    This is the 3rd photography related course I’ve taken here, and it is by far the best and most professional I’ve seen so far.

    Okay, so this is my first time on this site and out of the many choices I decided to do this one since I’m only beginning my photography journey and had no idea what I was doing. I have to say he did a great job explaining all the basics and pretty much explaining all you need to do if you’re just starting out. There are some pictures that you can print out that help as well. I don’t find him to be boring wither I was actually entertained by what he was saying. I don’t know as a beginner I have to say I really like this course and I learned a lot and I definitely recommend.
