The class was very good on Saturday. William helped me and the folks in attendance learn about positioning photos, the thirds rules, leading lines, etc. he did a very effective job as I am somewhat experienced and he was able to convey his message clearly to newer folks and those of us with DSLR cameras.
Thank you for this class. Marquis really enjoyed Mr. William and said that he was really funny. Marquis said he learned a lot about his camera and how to take better pictures. Thank you again.
This class was very informative and our instructor William was amazing. I purchased a camera in December and wanted an affordable, in person class to learn to take better pictures and this class was just that. I will definitely sign up for another class.
“Hi!!! It was a fun day ,thank you”
“We had a good day at the park in Dallas.
William Morton was informative, patient, and courteous.
Attached are a few of my photos from the day.”
Thank you so much for an informative afternoon. Having the instant feedback to shots was very helpful. Gave me some food for thought and areas to exercise and experiment on. Also really enjoyed flipping thru the album you posted from yesterday. Seeing the very same things but thru your eyes and lens was interesting and provided several ah-ha moments. Particularly not to be afraid of shooting what otherwise seems mundane. With the right angle and light, magic happens. I need to review my pics further and cull out one or two to post. I have so much to learn!”

“Thank you so much for the wonderful class on Saturday. I feel like I can confidently tinker with the camera now. Now I just need to tinker in a more meaningful way. The class was exactly what I was looking for and you taught it very well.”
“I recently took your photo composition class in Balboa Park, which I enjoyed very much. Thank you! I hope to be back for another class soon.”
