Thanks a lot for watching one of my fast start camera classes if you've completed this course and you're wondering what do I do next? Because I want more information here's, what I recommend if you haven't taken it already have a class called the photography starter kit. This is a relatively short three hour class where we go through shutter speeds, apertures focusing depth of field composition and lighting, and this is not in reference to a particular camera, but photography in general a little bit more about the art form of doing it out in the field. And so now that you know how to work your camera, you want to take it the next step to learning more about photography out in the world, and so that would be the next place you want to go. If you've done that one and you want to take it even further than you want to move on to my fundamentals of photography, this is a class that a update on a yearly basis, and it contains what I think is everything a photographer should know have about t...
hirty years of experience that I have dumped into this class, and if you really want to dive and deep, this is where we get into the nitty gritty details and talk a lot about everything from shutter speeds apertures to an entire day on composition, so that is that's one of my most popular classes that's that's, one of my favorite classes have put a lot of work that goes into that and that's kind of the ultimate class after that, then we kind of get to more specialized classes. Something that you may be particularly interested in would be something like travel photography. So I have a class that is partick particularly geared towards the travel photographer. We talked much less about shutter speeds and apertures, and we more talk about dealing with gear and logistics. And how do you talk to people with cultures that speak a different language than you? The next type of class that I have is a nature and landscape class. And so here there's a lot of specialized techniques that landscape photographers are using to achieve their maximum depth of field, and we're going to be covering all of those in this a two day class. So there's a lot of information in here from your camera class. The other direction that you can do is learn more about your lenses. And so very shortly I will be coming out with a class called mastering the lands and this is going to have a class specifically for canon lenses and a class specifically for night conferences. They both used their own very interesting and very sophisticated technology to make some just amazing lenses and there's so many choices figuring out what's. The next lends for you to purchase. And how do you use them to get the best benefit? And the maximum sharpness out of each of those images is going to be something that we're going to be covering in this class is gonna be a lot of fun, and should be a great way to follow up a class in your camera, knowing your camera, knowing your lenses and knowing photography is all part of the game for being a better photographer. Thanks a lot.
Ratings and Reviews
I always loved photography and even did a 12 year stint as a correspondent for a local newspaper, back in the 35 mm/film days. In 2005 I bought my first Canon, a Rebel XT. I had fun with it but never really knew what I was doing. I would get a good photo about 1 ever 100 shots, just from sheer luck. I bought a Canon Rebel T4i in Nov. of 2012 and having never taken a photography class, have been fumbling along with it ever since. When saw John's Photography Starter Kit, I immediately signed on and loved it. I was so thrilled when I saw he had specific classes for specific cameras and dove into this class, head first! It's like a dream come true! I love John's teaching style. He's concise, gets right to the point and doesn't waste time on needless fluff. I just bought this course yesterday and have already finished it and am ready to do it all over again, until I get it all right. I even learned something with the first glimpse of his slides and the photos of the T4i...I didn't know you could open the back screen, turn it around and re-seat it and have your display right there on the back of the camera without it sticking out and in the way! This course is going to be a huge help in getting the very most out of my camera. Thanks, John!
Getting a lot better
I am a huge fan of John Greengo. John is pretty much my Elvis. I learned everything, and I mean everything about this camera,though I kind of felt john could have been a little more enthusiastic about the T4i. I shoot mostly video with 4k super 35 cameras in raw. I understand top of the live vs. consumer grade. My point is, I think this camera deserved a little more enthusiasm than I felt it got. Throw a high quality lens on this machine and it is magnificent. The T4i is only entry level in price point. The photos I've taken with L-series lenses are stellar. Video is very acceptable as well, even with the H.264 codec. I would't have gotten that feeling after watching the video. From a leaning stand point this series of videos is worth the price and then some. I would just hate for people to walk away feeling they bought a toy. They most certainly did not.
Excellent course and superb tutor. I thought the pace of the tutorials was perfect. I was particularly impressed with the coverage of the course, which was extensive and thorough. I liked the tutorial so much that I have now purchased 3 more of John Greengo's courses.
