    Found it very interesting how Elise translated Photshop style art composition onto her mobile and how she scouted for images. It would have been good to have had a list of the apps she uses in the class information page. I had to go to her website to find them. I appreciate she mentioned them in her tutorial but a list would have been helpful too. Having been doing composite work on my iphone recently it was great to see another artist at work and their approach. All in all, very enjoyable class.

    I think the class could have been longer with more detail about the editing. I am glad I purchased the class and can go back to watch again because she goes through the editing process very fast. Overall some good tips about shooting with your phone and worth $25 to me.

    This class did not bring me anything new. No inspiration. Elises best tip is to shoot, shoot, shoot. In a very long video you watch her shoot a skyline for about 200 times, because... you never know. I was very interested in tips about what editing-apps to use, but other than just seeing Elise using an app (what app????) you will not learn about this. And about organizing (that would be nice!) nothing more than how to make an album in Photo's. Very disappointing!
