Excellent Presentation

Methodical, well-done presentation broken down to very manageable parts. Will be very valuable in a review on an occasional basis. Highly recommended.

Great class for learning camera flash photography

This class exceeded my expectations! Neil's teaching style; pace, demonstrations, and organization of information is superb. I am new to photography and have a good understanding how to use my dslr in manual mode, but stuggle to get proper exposure in low-light indoor settings and harsh outdoor lighting conditions. This class helps by teaching how to add a flash to get proper exposure.

Well explained,Methodical approach makes this complex subject seem easier, not easy!! But I am getting to grips with it now after years of being in the dark.
Thank you Neil.

Simply a Wonderfull Class for the Speedlight Challenged.

Terrific class for anyone struggling to use on camera flash effectively. I feel like I have a solid technical foundation in available light photography. But I've not been real happy with the results I get using flash. This class is just like opening up a toolbox full of useful techniques and tips. I'd add that I think Neil is a very effective presenter. I'm going to buy his book and watch his class on off camera lighting. I'd give it 10 stars if I could rate it twice. Highly recommended.

Neil presents the material in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. He demonstrates multiple techniques and scenarios, comparing pictures side-by-side to clearly illustrate results.
I recommend this class for anyone who is interested in improving their flash photography
