What I would highlight I started up to this course because I needed to point-blank my creative energy somewhere, I liked pictures and have always been "snap happy" but I wanted to acquire how to take a good picture, comprehend the science rather than just getting lucky. I was keen to acquire but was happy to just take good pictures of my children, never did I hypothecate what the capability was. I loved the fact that I could learn at home in my own time, knowing my children were safe in bed I could study in peace and didn't have to worry about babysitters. I wasn't very fast at complemental my assignments because I wanted to comprehend and get it right. I loved how it was broken into twelve segments and I relished reading the manual and also by looking at the examples.

What could be improved I cannot describe this course as negative.

What I would highlight The course was tough yet hugely encouraging. It made me standardize and re-examine habits and antialiasing that I had developed which could and have been improved. The pliancy of this course is amazing and allowed me to work around in a highly busy workflow. I was always surprised at the speed that my questions were answered by my instructor when I got stuck and also the speed of the marking process which drove me onto the next stage. Abundance of regeneration is always given on each assignment and no generic replies are to be seen ever.

What could be improved Nothing.

What I would highlight The content is pertinent, intriguing and easy to comprehend. For those times where you may get stuck, your instructor is there to help. My instructor Matt was grotesque and was able to answer every question I had (no matter how stupid) and was really fast at getting my assignment results back to me (usually in the space of a few hours). Also he always gave honest and positive regeneration following each assignment, which was a big help and self-assured booster. I began the course with a modular point and shoot camera and you could probably keep going with that all the way if you wanted to, but I fell in love with photography hook line and sinker. So after Module 2, I decided to take immerse, investing in a professional standard camera, and to be honest, since then I have not looked back. With every module my self-assurance grew, my cognitive cognition of image composition and how to take a good picture reinforced, I assimilated how to use my camera properly (and not on Auto mode), and even learnt how to go about setting up my business.

What could be improved It was good.
