This has proved to be just what I needed. Explanation of terms like Aperture and ISO (previously I had absolutely no idea about them) has given me extra tools for improving my photo quality. Thank you for this wonderful course!!
Yes this is very nice as for beginners, as all things are well explained for the use a camera and more.
I am brand new to the inner workings of a camera so this is exactly what i needed! The presentation is laid out very well and the information is super helpful!
The course provided me with the information I expected in a clear and structured way. It was easy to follow and a very good intro to basic settings and practical examples that you can try right away to get out of the "I'll just click the button and take a picture and that's all" zone. Very good start, and also appreciated a lot the use-cases provided for each setting explained, so the student can go further and try a hands-on approach to what they've just learned. Also very nice website with guides to go in depth and learn more from after finishing this. Satisfied with the course, cannot give it 5 stars though since it was not actually providing too much content, more of a kickstart for absolute beginners in order to dare and go out of their automatic settings comfort zone, to the professional one.
Yes, a good match for me! I know nothing about photography and always wanted to test the waters to see if it was for me. Very informative, great instructor! Thank you!
I knew going in it was an introduction course, but you still can't go wrong. Everything is simplified for anyone to understand as well as broken down. I am going to take another course from him.

Great intro. Very basic and a good place to start if you have never used a camera in manual mode or if you want to start and take real photos not just snap and go shots.
He's a really passionate teacher with great knowledge and clarity of thought thank you for sharing so much with us will take another course soon.
