What our attendees say about our BEYOND AUTO Workshop

  • A TON of information that was simplified so everyone could understand. I really enjoyed people sending pictures and then critiquing.
  • VERY informative! My brain was going to explode with all the new information. (she's kidding). Actually learning the features on my camera. I appreciate learning about iPhone too. (bonus). It was very helpful to go through all the photos and talk ISO, exposure, AV, etc.
  • Just finished Beyond Auto class.  I now use buttons I never dared touch before.  I highly recommend the class for anyone using their DSLR camera as a point and shoot.  It can do so much more if you learn how.
  • As a complete novice, I started with Beyond Auto.  Since then I've taken photo editing and six hours of private lessons.  I've learned so much and look forward to using what I've learned and participating on the photo walks.  Melinda also helped me understand the different types of lenses, filters, monopods, memory cards, etc...for the type of photography I intend to do.  Highly recommend for anyone wanting to learn or enhance your photography and/or editing skills.
  • I can not recommend Malinda and her class enough.  I was fortunate enough to get a great deal on a DSLR camera but didn't have the knowledge to know how to use it correctly.  After night one in her course I was able to successfully capture a picture of my son breaking a board in martial arts practice.  I now not only feel comfortable with my camera but I can change my settings and recognize the adjustments I need to make, in fact it's becoming second nature.  I learned so much and love having the incredible hand outs to refer back to as needed.  Thank you Malinda for being such a wonderful teacher.
  • I have taken 2 classes - both awesome. They make me want to get better and better using my iPhone and Nikon. Worth EVERY penny. Do yourself a favor and try a class out. Malinda is so helpful and she gives you the knowledge and confidence that even us mere mortals can take some awesome shots using settings you never thought you could conquer!
