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.

I bought a Panasonic G9 camera and couldn't find a good visual user guide anywhere. I've hunted through YouTube and online, only to waste hours scrubbing through off topic babble just to find bits of useful information, but there is nothing complete out there. I found John's Panasonic G7 presentation, and it's been immensely helpful. Though the camera button locations and handling are different from the G9, the menu system, and camera functions are mostly similar. I try reading user manuals, but it's easy to get lost and sometimes hard to relate to. John presents everything so clearly, logically, and in terms easy to relate to and follow. He puts in so much time to make everything look professional and make sense. I really appreciate all his hard work, and his love and passion to share his knowledge. I'm so thankful he creates videos like this, as modern cameras have so many features now, that they can get overwhelming to learn how to use. Watching him demo cameras is also really helpful. I've also taken his Fundamentals of Photography class, and it's phenomenal and foundational. It's helped me learn a lot. Thanks so much for these great quality classes.
Simply wow! Worth every penny. The whole course is totally professional and delivered in a classroom-like setting. The visual presentation and live demos are flawless and so helpful if you have your camera on and play along. I would never buy another expensive camera without taking a course like this! I've looked everywhere else online for camera-specific information like this in one place (I have no time to browse the poor manual that came with the camera). John also gives great information on basic photography. Highly recommend the class to all newbies to this camera. I will be much more comfortable using this little beast after finishing this course. Thank you!!
I have had the GX7 for some time, and never fully understood how to use all the settings. This course was brilliant, clear and precise and easy to follow and interesting. Brilliant!
