“I have just completed this the second course presented by Kasia. I have viewed many a tutorial online and quickly have lost interest, but following Kasias' courses I have been engaged from the introductions to the conclusions of the courses. Thank you so much for yet another fantastic course from which I have learnt a lot and continue to improve my understanding of, and applying post processing techniques in Photo Shop to enhance my images to closely reveal my pre-visualisation thereof. Your teaching style, patience and the ability to make what may seem difficult, seem so easy is just what I needed. I look forward to more of your courses. Thanks again and best regards, Patrick.”
