Thanks a lot for watching one of my fast start camera classes if you've completed this course and you're wondering what do I do next? Because I want more information here's what I recommend if you haven't taken it already. I have a class called the photography starter kit. This is a relatively short three hour class where we go through shutter speeds, apertures focusing depth of field composition and lighting, and this is not in reference to a particular camera, but photography in general a little bit more about the art form of doing it out in the field. And so now that you know howto work your camera, you want to take it the next step to learning more about photography out in the world, and so that would be the next place you want to go. If you've done that one and you want to take it even further than you want to move on to my fundamentals of photography, this is a class that a update on a yearly basis, and it contains what I think is everything a photographer should no have about th...
irty years of experience that I have dumped into this class, and if you really want to dive and deep, this is where we get into the nitty gritty details and talk a lot about everything from shutter speeds apertures to an entire day on composition, so that is that's one of my most popular classes that's that's, one of my favorite classes have put a lot of work that goes into that and that's kind of the ultimate class after that, then we kind of get to more specialized class is something that you may be particularly interested in would be something like travel photography. So I have a class that is particularly particularly geared towards travel photographer. We talked much less about shutter speeds and apertures, and we more talk about dealing with gear and logistics. And how do you talk to people with cultures that speak a different language than you? The next type of class that I have is a nature and landscape class. And so here there's a lot of specialized techniques that landscape photographers are using to achieve their maximum depth of field, and we're going to be covering all of those in this a two day class. So there's a lot of information in here from your camera class. The other direction that you could do is learn more about your lenses. And so very shortly I will be coming out with a class called mastering the lands and this is going to have a class specifically for cannon lenses in the class specifically for nikon lenses. They both used their own very interesting and very sophisticated technology to make some just amazing lenses and there's so many choices figuring out what's the next lens for you to purchase. And how do you use them to get the best benefit? And the maximum sharpness out of each of those images is going to be something that we're going to be covering in this class is gonna be a lot of fun, and should be a great way to follow up a class in your camera, knowing your camera, knowing your lenses and knowing photography is all part of the game for being a better photographer. Thanks a lot.

John is a phenomenal teacher and has a great style and his hard efforts are saw in his knowledge and the detail in his slides. This course was great however I would have liked more from this course. It seemed as if it scratched the surface of the D800 but not really got into the micro details of the features of this camera. In my opinion this is a GREAT course for the person just purchasing the camera. Keep up the great work John.
I've been shooting with Nikon DSLRs since 2007 and I would rate myself as an advanced amateur (I've shot a few weddings and have published material in digital and print forms). I really enjoyed this course because it brought me up to speed in a visual way with the technical advances to the Nikon system. John's a good, systematic teacher and his visuals are very helpful. I actually enjoyed the basics refresher part of the course and the price is very reasonable - this would be a $400+ PD if you went to a day course like this in Sydney, Australia.
I loved this class. I was afraid that when I got my D800 it would take me weeks to feel comfortable with it (I was a Canon user before). But after this class, I was immediately ready to put my old canon away for good. Plus, he walked you through all of the settings so my new camera was set up perfectly. So happy I bought this course
