So You Just Got a DSLR Camera! Now What?

Aloha Stephen,

Thanks so much for the outstanding class!!!  I had so many A-HA! moments and will definitely be using what we learned today and practicing the settings to prepare for the next class.  I’m not sure if I’m on the newsletter list, but if not, please add me.  I’ll stay in touch about scheduling another class.

Again, mahalo!!!

Hi Stephen,

This is Debbie from today’s class. (I was the one in the green hoodie that kept asking about the settings for the fireworks shots 😉

I just want to say thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart. You were a perfect instructor & as I told my husband, I swear you customized that class just for me, as if I was the only one there. I went in w/expectations that I’d have to take you to the side & show me a few things, but you answered everyone of my questions & then some. I can’t express how happy I am & how much I learned. I’m now super excited to start playing w/my camera in a new found manner. After I practice my new found knowledge & become familiar w/it, I believe I’ll take the next few classes.

Thanks again & keep up the great work!!! 

Your fan, 

Debbie Kohn-Lee
