Feedback from previous students

Thanks Ida for giving such a useful tips on how to control DSLR in manual mode. I had no clue how that works by the end of my first lesson I have already gained very useful tips on how to control shutter speed/aperture and ISO and other useful tips. I must say her knowledge and experience in photography is quite vast. She also gave me very useful advise to buy my DSLR camera. I would highly recommend Ida to those who wants to learn more about DSLR and improved photography. – Shalz
