John Greengo is an excellent instructor and I always get useful information from his classes. This one serves as a great reminder to the proven techniques and best practices. The information is delivered in a meaningful and easy way of learning.
This course is perfect for those who are just starting out. As a semi-newbie with a Nikon D3300, I find that it unfortunately doesn't go into as much detail as I'd like. But seeing as I got the class for free and John did acknowledge it was a bit of a crash course. One great thing was about composition. I hadn't done any research on it and appreciated the little bit he said on it. So I will be taking this course as a springboard! Thanks!
If you are new to photography or need a refresher on the basics.. Take this class! I learned more basics in this 90 class then I did taking 3 classes here locally. The info is simple and easy to follow. The pictures and graphs make it easy to follow along. Great job. This is class 1 of my series to launch my career. Thank you John for sharing.
