“I learned a lot in the class and it improved both the taking and the developing of the photos on my iPhone. I particularly enjoyed trying out many different ‘photo finishing’ apps–ones to improve exposure or add drama to an image. Holly’s clear instructions and examples helped me learn how to use each app alone as well as in concert. I am getting a lot of compliments on my photos after taking her class.”
“Life got really crazy at the end of the class you taught about iPhone Photography and I didn’t get a chance to thank you for a great class. I now enjoy my iPhone camera a lot more with all the new apps you taught us about.”
– Jeanette
“Thanks very much for the course. It opened up a totally new area of photography. When I initially tried the native camera app on my iPhone 4 a few years back, I was really disappointed I couldn’t get the results I wanted. Learning about Camera+ and editing apps changed everything for me. 4 weeks ago, I never thought I’d enjoy iPhonography this much. Thanks again for this wonderful course. All the best from Scotland,”
– Philippe
“Hi, I took your iPhone Photography class… I have to say that class was awesome. I have been shooting, lets call it event photography with my phone at our local bars shooting our favorite local bands. Everyone loves the images I have been getting and I was even asked to display some at our local Art Show. Thank you again for this class!!!! I hope you teach another one, maybe part two.”
