    This as a great workshop. Having time to share photos and spend time with Serephina in her studio was a nice combination of taking photos and learning new techniques. I loved walking around Capatola, great buildings and lots of activity. The Land of Medicine Buddha was wonderful, so much to see and photograph this is a must return place. Thanks Serephina!

    Great weekend! Seraphina is a terrific teacher, very patient and knowledgeable. I'm definitely feeling more comfortable with my camera now. For me, the highlight was Land of Medicine Buddha - what a gorgeous spot. I'm already thinking about going back. :)

    Thanks so much, Seraphina!

    You say lunches are to be 'no host' in the studio. Does that mean we need to bring our lunches or are there places to get lunch nearby?
