Reviewed by Erica L. on 4/8/2018
I bought a DSLR camera but had no idea how to use it other than the preset dials. This class was everything I was looking for. Perfect for a beginner who runs into some trouble getting the picture they want to take. I learned how to adjust light sensitivity, shutter speed, create different depth of field and bettter focus. Definitely recommend.
