Great, intro class to learn the basics of the camera. You will need to take the next class to learn about shooting and getting that great picture.

Very informative and well structured class. Mark answered all my questions and spent time to make sure I understood all of the terms and procedures necessary to take better pics

Wasn't really a class. It was promotional for you to take the next class. He said he doesn't get enough money to actually teach the class because he has to give so much of it to Groupon. It was in a horrible area inside a storage facility. Don't waste your time or money.
