    Ready, aim, fire….or not

    This was a great class. Ann demonstrated how to get the most out of a photo. Take a photo that is ho-hum and make it wow, or decide to discard it…before spending hours on a drawing. I would like to do this again. I have photoshop elements. This has inspired me to learn how to use it.

    Wow! Great learning: Wealth of wisdom

    I appreciate the care and consideration that Ann demonstrated in her discussion of each photo. She presented many options: did not simply give one "solution" or recommendation. She contributed her knowledge and experience with great generosity and I learned from every single example. Like a master class.

    Good better best

    It was very interesting to have Ann's experienced perspective and kind positivity in comments about our reference photos. It might be nice to have a smaller group ( as I think she surmised) and time at the beginning and end to have a brief talk about composition and reference photo taking skills. Overall, we got a very personal experience from a bona fide CP rockstar so money well spent!!

    Great learning experience

    I learned a lot about choosing reference photos for drawing. Being able to see other people’s photos and then determine how they should be cropped, manipulated or even if they have the pizazz to become a worthwhile subject was enlightening. My only criticism is that the group size could have been smaller.
