     This is always an excellent meetup, no doubt about it. I missed quite a few classes in the past two years due to family matters. Will catch up in the future. Great to see our organizer getting younger and stay energized.

The instruction is well organized and presented clearly. There are plenty of helpful members and the meetup location is refreshing. Be prepared, bring your camera, and you may be surprised at the memories you're capable of creating. There are plenty of photo opportunities around the campus. Don, thanks to you and all of the individuals that make theses classes available.

    Chuck M. on Aug 11, 2012.

  • Photography Basics Class

     I definitely think there could have been a bit more organization on the actually "picture taking" component. I know Rebecca divided us into three groups, but a lot of us didn't pay attention, so it was difficult to really get the space and time to take good pictures unless you were literally on top of other people.
