WHAT PREVIOUS STUDENTS HAVE SAID:

“I would say this course is a good compliment to B&W photography course, as one leads to another. If you are a photographer you MUST join this course and learn where it all started (if you didn’t yet).

You will expand your vision of creativity and sense of hand-making crafts/photos by playing with different materials that you wouldn’t think of! not with Photoshop. Put your pics on acetate paper and give your digital pictures a new and unique life!”
