks for the great class.  I might try to take one of the other classes you offer in the future!

Respectfully,

Jess Williams
