I have a Nikon D80. I also have an 18-200 zoom lens. (Not sure what I did with the original less powerful lens that came with the camera.) Is this an appropriate camera and lens for this class?

You can use the camera, but you will need a regular lens. There are some photo techniques that will be difficult with a zoom lens.

The lessons were easy to understand. I love that it including class participation. The instructor did a great job at demonstrating and elaborating the covered topics. I have taken a photo class with a different company and found this one to be a lot more practical as well as informative. I look forward to taken other classes to perfect my skills.
