Featured Testimonial: Online Courses

A student of my How to Shoot in Full Manual Online Course recently had this to say about the course:

Nick Carver's online courses are well worth the investment, his instructions are written and illustrated with the intent of really teaching his students the fundamentals without filling pages with technical garb. His courses are fun, and challenging but easy to grasp. The communication with each assignment is excellent, constructive and you are never left not understanding something. After his How to Shoot in Full Manual course, I finally feel like I really understand how to use my camera and am able to take the shots I want. Excellent course, would recommend to anyone interested in photography!
