I loved Alan Shapiro’s class!

I loved Alan Shapiro‘s class! It was really helpful just to see the little tips and tricks he uses with his still life photography. While technical classes are incredibly helpful, I really enjoyed that he presented the artistic side and the simplified piece. The relaxed and interactive flow of the class was really great, much more like a conversation than a lecture which made it that much more fantastic!
