A great class! I love that it is around real tangible projects, cannot wait to try them out for myself. The class is well organized and well explained.

This class is great! It encourages me to try doing things right away. I was watching this during break at work and I just up and grabbed my camera and started moving things around. I'm inspired by her work and I'll definitely continue trying the assignments when I get home tonight.
