The Bonus Section 5 is much more of a general knowledge on photography, but still - the best part of the course. The main part is useless, as the presenter is almost illiterate (she does not even know the definition of bokeh, as she considers it as a number of shiny circles in the background, which she gets when she uses telephoto (???) lenses).

The class on portrait photography is informative. What I found great is the bonus content. It helped me a lot as a beginer to understand my camera and improve.

The final section on basic photography was concise and very informative. The earlier sections were less useful but delivered the content well.

In my opinion it's really basic course. I can find this information everywhere on internet. Apart from that, she is really nice and knows what she is talking about. I was sorry not to have a more in-depth course.

the course would have been better if the changes you are suggesting you would have photoshopped them and showed them as a comparision. Thank You.

she didn't tell few things and expects you to see her other courses for the same, other than that she taught very well.

The course is amazing for the beginners . I think It is going to be more laudable if little bit more examples are given on portrait photography. Besides, I want to greatly appreciate about the portion of basics in photography that is added in the course. Thank you

so far it is okay ...... needs to have some music at the back and the young lady needs to work on her voice to make what she is saying more interesting

I thoroughly enjoyed it. The content was informative and engaging. Giving half a star less is due to the volume issues of the speaker. Please also include more examples of posing.

Without information about aperture, ISO, shutter speed during the inicial course content sections. Leak of photos with practical examples. Also some missing information about zoom and prime lens.

As the course was offered for free I will give it two points - but please don't pay for this course. Its pretty poor. The main section on portrait photography is amateurish at best and really more suited to Instagram type shots, at best! The tutor seems pleasant and gives a few useful tips (color wheel for instance) but technical content is absent - mainly the tutor telling is why she likes some mediocre, royalty free, stock images. The bonus sections are awful - robotic voiced presenter reading some PowerPoint slides covering the very basics. Get a good book on photography and search YouTube for ideas and technical tips etc - it will be better than this course! Please don't pay for this course. I certainly will be careful to choose any course from Udemy to ensure its what I want and the contents delver value.
