  • Very precise and good starting for beginners. Useful ballpark settings gives a starting orientation to beginners. I knew camera optics as engineer. But putting them together in real life to get good photos was made possible by this course.
  • Kevin is a great photographer, but that's not the point. More importantly is the fact he's an incredible teacher, both in person and with the Udemy online lessons. I'm a terrible student, so knowing that I can go back, over and over to pick up something I might have missed the first time is incredibly valuable. Prior to beginning the course, he outlines quite clearly, the 5 or 6 topics we are going to learn. He has under promised and over delivered as the lessons taught are legion. There is much more to be learned than merely a handful of things, each segment teaches something new, and for me, it's truly eye opening to learn the different ways to view and photograph different subjects. This class is one which I shared with my 80 year old mother... she'd always wanted to learn how to shoot on manual, now she does! (Mom says, "Hi Kevin!) Guys, I got my moneys worth with this lesson and I strongly encourage anyone who wants to improve their photography skills to take this course. It's worth much more than I paid for it. Happy shooting!
  • This is undoubtedly one of the best photography courses I've taken. Kevin covered all the important issues concerning manual photography and the importance to knowing how your camera operates. His lectures have included excellent video examples of creating outstanding photographs. I have certificates in Photoshop and Illustrator and I have just bought a fantastic Canon camera and I am very excited about using what I have learned in this course.
  • I loved the course. The lectures were done in such a manner that it was very easy for me to understand. And I especially liked the printable pdf's with practice homework. I learned a lot. Thank you for putting together such a fine course!
  • Kevin covers the photography fundamentals in this course. It's a great way for folks to learn how to expand their creativity beyond what can be achieved with the automatic setting of their camera. For each lesson, an exercise sheet is provided so the student can practice the material presented in the course. Kevin is a good communicator and makes the material simple to understand. Nice course.
