For beginners wanting to learn more about macro photography this was a good event. This event was not that for me. I?m an experienced photographer and joined this event as a meetup opportunity to meet other photographers and talk photography and more specifically macro.

Michelle was very good at explaining the basics of photography, what all the various factors do, and how to combine them to get better pictures. Exactly as advertised and what I needed to get off "automatic" settings.

It was fantastic. Michelle was very knowledge and flexible with the course content. And I was very appreciative that she answered every question we had. I learned a ton!
The flexibility was great. Michelle had a core outline that she followed, but she paid attention to what we were interested in, and she answered all questions in depth and had good knowledge of all the subjects she covered.
5/5 by Thomas Sullivan
The class was great - it had a nice balance of theory vs practice. Michelle was an excellent presenter and did a good job integrating a variety of photographic subjects and styles. I was already familiar with most of the main content of the course but was impressed how Michelle was able to present the material in a way that solidified the concepts for me in terms of practice.
