Kambua’s seven week into to portraiture course has been a ride – I feel so much more comfortable behind the camera while shooting a single subject, changing settings for the kind of lighting I am using, figuring out which sort of lighting set up would work best for the picture I am envisioning, using Lightroom (as well as other software available) to touch up/edit my photographs, AND learning tips and tricks of the trade! Kambua spends so much time in class giving great advice about the creative and the professional side of portrait photography. I would highly recommend this course!
Knowledge, Expertise, and Joy! These three words describe what Kambua gave me and my fellow classmates. Over seven weeks, my knowledge through the understanding of the technical and artistic aspects of portraiture grew well beyond my expectations. Kambua gave clear explanations of all aspects of capturing a subject’s portrait. Through classroom and in-studio shooting exercises with professional models, workshops, and shooting assignments along with positive and constructive critique of my assignments, I gained the expertise and confidence to achieve consistent professional results. Kambua’s effervesce made every aspect of this class joyful, fun and a great experience for learning with her sharing all aspects of becoming a professional photographer without sugarcoating. I finished this course inspired. Inspired to photograph more with joy!
