    Jennifer shared her great wealth of experience and gave good tips for shooting great pictures. I am encouraged that she focuses on composition in the camera and minimizes post-production time.

    Aside from wonderful pictures and practical tips, Jennifer was full of enthusiasm, so infectious in fact that I plan a trip to the Catskills, assuming that it is the closest place in the Metropolitan area where one can see stars at night.

    The presentation, as said eloquently by many below, was well organized, entertaining, and educational. Jennifer provided a wealth of information and beautiful photographs. My best take away message was on the Hyperfocal Focusing, and how to shoot with wide angle lens to get near to far focus. I was able to print her chart from her blog. Hope to take one of her workshops in the future. Thanks to Adventures in Photography for arranging this. My first time with this group.

    Excellent morning. Jennifer had lots of information to share with both beginners and experienced photographers, plus loads of great images to illustrate her points. The presentation was logical, entertaining and fast-paced. There were many questions and Jennifer handled them skillfully and directly. I can't wait to get out in the field and try some of her landscape photography tips.

    She was very good. However I found it diffacult to take any notes cause she went too fast in changing her slides.
    She's very personable, knowledgeable and willing to share her knowledge.

    Too bad the venue was changed as the original location was 10 mins from me. But I still plan to be there.

    August 8, 2013

    • Martin J.

      Hi Annette, Sorry but the move made sense for the bulk of the people attending. The drive there is mostly on good major roads and shouldn't take you more that 20 to 25 minutes.

      August 9, 2013

  • Annette

    Hope to attend...but I may have to be at a work symposium.

    July 12, 2013

  • Diane R.

    I always Enjoy these presentations. Looking forward to it!

    July 11, 2013

  • Tracy

    Can you tell me where in the mall the presentation will take place? I've only been there once and it's huge.

    July 1, 2013

    • Martin J.

      Tracy, Park right near Macys, enter the mall and take the elevator or escalator up to the 4th floor. When you get off the elevator, you will be able to see either end. Walk towards the Hockey Ice Rink. Just before you get to the rink, the Adler room will be on your right hand side.

      July 1, 2013

    • Tracy

      Thank you so much. I would have been lost for sure.

      July 2, 2013

  • Eric G.

    Sounds like another great program I will check my schedule to make sure that Saturday is open.

    June 15, 2013

  • Jay G.

    Would really like to attend...but my daughter is scheduled to givebirth the day after so timing is tough. If it is still to be scheduled maybe I can enroll at the last minute.

    I saw this program in CT (it was free so that was even better!) and really enjoyed it. Unlike with some speakers, I never looked at my watch as she entertained us with beautiful images and lots of technical advice.

    I'm there!
