Helpful class, but I'd appreciate it if we'd be able to see the actual pictures you're talking about.
Excellent class. It's clear and objective. I found it really helpful and inspiring.

Hi. My name is Ben and I'm a photographer based in Portland, Oregon. In another life I was a lawyer, in my best life I'm photographing every day. I shoot a wide range of subjects and topics, but focus my style on natural light, clean composition, and unique perspective. I've had a winding path, if you're interested in knowing more have a read here. Or say hello here.
