I have no experience with DSLR. Do I need to attend more than one beginners' class before I level up to intermediate?

Reviewed by Geri M. on 12/17/2020
Kathy Adams Clark did a great job of teaching an online photography class. I wanted to wait until in person classes start again, being incredibly ADHD(really) but not knowing when that will possibly be, I decided to try this. Clark was very thorough in her explanations, and even sent a recording of the class afterwards. I would for sure take another class with her if in person doesn't start up again (She's in TX, I am in CA)
