Great! I'm so thankful to you, CreativeLive, for providing this great opportunity to learn an important subject of photography - Speedlights - from the professional Mark Wallace. He is such a good teacher and explains everything in real-life situations and on slides. As he fires his flash, I instantly see the resulting photo on my screen, so this is theory combined with practice. I'm in fact watching you from Belarus, and it's midnight, so I'm fighting with sleep, but I can't get myself away from the screen. this is my 1st CL experience. I'm very grateful for running a rewatch of the previous Day the following morning, so I woke up and saw what I'd missed. And it's totally free! Thank you so much for a true first-class education!
Truly a fabulous class. Mark has such a gift for taking a complex subject and making it so understandable and fun at the same time. Mark is easily one of the best instructors out there. Highly highly highly recommend this class.
Thank you!! You rock!!! I just purchased the videos and I am looking forward to learning how to use my Nikon SB 910. I knew I had to purchase the videos as I have been glued to my monitor soaking up as much information as I can and neglecting my family. LOL Mark, I am grateful that you are sharing your knowledge and for the CreativeLIVE team providing the education to me. I am so excited to put all this information to use. Thank you for the wealth of information!
