So I've got the basics now what can we shoot yet just waiting for you oh right waiting on me now okay, so here's what we're going to d'oh we're going to set up the scene will put our cameras on full auto that way we're going to take a look and see what the camera wants to do how it wants to do it and then we'll flip the switch to manual yeah okay well and what we're going to find out like you said with each scene we're going to set up our lighting and we're working with models were gonna pose if we're doing food we're going to get everything the right position get our compositions and so forth and you'll find that well otto is actually going to do a pretty good job when we do these things beforehand but maybe not creatively yes maybe not creatively it might not make the right decision certain times but shooting and auto it gives us a good chance to kind of talk about what the cameras doing where it's making decisions that we wouldn't necessarily make creatively and then we're going to ...
shoot in manual we're going to get our final shot manuel weaken dialling all the settings on her own what we would want teo get the right composition the right everything take over so after completing a video we would like for you to complete the assignment yes, absolutely and don't shotgun this entire course like she does manual's I don't shotgun okay, so I like to read the manuals of all my care from cover to cover she's the only person I know reason not the only person that does that okay, but what I want to have to do is is rather shot getting the entire course don't just do it all in one sitting will want to do is to sit down taking a video taken a chapter if you want but go and complete the assignment like she said if you guys go and complete the assignment, it'll help to really hammer in the points that we're talking about well and then you also have cool stuff to share on s r labs dot com the goal what is the goal? Well, the goal is to really master your camera all the way through take each element, break it down and really learn it and the best way to do that truly is toe pause after each of those elements and then practice absolutely when you guys pick up your camera we don't want you to think about the setting we don't want to think about anything technical we just want you to know how to get to your creativity all right? So we're done with this video I think so let's go I want to shoot already haven't I've been waiting on you next week, right

I watched this class "live" and was simply amazed at the amount of information Pye covered. Yes, he talks a little fast, and since I was streaming the class I couldn't stop it to review anything, but this guy really knows his stuff and explains it very well so I absorbed quite a bit. Bye is enthusiastic, clearly enjoys his craft, and delivers excellent information to students in a light heartedI and fun way. I think some reviewers are a bit harsh about his humor. Lighten up, people! His examples and the additional information his co-host provides are very worthwhile and you can tell the course was well thought out. I plan to buy the class to help me get back into DSLR photography.
I really enjoyed this class. I am not a beginner, but there were still things I learned here that I found helpful. I really enjoy learning from Pye. He is quick, gets to the point and doesn't spend a lot of time going over and over the same point. There is a wide variety of things that he covers, so really something for everyone. I would recommend purchasing this class if you want to understand your camera better, improve your technique and start taking better photos.
I have tried to learn photography myself via the internet / YouTube but always felt like I was missing something in my foundation. Sure I can zero out my meter...but why? How do I know the settings I've selected are the correct ones? I've been circling this drain for a year until this course. WOW! Pye has SO MUCH information in every video. He doesn't just stand in a classroom and talk, he's out in the field actually putting his settings into his camera, talking about why and why not and then shooting. He's hands on the entire course. You don't just hear him, you see exactly what he's doing! I'm a visual / listening learner and this is my eureka moment! Thank you Pye! Watching the Exposure video and how you changed the settings yet maintained the exact same exposure was mind blowing. Awesome course! I would recommend this to anyone new to photography or anyone that feels like they don't have all the info.
