So I am excited to get ready. Like I said, this is one of those classes that I've been doing photography for years I have been in how many workshops on photography? I have no idea. And yet every single time I take one of these fundamentals classes, I learned something, or I reinforce something that had sort of fallen by the wayside. And so I'm really excited, like you would think it would be the opposite. You think the more that you learn, the less the basics classes would be attractive to you. But for me, these are the ones that I really look forward to because they reinforce what is universal about photography. So I am excited for this course.
