I've watched so many DSLR tutorials but this one has really been helpful. Easy to follow and very relevant. A no nonsense, friendly common sense approach thank you
If you're a blogger, this class does a very good job of explaining the basics of taking a good photo and helps to explain how to set up photos of your projects for the best results.
