I have a Micro 4:3 camera - the Olympus EPL2, and I had been using the auto function since I received it in June. I was growing increasingly frustrated with the orange-tone of my photos and the unimpressive photos I was taking. Before taking the class, I actually purchased the book during a sale. Still, BDF convinced me to shell out $125 and just take the class.

The class was not too difficult to understand, especially since I have a film SLR and I understand the basics of manual photography. But, the class showed me that there's so much more I didn't know. Although it's not difficult, I think it takes practice, so I'm going to diligently practice what I learned in February. I plan to go over all the homework assignments in February and practice one per week so I can really try to master what I learned.
I feel pretty encouraged though, and I already feel much more in command of my camera. I've been using the Manual setting, and I think my photos are getting better. You can see samples of the photos I took for various homework assignments (that I never submitted) in the post about San Juan Capistrano.
There are other classes, and I'd definitely check it out if you're frustrated and figuring it out yourself is not working.
