Enjoyed this theme. Though it was challenging for me, the brief helped to get me out of my comfort zone.
5/5 by Vanessa Annoni
Good direction from Matheus, but the 2hr timeframe feels too short. See below, & happy to pay $50 for that.
4/5 by Kristine Schipp
It's a great photo session. Matt gave us a few simple concepts that helped me look at color with a more artistic eyes. I could see that the pictures I took during the session look so much better than those I had taken before. Matt is an excellent teacher. He's kind and friendly and made a sincere effort to get to know his students and share his story with them. I appreciate Matt's feedbacks on my photos very much. They helped me learn my strengths and weaknesses and offer new approaches to integrate color into my pictures. Matt has kindly lent me one of his prime lens so that he could teach me how to give my pictures a nice boke look. That was totally unexpected. I'd definitely recommmend Matt to other people.

Yesterday was the first Sydney Photography Group event that I had attended. I thought that it was great! I was initially surprised by the structure with its 祖hallenges and basically being told to go away for 45 minutes and take some photos. But after getting over the shock, I had a great time. I enjoyed having to once again look at the world in a different way and think about what I might shoot. I found Zac痴 feedback constructive and valuable. I came away from the morning reviewing what I had learnt and found that I had learnt quite a few things. All-in-all a most enjoyable way to spend a morning! I look forward to attending future sessions.
4/5 by Angela Gorta
Relaxed, Informative and a great chance to think about your photography. My first time at this event but certainly not the last. The feedback I received was very helpful and honest.Much appreciated Zac. Thanks and see you again.

Good location, friendly crowd, interesting challenges.
4/5 by Tracey flynn
I loved having challenges set and being able to just go at own pace to try and meet the challenge. I liked that we didn稚 stay all together as we took photos. Being able to go off and use our creativity and then meet up for critiquing was relaxing and fun. It was great having experts available to help with questions and get tips from. They were encouraging and it motivated me to get out and shoot more.
