Great teacher! Very knowledgeable!

Comments about Gale Zucker:
Gale was informative, very knowledgeable, and very good at getting information across to her students. The class was an excellent mix of technical information (for the people that had the techie mindsets) and concrete tips and tricks (for those of us that weren't quite so… techie *grin*). She was very well-prepared with handouts and a very nice visual presentation. We had lots of hands-on time with our cameras, and WEBS provided a great outdoor space with a variety of lighting situations for us to try.
The students had a nice mix of higher-end cameras down to the point-and-shoot cameras, and Gale helped us get the best out whatever camera we had.
I highly recommend taking a class from Gale Zucker!
