Chock full of valuable tips and insights
This is the second course I've taken from Bernie and they're both excellent for beginners who want to get up and running quickly in photography. It offers an excellent compilation of valuable tips and approaches presented in a straight forward, easy to digest manner, that will allow you to move from snapshots to photographs in the shortest time possible. It is even very good for folks who have been actively engaged in photography for a number of years and want to see how a professional approaches a variety of different situations. I guarantee that you will go over this course again and again as you progress and each time you do you'll get more and more out of it. Thank you Bernie.


Chock full of valuable tips and insights
I have watched both Bernie's courses, and found both of them interesting, informative and even entertaining.
In his funny, quirky way, Bernie explains some of the more complex or sophisticated ways of photo taking, but as usual he is able to do so in a simple way not to confuse the listener.
I have enjoyed this course, but it is geared towards beginners in photography.

The next Level
This course has given me a better understanding of how the advanced settings give you the flexible control to better Photography The Exposure Triangle. Depth of Field. Aperture Settings. and so on are a compilation of settings required to take you to the next level along with the knowledge that you can use those settings to achieve the results you want next time you pick up your camera.

A great deal of thought went in to delivering,explaining producing this excellent course.

Congratulations Bernie well done, and more of the same please
