"I was skeptical about taking an on-line workshop run by someone half way across the world. However, from the moment I logged on I was blown away by how efficiently the workshop was run and how easy the forum was to navigate. I've taken a few in-class photography courses but none of them were anywhere near as informative or as inspiring as this one.Thank you Sheye and Fran." - Lisa B

"I feel that the information regarding DSLR techniques was made very accessible to those of us who are enthusiastic, but a bit overwhelmed by all the options on their camera. The forum was easy to navigate and I learned a lot from reading all the critiques. The workshop gave me some great ideas, fed my enthusiasm, and introduced me to some fantastic people." - Cathryn R

"I loved how easy it was to understand the notes. Learning about manual mode on my camera seemed so daunting, and I was pleasantly surprised how easily it came to me - THANK YOU!" - Sally B

"I loved how interactive this workshop has been with the forum. All modules and 101 is very well explained and easy to follow. I have gained more knowledge with my camera in this 4 weeks than the 12 months I have owned it." - Angie B
