what my students say…
– “I never got around to sending you a note saying how beneficial your class was for me. I’m just about to start really digging into to using everything I have learned. I loved the info and my fellow learners, including the dogs(!) I really knew nothing about shooting manually before your class, so many thanks to you.”
— “I loved this class. I learned a great deal about how to use my camera and how to make beautiful and compelling photographs. Beth made us feel like great and accomplished photojournalists.”
— “I have to tell you something. I LOVE YOUR CLASS! It’s the highlight of my week. In case you haven’t noticed already, I’m perched on your every word. As a teacher myself for the past 15 years, I appreciate your patience, your passion for your craft and your students, and your ability to take complex thoughts/concepts and break them down into ways that most people can understand. That’s a talent that most teachers don’t have.
— “Last night’s class, while intense and slightly overwhelming, was a true pleasure. They fact that you were able to answer my question of “how does the size of a hole make things more or less in focus?” was a huge relief for me. No one has been able to answer that question for me. If I’m asking to many questions, please tell me. I’ll understand and won’t be offended. I want to learn more and more. Unfortunately, the more I learn, the more questions I have. It’s a vicious cycle, I know. But, I’m very confident that you’ll be able to assist me in becoming the type of amateur photographer I want to me.
— “Great professor! She loves photojournalism and loves talking about it. Her relaxed nature has helped me feel free to communicate my ideas and concerns. She is great in providing feedback and help.”
— “Above everything else, thank you. Thank you, Beth, for having an open door policy with your students, for being confident and well-crafted, professional, empathetic and patient with your students. These are signs of a true, well-respected teacher.”
— “I have been struggling for many years to teach myself the art of photography. I spent countless hours in post-editing trying to manipulate my photos because I was not technically savvy enough to manually perform the functions in-camera. After just a few short months of one-on-one instruction with Beth Reynolds both my technical knowledge and vocabulary have increased dramatically and my portraits vividly reflect my progress. Beth has carefully tailored the curriculum to my wants and needs so that I may reach my personal goal. I am well on my way towards shedding my old skin as a fauxtographer and am settling quite comfortably into my new skin as a photographer! Thank you, Beth!”
I am so grateful to my students for the energy they put forth into learning. Thank you!
