    Sure enjoyed first photowalk with Jeff Johnson downtown today! Jeff did a great job explaining concepts that I will be experimenting with next time I go out! Learned some important basics and how cool it can be to think outside the box when taking photos!

    Jeff is a very good teacher, he's approachable and has a sense of humor. I enjoyed his photowalk and hearing about the variety of methods to get outstanding composition.

    Great information on seeing the environment using the composition guidelines Jeff shared with us. It really makes you look at your subject matter with an eye at composing a picture/memory/art instead of just a "snapshot".

    A bummer!! I missed Jeff's last outing due to gout in my toe. And now will miss this outing because I'll be down in the San Juans shooting. Guess I should be content that I'll miss out this time due to shooting rather than the gout! :-))))
