my camera in 14 reviews

I'm not an expert yet and may never be - but I'm far more comfortable now with my camera's controls and my photography is improving.Thank you!

I am a hobbist and this course gave me an amazing material for controling my camera and taking the best of it.

Some information was not applicable to my camera, but the knowledge was good to know.

Help me understand a lot of my camera and my capabilities of expressing my emotion thought photos.

After this course I'm able to explore my camera and make photos that I'm proud off.

I learned a lot about how my camera works in this course!

Really helped me get control of my camera and understand how to create the images I wanted.

so much in 9 reviews

GREAT COURSE muy bueno pero tendria que ser menos teoria y mas practica excelente Another course complete and so much learnt from some of the great photographers and instructors out there.

I have learned so much.

Thanks teachers so much.

I am learning so much from here and it makes me eager to know much more and to investigate on different sites for further details and lessons.

Great, been learning so much through this course.

I learned so much in this course, I would recommend this and the previous courses being offered in the specialization Photography Basics and Beyond from Smartphone to DSLR.

It's not the same thing, of course, but it's a visual art.This course and "Cameras, Exposure, and Photography" teached me a lot and brought so much joy into my life.I'm not planning to make money as a photographer, but I'm happy to have an opportunity to create better and better photographs.

looking forward in 5 reviews

I take my camera with me wherever I go now, and I am starting to get an eye for a photo; that tutorial on framing was a big help.These courses are very thorough, with lots of photos to view as examples.I am really looking forward to the rest of the course.

I'm looking forward to the next course and hope the material is all ready to go!

Part 2 has caused me to put on my thinking cap, nothing felt really dificult, but it is obvious the easy part is behind us.Looking forward to participate in part 3 of this course and to be learning new skills I had really high expectations from the course, I believe but it wasn't upto the mark.

Looking forward to next course.

peer review in 4 reviews

Peer Review remains frustrating, but aside from enforcing the grading rubric that issue is on me and my fellow students more than the Profs.

I really liked the community and the peer review assignments that made me do some creative stuff that i enjoyed Basic knowledge about photograph, but It is so useful and great for me, an armature guide.

Sorry but yet again a potentially great course spoiled by the implementation, way too many mistakes in the quizzes, peer review grading systems which in places are nonsense .
