Comments to “Tucson”

  1. “Each class I’ve been to has been helpful, so keep up the good work. ”

    -Sherry Van Camp

  2. “By the way, it was a great class, really valued spending time with Martha. She was an excellent communicator and talented pro!”


  3. “Hi Chris
    here is a big thank you for a really good, relaxed, learning experience. your
    professional knowledge and love of the craft really transmitted itself to all of
    the group. and of course, we learn from each other.

    metering in the camera was always a mystery for me. and i now understand how to use the
    metering function of my camera, a real boost. i had relied on bracketing which only affects
    ISO and EV. metering in the camera will allow me to set both aperture and shutter speed
    to a creative mode.

    i am inclosing in this email, the photos you took with my camera which show
    me how to frame with this ultra wide lens. and one that i took of the group.”


  4. “The class with Martha was terrific. The one on one time was perfect and the group composition class was equally valuable.

    Now I just need to apply what I have learned.

    “I enjoyed the class. We’re in the throes of finals and completing school so I will get back to this next week. Great attachment! I can use this in Yearbook class, can’t I?”

    “Thank you for a very enjoyable class yesterday morning. As I told you then, although most of the info served as a refresher, it was great to be out for the sole purpose of shooting photos. Normally, I am a tourist, with my wife and me trying to see things for the first time.

    Being able to just concentrate on the camera and shot was a lot of fun and helpful. That, of course, can have its drawbacks. I hadn’t played with the ISO rating in a while, wasn’t thinking, and set it to 800 for most of the shoot yesterday. I still got some good shots (I included that one of the rose you shaded for me).”

    -Student Greg Goldman

  7. “I just attended a beginners class on July 28 in Phoenix taught by Dave Sanders. I enjoyed the class a great deal. Actually, I enjoyed the class so much that on the way home, I purchased the Panasonic TZ3 and the Photoshop Elements that were discussed in the class. I would appreciate any printed information that I could get. Thank you!”

    – Bonnie Rosenberg

It is always fun to pick up new techniques, I really liked the shooting from shade with fill flash technique to darken the background. Thanks again, I enjoyed the day!”

    – David Seay

  15. “Just wanted to thank you again for a great workshop on Sunday. You imparted some really helpful photography tips to me, which should aid me greatly in future photo endeavors, and beside this, I truly enjoyed interacting with you & the others. It was a fun day. Besides being such a knowledgeable photographer, you are also an excellent, non-intimidating teacher that is easy to be with. Keep up the good work!”

    – Elizabeth Hershkowitz
