I though it was good. I like that I learned that it is easier to size images for submission in LR and add watermarks vs PS. Charlies personality was great.

I absolutely loved it. Charlie was a very good communicator, that clearly came to the Meetup with a few goals in mind. The location was great, I appreciated all the comments and suggestions that Charlie made. Also, sometimes when hosting an event, you may have a group that is a little on the quiet/shy side. Charlie was great with knowing when to jump in himself and get it rolling.

I was very pleased with this event. I felt so much better about how to use my camera and take photographs without feeling so frustrated. Charlie was really great! Very informative & helpful! He even showed me a few tricks with my camera I had no idea about.

Excellent! Jay , the instructor is very knowledgable. I was thinking 3 hours is a long class, but the time flew by. I could hardly believe it was over. For the first time in my life I shot in manual mode. My confidence is higher now and while I'm a beginner and have a lot to learn, I feel less intimidated by my camera. Thank you, Jay!
