Had so much fun in this online course. The others I was on it with were really interactive with their support and comments. I learned a lot from their posted work too - not to mention Meeta's wonderful advice to us all. I would highly recommend this online course to anyone with a passion for making stunning food imagery.

Being the "foodie" I am, and food photographer I want to be, this online-interactive course with Meeta was a no-brainer for me. I enjoyed and benefitted from every assignment and critique Meeta had gto offer. And she was very generous with her time and advice. The other five women on the course with me were talented photographers in their own rights. I learned from everyone. Very pleased with my decision to take this course.
