This is the first time I take a Workshop, and it was a great experience! Highly recommended. Whether or not you have the necessary equipment, Cynthia guides you and gives you the tips to achieve the photo you want. And the most wonderful thing is to take the photo without thinking of editing it! Cynthia shares her knowledge without limits and encourages you to go for more.

5 stars workshop! I loved the agenda, the order and its structure. It was dynamic, agile, entertaining, clear and precise; with excellent material.
I really enjoyed all your knowledge. In particular, I was pleasantly surprised that you explained the circles of confusion so clearly and simply. There is an extra plus that you give with the knowledge that your profession gives you, in addition to enriching us with your own experiences and advice.
2 years ago I bought the macro lens, and this Workshop was the kicker I needed to enter into this world.
