Great great class, Andre! I loved watching you take photos on the busy streets - you really have no fear, which is something I'm working on. Your advice to just follow your intuition and take the shot/deal with if someone gets mad later is just what I needed to hear. Can't wait to start your next course on film developing :)
Awesome class!
Andre is a great instructor..
