I have really enjoyed how the instructor explains everything he talks about, the detail he puts into each lesson makes this a top of the line 100 level course. I can really tell how much Paul enjoys photography and teaching which helps me connect and learn. A few concepts in photography were not really clicking for me as to how important they are and how to manipulate them (DoF). With Paul's instruction and demonstration, everything just clicked in place and it is something I will now remember. Thank you Paul, I look forward to more classes with you.

This course was an excellent jumpstart for people who want to learn how to use their camera's manual settings. The course quickly explained important elements of the camera and how to use them to create art in photography. Paul uses excellent examples to illustrate principles, and offers a really simple way to jump in and try out photography without the limits of the auto setting. I would definitely take more courses from Paul!

Paul is an awesome teacher! He uses real life examples to make his presentations relevant, interesting and captivating. He engages his students with leading questions and is empathetic with the issues that all photographers encounter. This course is not lecture-style but rather a workshop with real people. I especially liked the short segments which invite re-visiting when I didn't quite "get it" the first time through. I recommend this course not just for beginners but for experienced photographers who want a warm-up and some inspiration. I'm already looking forward to Paul's next course.

Paul really makes photography concepts easy to understand. This course is packed with great information on everything from how to use a camera, to how to frame a shot, to how to work with lighting. For every new piece of information Paul discusses, he provides real examples of when that was useful to him, and shows photos using that concept. Just this weekend, I went to the Smokies and was able to use what I learned from this course to play around with my camera in manual mode. For comparison, I took some of the same shots with the auto settings on and was amazed at how much better color I was able to capture in manual mode! I absolutely recommend this course for anyone looking to expand their photography knowledge or to pick it up as a new hobby.

This course was comprehensive, entertaining, and very well organized! Paul is not only a fantastic photographer, but a gifted teacher as well. He used creative illustrations and simple explanations to explain very complex concepts. I love how Paul showed lots of examples of his photos and explained the subtleties that make up a good picture. I feel way more confident in my ability to shoot manually on my DSLR now. This was well worth my time and much better than reading a photography book!

Paul does a phenomenal job of making the complicated and logistical world of photography very simple and feasible to beginning and experienced photographers. I've been shooting for seven years and JUST NOW have finally understood the basic ideas behind all the buttons I'm moving around. Thanks Paul!

Technical concepts like f-stops and ISO are explained in new and fresh ways using interesting and easy to understand examples. Understanding what really goes on inside your camera will not only lead to making better photographs but will build your self confidence in being a photographer.

Thank you for such a great, easy to understand, and enlightening course! The segments are just the right length with important information and never boring! I learned a lot of tips and gained a new understanding of things that I had made so difficult, I am not afraid to experiment with all those buttons now. I am reviewing the course again and it is even better the second time around. I plan to take more of your courses as you are an excellent instructor. Thank you!

The enthusiasm that Paul shows for photography is enough to inspire anyone to pick up a camera and give it a go. I have dabbled in photography for many years, but have not had any education since before digital photography was available. This course taught me more than I imagined it would and has renewed my confidence with my camera. I have never been excited about ISO or White Balance and now I can't wait to play with those setting as I head to Europe in the coming weeks. I have sneaking suspicion I will be showing Paul some awesome photos when I return thanks to this class.

It's obvious that Paul both knows what he's doing and loves it. He explains things in non-technical terms for the beginners, but without losing the language of real photography. This course is great for beginning photographers and the more experienced alike. He has great things to say about light, cameras, and exploring. I'd fully recommend it.

As a very novice photographer, I found the online class to be very helpful. I wish I had actually been in the class as I think participating would have been more instructive to me. Paul was excellent and I am looking forward to additional classes with him!
