    “Wow, Ken, I’m very grateful for the good feedback you sent me on my photos. I never expected you to take the time to tweak them or comment on each one. Thanks so much for the time you invested in our class and for these very helpful suggestions with examples! This is awesome. I’m not confident using brushes in LR, but I will definitely work to that end, now that I have seen the improvements that you applied with brushes. I’ll be researching more about how to apply these effects and then work at practicing in LR.

    AGAIN, many thanks!”

    “Hello Elton,

    Thank you so much for your time and instruction yesterday. Thank you also for braving the cold weather. I learned a lot that can be used for better photography. SPS will be visited after the holidays. I think there’s a lot that can be learned and hopefully, I have something to be shared with other photographers.

    I seem to have gravitated mostly toward the leading lines and rule of thirds. An ND filter will be applied to see if the ghosts can be “run off” on the low light/longer exposures. That tip is greatly appreciated.

    Have a safe and enjoyable holiday season.”

    “I attended a class with photographer Ken Ross a few weeks ago. Ken was a fantastic teacher. We were on location at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. While there, Ken explained depth of field, f stop, aperture, etc. He took time with each student answering all questions, no matter how entry level, with a positive gracious attitude. He was very informative and I thoroughly enjoyed his class. He pushed us to think beyond the norm, and to develop our eye as photographers. He gave us new ways to look at the subject, and helped us expand our creativity. I look forward to taking more classes with Ken in the future.”

    “Just a quick note to let you and others know what a great experience I had today during Stan’s photographic tutorial. I received 3 hours of 1:1 instruction from the functions of my camera and how to apply them in various compositions, settings and environments to tips and best practices of photography.

    Stan took the time and attention to instruct based on my level of experience with the art as well as my familiarity of the equipment. I learned more in 3 hours than I have since purchasing my camera.

    Thanks to Stan and Digital Photo Academy—I would recommend to anyone.”

    “I attended Ken’s composition in the field class on a cold Saturday at the Botanical Gardens here in Atlanta. Ken was there ready to go despite the weather and stayed until he had answered all questions from the students. I have been working on shooting manual instead of automatic and he really helped with tips on the best way to do that.”

    Thanks for the help Ken,

    As we were discussing about photography community in Atlanta meets every month, Can you please provide details and venue of those. I would like to participate and wanted to more into the photography to improve my photography skills.

    Once again thanks for you session and everything!!”

    I’ve also attached a couple of shots from the session, both very similar in nature to Ken’s. I’d love to hear your thoughts.”

    “I just wanted to sincerely thank you for the amazing class on this past Saturday at Piedmont Park. I really enjoyed it,and learned a lot of useful techniques for composition and also plenty about my very own camera. It’s amazing the things you ‘think’ you know until you ACTUALLY know.

    I should add that I do plan to join the photog club you gave us info on, and also plan to take another class with (you) DPA in the near future. I’m still quite amateur in the field of photography but aspire to be great one day so I want to soak in as much information and get as much practice as I possibly can. Thanks so much, again! We’ll certainly be in touch.”

    “I learned a lot on Sunday! And there’s still a ton more to learn, and to practice!

    I met up with a friend afterward for lunch and took a few photos of him, and some art on the walls. He then posted that photo to Facebook and got over 100 “likes,” which he had never gotten that many “likes” before. It made me feel good!

    Hope you’re having a GREAT week!”

Your enthusiasm is contagious, your patience appreciated and your willingness to spend time with each of us individually made this whole experience an enjoyable and learning one. White balance?

    “Thanks again for a great class yesterday. I take a lot of training classes being in the technology business and your teaching style coupled with your knowledge and love of the subject makes you one of the best instructors I’ve had the pleasure of learning from.

    I look forward to seeing you soon in a Field Composition class.

    Take care and safe travels”

    “Thank you so much, Jen! Hope to see you again, also, at one of your scheduled photo shoots! I was outside in the front yard yesterday about 4 p.m., using as much as I could remember (unfortunately, my notes were inside) from our class last Saturday…just taking lots of pictures of our new, little dogwood and serviceberry trees and a much larger, older dogwood (especially close-ups of its beautiful flowers), and our flowering pink azaleas…trying different settings, angles, etc. I think that most of them turned out well. I need to look at them online to know for sure, but I was very enthusiastic about taking the pictures and happy about almost all of them!

    Jen, thank you for everything you have shared with me and taught me! You are the finest of teachers, EVER!

    Take good care.”

    “Hi Jenn – I wanted to thank you again for such an awesome class on Saturday. I learned a ton. I was trying to tell my husband the one thing that I learned that was most impactful, and I couldn’t come up with just one! I am going to shoot “M” from now on and I hope I get to learn from you again someday. You are an awesome instructor; felt like the class was 1 on 1. Thanks again!”

    I am interested in a more classes to work on taking pictures of moving objects, given my goal of taking pictures on safari in Africa in January. What class would you suggest?

    I bought the class through Living Social. It was a great deal.”

    “This class photo of my Intermediate group last week shows the true diversity DPA has been getting with every class: 14-year olds and 70-year olds learning together, people of all backgrounds. I’ve had teachers, doctors, high-school students, fast-food clerks, retirees. Not many places brings together such diversity!”

    “Wanted to report that the zoo is an amazing place for an Advanced class — the small group yesterday had a really exciting time shooting the animals, and it was almost like a seminar on travel photography. I photographed the group as well, which was notable because the two older gentlemen are both retired doctors from Albany, Georgia (deep south Georgia, almost Florida) who drove 2.5 hours to attend class, involving a hotel stay. Just like the nurses who drove from North Georgia recently, their work is very good and they would be worth profiling for making such an effort to attend a DPA class. Thanks to all students for making the class such a success!”

    “Perhaps you remember Candace Clayton, one of the three Georgia nurses who attended class together that you profiled on the website. Candace came to the Advanced class yesterday and took some great photos. We met at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield, where the U.S. Park Service hires actors to dress in period clothing and reenact Civil War life. The students spent about an hour photographing the actors, and then I showed them how to process the images digitally to look like 19th century Calotypes. The students were really excited by the exercise.”

    “The session I attended was this past Sunday and after talking to me and the other person who was scheduled to attend, Joel did switch the workshop to a “regular” advanced class and we both appreciated it. It was a great class, Joel was wonderful and I would definitely recommend it to others. I’ll be looking to take others through DPA in the future. And yes, as you mention, with some advance notice I would definitely be interested in a family photo class when the new baby arrives! Thanks for the follow up!”
