    I am looking for a digital photo class as I am now teaching a class of photography in a high school. I took photography in 1986 and do not remember much of it. I need to find some courses to help me refresh my lack of memory on it as well as learn Digital and Lightroom. Hopefully your all have some options in your programs. I am in Prince Frederick MD and can travel to DC area during the summer.
    Please send me an email with courses and prices if possible.Thank you, Christy Sams

    Thank you for the quiz. I appreciate knowing what I could study to increase my knowledge. I found that a few items I have the practical understanding, but not the written. Knowing this will allows me to improve the written knowledge so that I may speak with increased accuracy.

    Dear Sam,
    Debby Shipler recommended I take your course, and I just signed for one starting in April.
    I would really appreciate your feedback on this, and look forward to learning from you.

    Please change the answer to #1 to the first option – I was about to do that when I timed out of the test.

    We spoke on the phone about the Friday Intermediate daytime class. I am the one who has taken 2 of your short classes – one on exposure, and one on white balance. I am planning on registering for the class. I would appreciate it if you would contact me regarding the results of the test.

    Thanks –

    Hi,

    I’ve been shooting for nearly 10-years on and off and love capturing weddings and events, with a dash of portraits. I am most interested in better manipulating studio light and working on my composition. Hopefully composition and enhancing my eye are skills you can help me with.

  7. Hi

    I’d like to improve my skill in all phases of light from ambient to off camera multi speed light and studio strobes, high speed sync. Hopefully composition and artistry can also be taught

    My last formal photography instruction was many years ago in college, well before digital was commonly available — a solid b&w photo/darkroom class taught by a seasoned pro. I was also trained as a filmmaker, so I understand exposure and composition, and my work isn’t too bad… simply would like it to be better. I scored a little shy of your requisite 80% on the test, mainly on the technical terminology and digital q’s, but I believe I would keep up in your Intermediate class — the Basics class is TOO basic. Can I register for the Intermediate class, or would you Ike me to study some other sources in order to get the “fuzzy” areas a bit clearer?

    • Jim,

      Please do not register for the Intermediate class.

      Can you please give a call at 202-531-2344?

      I’d like to speak with you so we can determine how to proceed.

      Sam

      Thank you.
