"The ability to answer question about other areas of the program in which we were using, even if it wasn't specifically relevant to the course objectives. It was very useful for myself due to what I do for my day to day job, and being able to apply the knowledge from the retouching side of things and transfer them to my somewhat artworking side of my job in order to make posters and people within it look more appealing to the eye. I felt all the topics that we covered, were done at the right pace in order for to absorb information quickly and efficiently like we would in any other working environment in my eyes that is. "
