Coming from film photography into the world of digital has been quite a struggle for me. Not so much with the camera, but more with the computer side of things. At a stage, I felt I should just give up because watching Youtube videos was confusing me even more. A friend of mine who had done a few classes with the Osner school suggested I book a lesson with Samatha.

Well, this is something I should have done a long time ago. The first hour was an eye-opener and after another four sessions, I was back to enjoying my photography. Sam your gentle nature and enthusiasm for photography are just electric. I promise I will be back to continue with some advanced sessions later, for now, I feel like a child in a candy store.
