This course taught me good amount of knowledge about photography. But, what I didn't like was the lack of close captions, which I use to study for other courses on Udemy. Plus, the grammar in the articles needed to be polished. Overall, this course was worth my time and energy. Thank you.

This is a beginners’ course but it jumps straight into technical information and is not easy to follow.

- The Sound needs to be more enhanced. - The presentation is good but I think needs to be more attractive. - There's some out-of-date information & charts.

Everyone who remembers his own education remembers teachers, not methods and techniques. The teacher is the heart of the educational system. Thank You so much sir

The content taught was good and in detail for a beginners course. However for a photography course I do feel that for a lot of the examples that they should have taken pictures with a bad and then a good example instead of bad stock looking photos and some weren't even in focus. But I will say the summary after every section was a nice touch to the course.

Incorrect spelling, clearly hasn't used a proof-reader (or if so they should be sacked). Photos used weren't always in focus, not good for a photography course!

It didn't feel like some professional photographer was teaching this course. Just reading whatever was written on the screen. Interaction could be better with some live demonstration by the photographer himself.

The information is easy to follow, not too technical but not overly basic either. instructer does an amazing job of explaining everything; it's done at a good pace, his instruction is understandable and the quizzes build confidence that you are actually learning something! I would highly recommend this course!

Inhaltlich war es ganz gut aber oft waren die Videos abgehackt. Zudem waren oft nur Folien zum selber lesen dargestellt.

He is faking his accent (which is awfull to hear for 5 mins) Most of the parts in the 1 section is a ppt
