Reviews

  • Excellent class! Holy moly, check out their websites! Lots of good advice, especially for the novice.
  • Reviewed http://www.ishootshows.com a year ago and found same data/info there free. Was looking for more/better info than what was presented.
  • Not a whole lot of information unless you just want to write down their settings that they took particular photos
