Basic Photography

Before RMSP’s Basic Photography workshop, I was strictly a point and shoot photographer. After studying the RMSP website I decided to enroll, but I was concerned. I wasn’t sure if I had it in me. The basics of manual shooting - aperture, shutter speed, ISO – it all sounded kind of daunting.

The instructor Doug and his assistant Jen were great!  My classmates were a wonderful diverse group.  I learned so much and had so much fun that if I could have, I would have stayed another week!  The structure of the workshop was perfect with a great balance of classroom time, shooting and critiquing.  I truly enjoyed it and feel as if I am at a new level. I now enjoy photography more than ever and I want to learn more! The class was very much worth the time and money and I am looking forward to future RMSP experiences.
