Comments to “Ken Ross”

  1. Ken is aaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwesome!! Answered every question, I learned a bunch of information. Ken made me feel waaaaaaayyyy more comfortable with using my camera. I had so much fun leaning and applying everything I learned in the field. All of the things that I have been studying on my own Ken just helped me bring everything full circle. Breath of fresh air!

  2. Ken:

    Thoroughly enjoyed the class and like the idea of the companion class–the camera is still going to intimidate for a bit so working in a “shoot_then_see_what_happened” teaching moment would be nice.

    I have my camera with me at work today–even with the rain (wrapped in plastic bags!)–so am beginning the good habit.

    And am eyeing lens hoods but you know how they never make it easy.

    I walked through Piedmont Park on the way home so you may well be right that the everyday of the city is not so dangerous as its lesser moments!

    Will expect to be meeting again at another class–if not March, perhaps later. Thank you again for all the tips and instruction.

  3. Ken,
    Thank you so very much for a phenomenal class! It was so enjoyable and extremely informative! You have ignited a photography fire in me! Your teaching style is truly remarkable.

    Our aligned interests made the class that much more enjoyable. I’m looking forward to DragonCon! Thank you for sending that AMAZING photo at Oakland Cemetery as well!

    I can’t wait for our next session – which I will be booking asap. I’ll have my “homework” with me of photos I’ve taken so you can critique them ☺️.

  4. I apologize for the delayed response to your last email. The week of Thanksgiving also brought a challenge with my dad who ended up in the hospital with pneumonia. He’s doing much better now and I’m catching up with everyone.

    Thank you for the time you allowed me that day! I learned a great deal over the few hours we spent together, your expertise was very enlightening. And I appreciate the info on the tripod and grip, I will definitely look into it! I would love the opportunity to sit with you again in the near future. I would be happy to pay for another 2 hours. Let me know what works best for you.

  5. Thank you, I really enjoyed my time and thank you again for everything you went over with me. I really appreciate your patience and kindness with all my questions

  7. “Wow, Ken, I’m very grateful for the good feedback you sent me on my photos. I never expected you to take the time to tweak them or comment on each one. Thanks so much for the time you invested in our class and for these very helpful suggestions with examples! This is awesome. I’m not confident using brushes in LR, but I will definitely work to that end, now that I have seen the improvements that you applied with brushes. I’ll be researching more about how to apply these effects and then work at practicing in LR.

    AGAIN, many thanks!”

  8. “Hi Ken,

    Great to hear from you, and thanks for the class! I had a good time, and I’ve attached my favorite shots. Any feedback you have would be much appreciated!



  9. “I attended a class with photographer Ken Ross a few weeks ago. Ken was a fantastic teacher. We were on location at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. While there, Ken explained depth of field, f stop, aperture, etc. He took time with each student answering all questions, no matter how entry level, with a positive gracious attitude. He was very informative and I thoroughly enjoyed his class. He pushed us to think beyond the norm, and to develop our eye as photographers. He gave us new ways to look at the subject, and helped us expand our creativity. I look forward to taking more classes with Ken in the future.”

  10. “I attended Ken’s composition in the field class on a cold Saturday at the Botanical Gardens here in Atlanta. Ken was there ready to go despite the weather and stayed until he had answered all questions from the students. I have been working on shooting manual instead of automatic and he really helped with tips on the best way to do that.”

    Thanks for the help Ken,

    -Greg McFarland

  11. “It was a great experience with you during photography session held on last Sunday in Little Five Points. I got a good amount of tips and tricks during the session.

    As we were discussing about photography community in Atlanta meets every month, Can you please provide details and venue of those. I would like to participate and wanted to more into the photography to improve my photography skills.

    Once again thanks for you session and everything!!”

  12. “Nice shots! Thanks for a great workshop in the garden. I enjoyed meeting everyone and I certainly learned much during the three hours.

    I’ve also attached a couple of shots from the session, both very similar in nature to Ken’s. I’d love to hear your thoughts.”

    – Ken Masters

  13. “Great class – presented by a very professional instructor, Ken Ross his name… Learned something? Yes I did…. Weather – very good….. Did I get good photos? Yes I did….Look forward to classes – January and/or February..”

    – J. Gary

  14. “I just wanted to sincerely thank you for the amazing class on this past Saturday at Piedmont Park. I really enjoyed it,and learned a lot of useful techniques for composition and also plenty about my very own camera. It’s amazing the things you ‘think’ you know until you ACTUALLY know.

    I should add that I do plan to join the photog club you gave us info on, and also plan to take another class with (you) DPA in the near future. I’m still quite amateur in the field of photography but aspire to be great one day so I want to soak in as much information and get as much practice as I possibly can. Thanks so much, again! We’ll certainly be in touch.”
