For the price, I would recommend this for basic tips & tricks to go out and experiment with. For an absolute beginner of equipment, you may need a course on using camera, flash, wizards, etc. before finding this valuable.
I have been asked to do some real estate photography recently and was looking for best practices and tricks on things such as bathroom's (tight spaces) and such. Also on lighting rooms and spaces.
For $20 (that I paid) I think it was worth the insight, however, I would pay $90 for a course that did a preliminary walkthrough like what was presented, then perhaps some focus on pricing models with handouts available even as examples (how to present to the client) and even if the numbers were null, a model for starting at XXX adding XX per sq. foot, per picture, per scenario. Everyone lives in different real estate markets and not all of us are shooting as high end houses... so actual pricing wouldn't be relevant. However, like I said, a pricing model would help.
Many of these reviews were negative for what one could get out of the course.... like I said, it was worth $15-20, not much more as it was simply a powerpoint style presentation, zero handouts. Handouts would have boosted the value of the course by providing equipment lists, pricing model examples, and perhaps a shots list incorporating important seller points.
I did like how they went over shooting views of what it is like to LIVE in the house and then shots OF the house. I felt that was a valuable tip for a piece of real estate that has those potential views.
I liked the casualness of the couple, they talked just fine together (not sure what those complaints were about) - I only wish that this was a meatier course, handouts again, would make it that much more appealing. :)
