    Thank you so much for your personalized attention and patience with my developing photography skills. That was a great class and I walked away with a much better sense of my camera and the functions. It was wonderful to walk around and spend time with you. Clearly, you are an exceptionally gifted instructor and photographer. Please count me in on your next class. ”

    “Jenn was an awesome teacher!
    She explained the “feared’ manual setting better than a camera retail store which sold three classes that were 2 hours long a piece.
    I think taking pics, making a mistake and saying “Ok, what the?” and having her there to ask about the error was great.’ Thank you very much.It was a great experience. No longer on Program Mode…hahaha”
