As an eager but very amateur photographer, I’ve attended all sorts of photography classes and talks, with little improvement to show for it. Then I stumbled upon a teaching method and classroom setting perfect for me – a “photo safari” with an extraordinary teacher and a small class of enthusiasts in a stunning garden-like setting. Unlike most classes, it was very hands-on, and FUN.
Especially helpful was that we could immediately try things that teacher David Luria suggested and get his immediate feedback on the results, thanks to the viewing capabilities of digital cameras. He spotted the incorrect setting on my camera’s function wheel and fixed it immediately, with an explanation.
