    This was a very interesting class. I love Emily's personal style and I would love to see a 2 or 3 day class by her on Creativelive.

    This class was a disappointment. I've watched a number of classes from Creative Live and most have been awesome, this was a rare let down. Not only did this class feel like it was promoting brands to the benefit of the teacher, so many things were poorly explained and taught. Maybe it was the design of the class to not truly reveal so much to protect the artists secrets of creation?? Not sure - but Emily did a poor job of fully explaining all aspects and skimmed over details that should not have been missed - from the specifics of film chooses (she did not which year of pack film she uses) to the model of land camera and Canon EOS she uses to the polaroid transfer process - just to list a few. literally none of those things were explained but seem to be the bulk of what actually makes up her work and why someone would want to take a class from her. She also seemed ill prepared for the class. I hope Creative Live makes an effort to create more classes of this nature but that actually do a thorough job of covering the bases.

    Emily Soto started giving a brief presentation of her work associated with different types of cameras. It was interesting. But it was just too obvious that it was also a "product showcase" showing the owned/sponsored equipments (the "best" part was the backpack designed and presented by her assistant). 35 mins later, the demo shoot finally begins, but again, the "product demo" feeling is just too strong. Quite disappointing for someone who just wants to go to the essence of photography, which was the magical mind behind the expensive equipments, especially when it's the first time I watch a teaching video with Emily Soto. I expected more about her imagination instead of a product showcase.
