This is a very informational guide, I have been working with video for a while and wanted to go to stills. I was intimidated by the camera, and really did not have the time or patience to read a manual. I was not confident in what I needed to do with it to get good shots. This gave me the skills I need to get a professional shot. I went into photography as a hobby inspired by my friends who take it more serious. I visit so many great places and people, now I can get the shots to come out even better than before, it amazes me how different the photos look when you can make those small adjustments that you wouldn't learn about unless you went to a photography school. Great program!! I'm a visual learner, and with this you can watch and also follow along hands on with your camera. --Amazon

This DVD is money well spent. I looked at taking a beginning photography class, but the cost was too high. It's a passion I always had, but never had the time and money to put towards it. I decided to try this DVD course. It has pretty much everything you need to know about the camera functions, how to use them and what not to do. Also there are really good tips on how to take great photos explaining artistic rules, lighting issues and blurry or fast action shots. Some of the lessons towards the end moved a little fast, but I think once I get more familiar with my camera it will become clear. I will always have the DVD to refer back to. The music is a little corny, but I guess it helps move the lessons along. --Amazon
