    Amazing Course


    The course was very informative and amazing. I learned so much detail from this. Of all the knowledge gained from this course, I have gained so much more respect of taking photos. Learning the different types of lenses, aperture, shutter speed, etc… has really opened a whole book that a lot of people might not know. I truly recommend this course for others who are just starting photography!

  2. Skill Success

    Great for beginners, or those coming back after a long break


    I took this course to refresh my memory on many of the basics of good photography. This course met my expectations, and I even learned some things I didn’t know before. I thought that the course was well designed and presented and that the explanations were easy to understand.
