    The "Hands-On Intro to Flash Photography" is a great workshop! I learned so much from and things that I was unsure of were cleared up in my mind with the explanations. I would recommend this to anyone interested in getting both hands on introduction to "flash" photography with lecture, as well as hands on photoshoots to suplement the covered material. I look forward to upcoming Bubble Wrap Studio workshops in the future. *Kudos* for a job well done ;)
