光看這個課程內容, 你可以想見, 十一週過後, 你對攝影的知識, 要比一般大眾要完整. 起碼, 你絕對清楚相機上每一個按鈕的功能, 你拍的照片也絕對比十一週前要好上數倍, 而且你對攝影這一行業也有更多的了解, 何況, 許多和學校有配合的廠商都給學生許多折扣, 又有贈品可拿.

我覺得任何一位對攝影有興趣的人, 如果時間和經費允許, 都應該來拿這堂課, 絕對受益良多. 絕對比自己看書, 到當地的社區大學東拿西拿課, 要有效率多了. 我就有一種感慨, 我三年前開始對攝影有興趣的時候, 就應該來上這堂課了.

  1. Hi Karen,
    雖然課程才剛開始
    但是感覺很不錯
    如果你有機會參加
    應該會是人生中一段很棒的經驗喔
    我看了你的攝影網站
    很有特色
    是你自己的工作室嗎
    還是和朋友合夥

  2. Thank you ECHO, I am just trying my best to live my life the best I can so I won’t have regret when I die. I feel lucky to live in the US because I could do a lot of things that I won’t be doing if I am still in Taiwan. Maybe I will live here for another 10, 20 or 30 years or maybe not. No one knows.

  3. 謝謝妳呢^^
    目前是個人工作室,平常工作是平面、網頁設計,
    現在也接活動記錄,伙伴有需要都會互相支援。
    希望也有機會去上些課,看看不同的視角~~
    努力的目標~呵..
