    Wonderful Instructor Vanessa for the Intro to Film Photography

    It’s rare that you get an instructor who genuinely wants you to ask questions, and listens astutely when a student is inquiring. I can image what may be an otherwise tedious introduction into photography, Vanessa made the class interesting and all types of learners were able to pay attention. The courses were well thought out and structured, the assignments were challenging and helped us look at all facets of shooting, that we may have otherwise not practiced. I think we all learned so much more than we could have if we just followed YouTube searches or TikTok tutorials. With analog, it did seem truly beneficial to discuss with peers and have a knowledgable (and patient) teacher. Will be looking forward to Film Photography II with Vanessa!
