"Very helpful and informative! I like Anthony's easy teaching style. He's easy to follow and gives good tips for working with sometimes not-so-cooperative subjects. I feel like I've learned a lot and right now, I'm only using my phone for a camera! I can't wait to translate what I'm learning to a DSLR."
