Lesson 7. Artful Presentation

"I like the fact that the first lessons give you an idea of what to do before embarking on your travel. The instructor gives you ideas on how to build a photograph without making it look like a typical snapshot. The whole setting of the class is in a relaxed state giving you a chance to reflect on what's being presented."
