  • <p>Good class. Jared is an excellent instructor and provided good information. I was more interested in Lightroom than scrapbooking and I think the mix was about right for me. While I found the focus on Trajen interesting and heartwarming ... I found that too much information was shared and too much time was spent on his story. It was distracting for me and I think would be hard to listen to over and over again if I were to buy this course. I think that some of the material was rushed because of the time spent covering this and other unrelated topics. I prefer a more focused approach. I was more comfortable when he was showing photos of his kids as examples the first day. However, I enjoyed the class and learned a lot. Thanks!!</p>
  • <p>Thank you soooo much Jared. I am an avid scrapbooker and still an amateur photographer, but you have given me so much helpful information that my pictures are looking really amazing now. I often share on Facebook and the compliments I have been getting since I started applying what I learned from you are astounding. I have never received so many compliments on my photos. Prayers and positive vibes for Trajan and his family and friends!!!</p>
  • <p>Jared&#39;s class was a good review of the LR and PS basics. The best part for me was the book/scrapbook publishing aspect which I don&#39;t do any of right now. Incorporating Trajen&#39;s story/book in the class is incentive for me to complete a project of my own cancer survivor journey. Much appreciation for Jared&#39;s generosity in donating the proceeds of the Trajen presets to help defray medical expenses. Keep up the great work.--sjmacro</p>
