Loved this course
I thoroughly enjoyed Part I. While this course is more technical, I am enjoying it as well. I particularly like the fact that I can go back to the material as often as I like. Bernie's presentation is great!
Good mix of info
Some I knew but being reminded is not a bad thing. Some was new information so a good mix for me. The course is easy to understand and follow and watching more than once reveals new nuggets of information most times. Well worth following the adventures of Bernie and Jane!
The Next Level
This course has given me a better understanding of how the advanced settings give you the flexible control to better photography viaThe Exposure Triangle. Depth of Field, Aperture Settings, and so on are a compilation of settings required to take you to the next level along with the knowledge that you can use those settings to achieve the results you want next time you pick up your camera.
A great deal of thought went in to delivering,explaining producing this excellent course. Congratulations Bernie well done, and more of the same please
This is a fantastic course filled with so much useful information. I am a big fan of Bernie's and he sure came through with this course. You won't be disappointed.
Great information with a fun presentation
Bernie has me hooked with his wisdom and humour. He knows the subject but doesn't boast which is refreshing.
I look forward to another class in the future.
