So I took this more as a review course (I got 50% off when I added it to my other course, so why not), but I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did I get a nice refresher on the basics of the trade, but I also felt like the instructor really supported internal drive and motivation as it ties to being a photographer. It's something I really appreciated because the winter months were pretty dry business wise and I needed a reset.
