    It was a wonderful experience meeting great people and learning from them and acquiring skills from experts. I will greatly put what I learned into good use. Ben has helped me a lot, particularly with camera settings. Through his patience and his careful explaining, my camera skills improved a lot. He patiently listened and then explained the topics over and over again, and he made sure I understood it (aperture, shutter speed, ISO). It was my third class with Ben, he is indeed a great teacher and a great photographer too!
