from Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia (2010):
Of all the places I
visited and the opportunities I had to see and be involved
with photography during my three months in Europe the day I
spent with “ Paris Set Me Free” was a major highlight.
In particular I
liked the chance to go to places that were not frequented by
tourists and of more importance the chance to take images
similar to my preferred style. Sab had done his “homework”
prior to the lesson to understand my image genre.
I could not have wished for anything more and even thought
later that I should have extended my time in Paris and done
a further tour.
I also liked how Sab
was able to give hints and suggestions and showed his
images, that way you could determine if the photo could be
improved in some way.
from Rhode Island, USA (2010):
I had a great time
on the trip and I learned a lot. To begin with, I am much
more comfortable with my equipment and use it more
effectively. I also look at things differently
now…especially small things that did not attract me
before…and then look at it in relation to other things
I learned to zoom in
to narrow my view instead of always looking at everything as
a grand scene…although I still love doing that too.
Sab validated the
fact that I am allowed to (should) take A LOT of shots of
something so that I can find the right image…something that
drives my family insane.
I also learned a lot
about Paris from Sab…stories about people and places and how
to respond to those people and places. I have not been in
Paris for 35 years so it was a fascinating, and
well-worthwhile 4 hour journey. Thanks Sab!
