Fabulous information and demonstration of each topic. Thank You!!!
This was the most practical, usable hints I’ve ever heard in any class – FANTASTIC 3 hours – it seemed like one hour.
Loved the slide shows – especially the early work was a great way to open the program.
The information was realistic! I feel I can take and use this information right away. Taking such an incredible/useful workshop will forever be a lifelong investment for me.
Thanks for a wonderful evening!
I was a total rookie yet love photography and learned A LOT!!! Now I can go have fun!
Your humor!! Your energy!! Your passion!! Michele, I loved this seminar. I can’t wait for your next one.
I liked seeing Michele’s early work. I liked that she showed it is a learning process to get to where she is.
What I enjoyed most about this program was the pace, thoroughness and clear explanations. Learning to understand evaluative metering. angles and triangles was also very helpful.
Michele is very entertaining and engaging. She made it very interesting. Humor and engaging the audience go a long way. Photographer can be impersonal but Michele took time at the break to meet and talk with people.
Michele did a great job explaining and demonstrating technical information which really brought it home. Plus it was lots of fun!
I loved the lesson on aperture and exposure compensation! Wonderful slide shows. Very informative and enjoyable seminar! Your inspire me to continue educating my passion.
Very energetic, not a dull moment. I’ve studied photography for 5 years and I really enjoyed the seminar.
My dear friend and colleague of 20 years. I am inspired and thrilled that you continue to bring a high level of professionalism to our craft. In this digital age many of today’s photographers have forgotten or have never been taught that “fixing it in post production” does not make a great photographer. Get it right in the camera and then use Photoshop to enhance, not to “fix” No matter how “smart” our cameras and computers get, absolutely nothing can replace the trained eye of a professional photographer. Photography is about human emotion, capturing our human condition, our memories and moments in time. Creating treasures that last a lifetime. I have had the privilege of working with Michele for most of my professional life, she is one of the most professional professionals that I know. You won’t even realize you are learning until you realize how much you have learned.
Being a professional photographer isn’t about your gear, it’s about the quality of your images. Anybody can get their first customer, but the challenge is being good enough to get your second or to have the first customer so happy with the experience, they come back again and again! Nobody teaches with more enthusiasm or a greater appreciation for image quality than Michele! Having the skill set to capture and create outstanding images is all about understanding the craft. Without a solid foundation in the understanding of photography, all the marketing and business sense in the world won’t help you build a career!
