6 ClassBento workshops attended

you could download the app and do this yourself. It was mostly walking around and taking photos of things and then playing with the app. Didn't learn much. No fed back from the photos taken after the 2nd place visited. would not recommend this as knew most of it and my daughter already knew this and was showing me how to use the app and things

Reply from this teacher:

Appreciate your review despite being the first ever 3 stars (usually 4-5 stars). On the photo walk all my photo tutors are highly skilled at teaching. Feedback about your own photos is always available but not forced. Sorry to hear about your experience. Alfonso

It was amazing, I got 1 on 1 experience and focused on my challenging points. I learnt a lot and had so much fun!

Dan was very knowledgeable and encouraging to students of various levels.
I appreciated learning more about editing photos, something I’ve not done before. Dan give hints on lighting, contrast, shadowing and looking at things from a totally different perspective when framing photos. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend it.
Unfortunately it was a very hot day and I was fading a bit by the end of it.
Nevertheless, very, very worthwhile.
I edited the photo below and like the table tops which are like stepping stones, leading to who knows where.
Thanks Dan!

Daniel was very knowledgeable and a great teacher. It was great being in a small group as you got plenty of one on one time. The areas we visited to take photos were great and I particularly enjoyed the botanical gardens. I really enjoyed learning about how to edit photos.
