It's been so much fun this summer to see my photography teaching explode. Quite literally, it's taken off faster and more abundantly than I ever imagined possible (the implications in that statement alone are huge!). In combination with getting more students, they've started being more vocal about why they keep coming back for more instruction.
Reading their comments has fed my soul so deeply - from 1-on-1 students to those in my group classes, I'm so blessed to see how God is using my technical, artistic, and communicative talents to impact people's lives. In effort to "remember" I added a "Student Review" section to the website. I hope to add through the years the thoughts and reflections of those I've had the privilege of teaching a new way to see the world.
"I just wanted to thank you so much for making the manual settings seem so clear to me now. I've been practicing and feel pretty good in an everyday setting with manual mode. I'm working on collecting some shots to share with you from my homework assignment. Thanks again!" --Ammie L.
"Just wanted to let you know I downloaded the Lightroom package, bought a couple more memory cards, and will shoot in RAW for the first time this weekend. Just wanted to say thanks for helping me to step outside my comfort zone. Next Step - new Macro Lens (hopefully before September)." --Becky D.
"I feel like you directly influence all of my photos, thinking about where I focus, what the shutter speed is, aperture, and light. : ) So blessed to have your voice in my head as I grow in this area!" --Elizabeth B.
