    Is this a reasonable price for a class?

    Hi,
    Just wondered if anyone has participated in any workshops...I have the chance to do a macro workshop and the cost is $185. It says it is for 5 hours with a max class size of 8. It seems to cover a lot of topics such as equipment, exposure, lighting etc with demos and hands on pracs.
    As I have never attended anything like this, I just wondered if this sounded good value?
    Thanks.
    D610 and D90 with a 16-35mm f/4,a 70-200mm f/4 ,a 300mm f/4 +TC11 convertor, 18-200mmDX and 85mm micro Dx.

    Sally...CC always appreciated

    It is only good value if you learn from it! You could pay $50.00 or $5000.00 and both could be good value if you get the knowledge from them that makes it so.

    As Rick says.

    Photo courses tend to be in the range of $10 to $60 + an hour so $185 is smack in the middle.
    Cheers

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    Sally I did a night shoot workshop in Sydney about 6 months ago. From memory cost was around $100 for 3 hours with 10 or 12 participants, so rates for the macro workshop are similar. But as Rick points out it's only good value if you get something out of it. I had a quick look at your macro posts and it looks to me like you are doing ok already.


    Cheers.
    Phil.

    Some Nikon stuff. I shoot Mirrorless and Mirrorlessless.

    Thanks for that, Phil..So far I am self taught from here, books, and the net and I seem to be working it out (slowly). I was thinking along the lines of what Rick said..if I don't get much out of it, it will be an expensive day. I guess I am comparing it to a beginners camera course I have just finished thro my camera club..it was $150 and went for 8 weeks! (and I got lots out of that!). Thanks for the advice...might think about it some more
