    Watch for a lot of gems in this one. A few take aways was working with the band and how to take the shot (even if they've aged) and loved the "Mosey" technique...i think thats going to be cool to shoot with some friends. What i really took away was stop stressing about the settings and enjoy the shoot. it comes out in the work and and the end you'll be happy and the client will be elated. Give it a spin, he starts off mentioning that he's not sue bryce (in so many words) and work with people in their natural environment.

    Sadly I was very disappointed in this class. It was an interesting watch and Jeremy is definitely an incredibly talented and artistic photographer. My complaint is that the class does not teach at all. Jeremy tells stories and shows his work but teaches almost no technique except for the one segment on Mixed Light.
