Upz for Rueyloon and Skyetang...
Attended one of their sessions before. Comprehensive lessons without getting too bogged down with technicalities. The hands-on session is helpful for attendees to reinforce the basic concepts and explore their creativity. Everything is conducted in relaxed and informal manner so attendees can fill free to ask any questions and clear any doubts. If you are thinking of venturing into studio or even portrait photography as a beginner, this course is quite a good start. Thumbsup from me. :thumbsup:
