I had the honor and privilege of meeting Diana Shay Diehl as a volunteer assistant for her Desert Institute class, “ iPhone & Compact Camera Macro Photography” workshop, this past Spring 2017. Diana proved to be a gifted craft master and serious art photographer. Her attention to detail and meticulous, thorough abilities with instructing were greatly appreciated by all who attended this class. Special attention and expert help/advise were given to individual students as well addressing the entire class. She has a certain knack for crafting the eclectic and, even with a cell phone, she demonstrated one can capture great evocative art photographs with such a simple device. You will definitely develop and hone your photography skills by attending any of Diana’s photography workshops. Diana’s experience, wisdom, practiced and refined skills should never be underestimated or undervalued. She is a gem, and I look forward to attending, partaking, and volunteering for many more of her future photography classes.
