My friend and I attended [DSLR 101: Canon 60D] today at the store in Cambridge and were very impressed with the delivery and knowledge of our instructor. He was very patient with the 7 people attending and some of his first words were " No question is silly or stupid." There was a decent age range and we were all at different levels in camera usage. The instructor was so good that we left feeling comfortable with our camera and it's proper use. I would highly recommend this course to everyone who purchases the Canon 60D. It is well worth the cost of the course and like I said the instructor was fantastic.

I've been taking pictures for years wondering why some looked great while others didn't. I was looking for consistency through knowledge. In 3 hours I learned more than my years of hit and miss photography. I feel more confident now to travel and to take more consistent pictures that will tell a story, evoke memories and emotion. While I won't be procuring jobs as a photographer, I know now how I can take better, impressive pictures with my point & shoot. Thanks Robert, great class!
