Clear, inspiring instruction on how to take control of room lighting and get creative effects by changing all sorts of variables. We really gain from Renee's experience here!
Renee's work is awesome and her teaching style is easy to follow.
I'm on lesson 5, which is really early into the class. However, I think I'm already learning a lot from Renee.
