Bernie explains things in a simple straightforward way that makes it easy to understand and he breaks up his teaching into short and easy to digest chunks so that you can learn one thing at a time without getting overwhelmed. The videos themselves aren't professionally done so they don't look that great but that doesn't matter because the tips he provides are so useful. I also kinda like the laidback feel and the occasional jokes thrown in.
Highly recommended for beginners or enthusiasts aiming to improve their skills in photography. All photography technical features are very well explained in detail, coupled with useful reference/ comparative images.
