Once again, Bernie Raffe explains his working knowledge in his own inimitable mixture of fun and real learning. There have been comments about repeated sections from Part one and, yes there are a few. However, I believe these had to be there to enable the use of part two as a standalone and, to put some of the lectures into context. Part 1 consisted of a 'Lets go out and I will show you how to do it' style of course. Great as it is about taking pictures with a minimum of theory. Part 2 takes it to the next level by not only showing the pictures being taken but a lot more detailed information about the settings and easy to digest theory as to why these settings are used. All of this is very useful and I learned about settings on my camera I never knew existed!

Believe me these courses are well worth the cost. well presented, extremely well illustrated and explained in real life situations rather than theoretical with charts and diagrams. I said in my review of Part 1 that Bernie's style was like having a mate around to show you how to take great pictures. Having completed Part 2, I am going to miss my mate Bernie. Roll on more courses from him.

While this course is much shorter than part 1, it does go in to a little more depth on some of the more technical aspects of photography. I now feel that I can confidently take better pictures and explore my DSLR properly, rather than just take pictures in auto.

I just finished watching both courses (Part I and II). It is simple and clear, with lots of examples and lucid illustrations. I really loved it. Thanks a lot for such an effort. I do recommend both of these courses as they cover a lot and are to the point.

Thanks Bernie, I have picked up lots of tips from both your courses, Part 1 and part 11. I really enjoyed Part 11. They were most enjoyable and informing.

Of the many courses that I have taken, this course along with part I contains essentially all of the materials needed in small easily understandable sections with great illustrations. I particularly like the ability to download sections for detail review. These courses are among the best values in Udemy.

Bernie knows how to make a course that can teach you a lot and won't make you bored. His explanations and examples are very clear. Pretty much every time a question comes to my mind while watching Bernie surprises me with an answer just a few minutes later in the same video or points to one of other videos in his course. That plus some good sense of humour made this my favourite course.

Part II of this course is just as great as part I. There are a few videos with the same information, but repetition is always important when learning something new. I found many more great tips in this course and was able to gain a deeper understanding about the benefits of manual vs. automatic/semi- automatic modes. Bernie is a great teacher--I hope he adds more courses!

This is the second course I've taken from Bernie and they're both excellent for beginners who want to get up and running quickly in photography. It offers an excellent compilation of valuable tips and approaches presented in a straight forward, easy to digest manner, that will allow you to move from snapshots to photographs in the shortest time possible. It is even very good for folks who have been actively engaged in photography for a number of years and want to see how a professional approaches a variety of different situations. I guarantee that you will go over this course again and again as you progress and each time you do you'll get more and more out of it. Thank you Bernie.

I have watched both Bernie's courses, and found both of them interesting, informative and even entertaining. In his funny, quirky way, Bernie explains some of the more complex or sophisticated ways of photo taking, but as usual he is able to do so in a simple way not to confuse the listener. I have enjoyed this course, but it is geared towards beginners in photography. Katherine

Bernie has me hooked with his wisdom and humor. He knows the subject but doesn't boast which is refreshing. I look forward to another class in the future.

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!

This course has given me a better understanding of how the advanced settings give you the flexible control to better Photography The 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 Ganner
