Dear Ms. Russell,
I loved your class today! I always do. In spite of the fact that it's far for me. I am adoring the projects, and I profoundly appreciate your "frankness" about my boring two doors. I look forward to the next semester, and always, with a smile. I like your style.
Howard kills me! His knowledge on the specifics regarding cameras and lenses, how to make 'em work, makes the class so worth the distance.
Very best regards,
Jose Luis Beristain Larraza
