Street Photography class in Alton - Thomas Tourney shared many useful tips on composition and approaching people on the street. There were 3 of us taking the class and there was plenty of attention given to our questions. He also shared many technical tips such as lighting (fill flash) and post processing that helped me feel better about the struggles I have with both. My confidence as an average amateur photog went up after this class.

Aaron Cooke is an excellent teacher. He is very knowledgeable and explains concepts very well. He was gracious with his time, allowing us to ask many questions and addressing all of them with explanations, photos and shooting opportunities. I look forward to taking more classes with him.

Very informative. I've read how to do long exposure photography but never went out and did it myself. Was fun to do it in the company of others and with an expert teacher.
