RUTH WAS WONDERFUL.
I initially contacted Ruth via her Instagram stories and got an immediate very helpful response, and from there, I was fortunate enough to have a one on one tutoring session with Ruth. I have had my Sony Digital SLR for 6 months using it on Program mode and was ready to learn more! Ruth was wonderful! She gave me clear understandable explanations at a good pace. We had fun trying out the different functions and I now feel like I know my camera so much better and am confident to start playing around more. Ru”
