When I was telling you about our photography class, I wasn't trying to say I had not learned anything.
I took notes on the things I felt were most important:
1. Men's faces flush red when drinking. Do not use vibrant color mode or drunk faces will look like apples.
2. Using "incandescent bulb" setting with flash will make people look like Smurfs.
I had to try that one right away. I set my camera, turned to Raw and snapped a picture. "That didn't work. You're not blue."
Raw then took a picture of me with the same settings. "Did it work?"
"No. You still look tall."
