13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
You made the projects exciting and pushed us to do better!
From knowing basically nothing about photography besides snapping some pictures on my camera phone. I really learned how to work with a digital camera and shooting techniques. Also i learned a lot about editing techniques in photoshop.
I enjoyed taking lots of photos for the projects he had for us. I really thought of the lighting and story behind the photos. I love nature photography the most and got to really use that in this class.
activities, projects, assignments were very effective
I am very much into photography, so I like almost everything about the course. :D
I thought the projects were really fun, and I had complete freedom to express my ideas and creativity, while staying in the restrictions of the project guidelines.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Nope!
no suggestions
Probably the only thing that I would improve in this course would have to be the... nope. I can't think of anything, really. Maybe except for less videos that make me fall asleep. That's about it.
I thought the course was great as is.
15. Other comments:
Have a wonderful day!
Andre really helped me grow as a beginning photographer. he really helped with my shooting and editing techniques.
I'm very honored to have you as a teacher. I seriously had a lot of fun, and I believe in you. Keep up the amazing job, you do make an impact.
This was definitely one of my favorite classes. Andrzej was very easy to talk to and a great instructor. He gave great feedback, that really helped me with all the other projects. I can definitely apply everything he's taught me in my own personal photography.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
the hands on experience and the different ways on how to take a picture.
Andrzej is an asset to HawCC. He loves what he does and empowers his students to do better work by giving great examples of conventional composition and unconventional composition by what is interesting in the shots. He gave us a lot of technical information but didn't just explained it, he showed us how these different techniques effect the shot.
I enjoyed this course! Even though this is not my first photography class, I still learned things that I didn't learn before and gained a lot of information that I can take with me to help me with my photography career.
I liked that he pushed us to not just take pictures, but pictures that have meaning and say something. He has changed my perspective of photography.
project was fun and entertaining
I liked everything! I learned so much!
The projects where very challenging but very fun.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
less lectures, more projects
None
More tutorials of how to work all the settings on the DSLR cameras.
more time to work in class
Not at all! I Loved it!
15. Other comments:
I felt honored to be in his class. I learned so much from his many and varied experiences and expertise as a photographer and an artist. I believe his enthusiasm for his craft and his desire to teach each of us, whether a beginner, like myself, or the more advanced, was evident by how he answered each of our questions by giving examples to illustrate his point.
None
Overall I liked this class.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
n/a
He was is very pationate about his job and hobbies, which made it fun for me to learn more about photography. He was very instructional when it came to teaching us how to manually use a camera.
I enjoyed the live in-class demonstrations of the technology and the camera techniques, the numerous examples of other artists works as they pertained to the assignment, and the scaffolding approach to teaching such that we were expected to do more as the course went along. The teacher did not expect us to know everything from the start and helped us to understand the terminology through effective demonstrations and examples. I also liked that the class was an entire day, because their was so much material to go through and it gave me the rest of the week to prepare for the next weekʻs assignment.
I liked the way it was structured, with each assignment's achievements leading to better work on the next one. I particularly enjoyed the class session where we got to use varied lighting techniques to produce different effects for still life photography. The field trip for landscape photography was also a relaxed and fun class time. Looking at different photographers' work that was relevant to each assignment type was also very useful and broadened my understanding of what photography can be, especially artistically.
