*Sorry! This giveaway has ended. Be sure to check back every Monday for another great giveaway!*
A couple weeks ago I started a photography class at our city’s recreation center. The problem is, I will have missed 2 of the 5 classes when the course ends this Thursday…one because Little Brother was sick (and Prince Charming was out of town) and the other because we chose to participate in a family event organized by our church. Even though I have appreciated the class and gained some knowledge and insight about photography, it hasn’t been quite as organized as I had originally hoped.
Thankfully, about the same time that our class started, I stumbled upon Learn & Master Photography. I contacted the company to see if they might be interested in a timely review and giveaway of their product. They gracefully obliged.
I am honestly BLOWN AWAY by this program…and I haven’t even finished all of the sessions yet! Whether you just like to casually take pictures with your dSLR camera or whether you are a relatively experienced photographer, everyone can learn something from this program!
The Learn and Master Photography Program includes 22 sessions on a 15-disc DVD set as well as a a full-color lesson book and unlimited access to the student support site. The sessions range from anywhere between 40 minutes and 70 minutes. Prince Charming and I have watched a few of the sessions together and even he is super-impressed with the quality of content within the videos. And the lesson book is exceptional even on its own!
From their website:
“Learn & Master Photography will teach you all you need to know in order to capture perfectly exposed, well composed, emotionally exciting images. Professional photographer, Vince Wallace, has designed each interactive lesson to give you a solid foundation as well as the real “tricks of the trade” that make for excellent imagery. Learn & Master Photography contains 24 sessions on 15 professionally produced instructional DVDs, 2 photography sample CDs (containing editable hi-res images used in the course sessions), a thorough Lesson Book that follows the sessions, and access to the free online student support site. It is the only instructional package you’ll ever need to master the art of photography. After completing this course, you’ll see the world through the eye and lens of the photographer.”
The course walks you, step by step, through the fundamental elements of photography. From the lenses you use to the design elements that make photographs appealing to the human eye, this course covers it all. There are even “On Location” sessions featuring tips for specific shooting techniques, including: Motion, Man-Made Motion, Motion in Nature, Landscapes, Low-Light Scenes, Outdoor Candids, Portraits, and Studio Lighting.
Here are just a few of my favorite aspects of this program:
- You can learn as much as you want or as little as you want! Complete the program in its entirety or watch a few sessions here and there…it tailors to your photography endeavors by allowing you flexibility.
- It is on DVD, so you can stop and start it depending on your schedule.
- Even though it is a DVD program, it is still interactive (especially if you utilize the support site). You even have photography assignments after many of the sessions.
- If you forget something that you learned…you can always go back and watch the DVD again!
- The instructor is great. He presents the information in bite-size pieces, always giving examples of his own amazing photography and clarifying when he foresees any misconceptions may arise.
