    Good practice, knowledgeable and passionate teaching, lots of suggestions on how to improve
    The class was well organized and packed with the practical information I was looking for.
    It was fantastic! Had a great time walking through downtown Little Rock and seeing how others view things. I learned quite a bit.

    very useful. I learned a lot. Thanks Ken.
    Great class - Ken was friendly and knowledgeable.
    The beginner meetup was well worth it. Having the opportunity to learn the concepts and then immediately put them into practice, as well as honest criticism and personalized advice from a pro is something you certainly can't get from YouTube. Ken has a great teaching style and is super approachable for those like myself who are breaking into the hobby. Also just a fun dude to be around. 10/10 would recommend.

    This class was great! I really appreciated the individualized camera support received. I loved the small group, the location and timing. Ken was so knowledgeable and kind. I would highly recommend this class to anyone.
    Had a wonderful hands on experience with Ken. He was very helpful and patient with explaining things to me. Can't wait to see what the other classes entail.
    It was a good time, learned some techniques from Ken.

    It was very informative and I learned a lot from ken. He's a very good instructor and the information is invaluable.
    I learned a lot during this lesson; it was an excellent value for the money. The instructor was very knowledgeable, and the small group size enabled him to spend a lot of time working with us individually. He introduced concepts effectively and customized parts of the lesson based on each student's interests. I feel much more confident working with my camera now than I did before attending.

    South Point is the Southernmost point of the Hawaiian Islands and the United States. Beautiful panoramic views provided the backdrop of this gold sunset. The sun was going down fast and, the battery in the camera was depleting fast as well. It showed at 1. While I had a spare battery in my pocket, I did not want to lose valuable 10 seconds changing it with a 200-6000mm lens hung around my neck. I was able to take about 8-9 series of sunset shots and this one was the last one, and the battery fi

    ?This past Father?s Day I went to a family farm cidery with my oldest daughter. The drinks were good, the company was great, but the best part was the farm?s commitment to keeping wild, native plants for pollinators. This little bee found a delicious clover and I got this macro shot.?

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
