The class is great and was easy to follow along. It is really simple and a great start for beginners like me. David also did a great job at breaking things down and highlighting the essentials.
Really enjoyed this class! David explains everything clearly, it moves along at a good pace and I finished the course confident that I would be able to give dark botanical photography a go.
