- I've had 1 photography lesson with Malinda so far, focusing on lighting, especially Malinda's favorite function -- exposure compensation. When you figure it out, you can finally take photos like this one of John the Lion at Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. I'm proud of this one and grateful for an awesome teacher. ❤️ [caption id="attachment_11305" align="aligncenter" width="267"] straight out of camera adjusting exposure[/caption]
- A friend of mine and I just finished our first photography lesson with Malinda and it was fantastic. She was patient, kind and so full of knowledge and simple instructions. I was so intimidated prior to this and now I have the confidence to go out and take some great pictures. Malinda’s handouts and presentation blended with hands on experience is the perfect combination. I highly recommend this company and look forward to leaning more from them in the future.
- Highly recommend classes to anyone! Malinda is a great teacher. She is super sweet and friendly. She shares her knowledge of 25 years experience and gives you useful information that will impact your photos. I learned so much in just one class and look forward to our next class.Also like to thank our most beautiful model Laney!
- I learned so much in my one-on-one lesson with Malinda. I am a complete beginner and after just two hours I felt like I learned so much and was much more comfortable with my camera. She was very friendly, patient and of course knowledgeable. I highly recommend her.
- I recently completed two 1-1 lessons with Malinda, and they were great! After the first lesson, I already felt much more confident with my camera and took better pictures. After the 2nd, I felt like I knew even more and knew how to put a few finishing touches through editing. It was great meeting on-locatio
n and taking photos with her, using the skills as we were talking about them. I'd recommend her!
Malinda Hartong is one of the most thoughtful, kind hearted and intelligent photographers that i have ever met.
Camp really helped me understand my camera more. I took some great pictures and and can’t wait to take more. Teen Summer Camp at Sharon Woods
I loved learning about how to change my ISO settings. Also I liked being able to take pictures of animals.
- I am a beginner at photography but I will tell you on my very first one on one lesson with Melinda I learned so much. She taught me more on the first lesson then I could have imagined! She was so nice and helpful. I feel confident at I will be able to take the photos I want when I am done with my lessons! I would highly recommend ! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Working with Hartong Digital for some photography lessons was amazing. Within the first few minutes, I had already started taking better pictures. Malinda has this down to a science and after a few tweaks here and there, your pictures are professional grade. I enjoyed the time with her, she's funny, easy going, and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend investing with Hartong, you will get the best.
