Janet & Les, The workshop was the best workshop that I have ever attended. In the field, I asked both of you questions and both of you were ready, willing and able to answer them. I got the best sunrise shots that I have ever taken and learned about correcting the texture in waterfall shots and even how to swirl abstract photos. What it amounts to is I learned an awfully lot and enjoyed every day with you.

- Gary C.

Thanks for the inspiring macro workshop!

…It was a great mix of fieldwork, concepts, and technique, and I really felt enriched by the experience.  I found the critique sessions very helpful….You struck the delicate balance between being encouraging and pushing for improvement. I look forward to studying with you more.
