The fresh perspective and experience you bring to your video courses was very uplifting to me and since I have taken the course my images have really improved. I also have a renewed desire to shoot again. I continue to watch them over and over and find hidden gems in them each time I do.
Histograms Exposed is a great series to unlocking the power of the histogram and the case studies really make things clear with great on location examples.
Your head is blown away by the amount of things you finally start to understand.
Thank you for your Hyperfocal Distance Course. That answered and made it so easy to understand what HD is and how and when to use. Perfect.
VERY EASY TO UNDERSTAND – I found Anne’s video course very easy to understand and the way she broke up each component was perfect, as was the flow of work. There was enough information in each component for a beginner like myself without being overwhelming. The pace of the course was very nice too. It gave a very realistic workflow that made sense.
Please don’t change except to continue to bring the best possible learning experiences to anybody that wants to be the best possible photographer and learn to understand and practice photography to the best of their ability.
I appreciate your combined abilities to teach me at my level on the photography learning curve.
I’ve just finished watching your tutorial for the third time and wanted to let you know how amazing it was! I live on a very small island in the middle of nowhere & don’t get to many photography workshops… so the way I learn is through tutorials. Yours are, by far, the best I’ve seen. LOVED the way you broke it down into little episodes – this gave me the chance the watch one video & then work on my own photos to get it into my head & then move onto the next one!! You’ve made them very entertaining & super-easy to follow along – I just loved it, Thank you!! 🙂
There’s so many free videos out there it’s easy to be overwhelmed. The Ultimate Landscape Photography Course breaks down the fundamental knowledge you need for landscape photography and shows you how to use that knowledge in an actual photo shoot. That makes it a lot easier to figure out where you’re going wrong when you’re not getting the result you’re after. It’s worth every cent!
I have been enjoying your videos from Hyperfocal Distance and The Ultimate Landscape Photography Courses. And I must say you – Jay and Varina – explain photography really well. And I love the humour that you guys bring.
In the digital age we live in, photography is not only about capturing the light, but also proper post-processing techniques. Your videos teach such techniques, and show you how to apply them to convert bits of captured light into a beautiful art.
Excellent training. I love the way you folks transmit your volumes of knowledge to us. Easy to learn and follow. Beautiful job.
This is great! Been wanting to understand and apply Hyperfocal Distance in my photography.
The Hyperfocal Distance Course is excellent and enlightening. It will definitely come in useful when I go to the Yading Nature Reserve in China next week on a photography trip.
Where have you been, Joshua? I’ve spent thousands of dollars in video tutorials like this one. Your video tutorials are the best I’ve ever purchased. It is very easy to absorb and understand. Keep up the good work! I will definitely recommend your video tutorials to all my friends who are learning Photoshop.
PERFECT FOR THE BEGINNER AND BEYOND – Brilliant! Your course is perfect for the beginner and beyond. I have used Lightroom for 2-3 years now and this course was a perfect way to reinforce what I already know and to add to my knowledge base. Your teaching manner is clear and enjoyable. Being a former teacher I value those skills – which are not necessarily found in many online courses! I’m looking forward to more that you might offer in the future.
I have been a fan and beneficiary of your tutorials for many years. They have been such a great help in my photography. You manage to put your views and points across in a very succinct and easy to follow way.
I have to say, you both are great teachers. I’ve learned so much from The Ultimate Landscape Photography & Focus courses I’ve purchased.
It’s difficult to find the words to express how impressed I was with your Photoshop & photography knowledge and your body of work!
I used both Hyperlocal Distance techniques (for playa shots) and fast shutter techniques (for crashing surf) that I learned from The Ultimate Landscape Course. It was very helpful.
I’m enjoying your Creating Impact Course video tutorials and case studies. They’ve really helped clarify a number of areas that have always been a big vague for me – like hyperfocal distance! I’ve also really appreciated seeing your thought process when deciding how to photograph a location and the steps you work through in post processing. Great stuff! 🙂
EVERYTHING NOW MAKES SENSE I had given up on Lightroom due to its complexities, but after seeing Anne’s video course everything now makes sense. The numerous bite-sized video approach helped to get me started again. Anne’s voice is amazingly relaxed & easy on the ear. Lightroom is my go place when I am “cooking” my Raw photos, and now, thanks to the course, my family gets to see the photos I take.
Your teaching approach and the quality of production of your videos are exceptional. I’ve learn a great deal from your videos, please keep up the great work.
Your and Varina’s style of teaching is so amazing. You bring the workshop to my home in lucid and easy to understand style. I have subscribed to many including PPSOP, Lynda…But your team is the best! I have recommended The Complete Ultimate Collection to all my friends.
Hi amazing people at Visual Wilderness…Two thumbs up on your Histograms Exposed Course.
Hey Josh– I’ve been watching lots of Photoshop tutorials on Lynda. com and I learned so much more from yours! I think they are really wonderful. Even better, I love the fact that I could download the files and watch them over again at my convenience. Thanks a million.
I thoroughly enjoyed the video courses by Varina and Jay Patel. Their clear presentation style and real life examples of their teaching enabled me to rapidly understand and put into practice what they were teaching. Their style is quite personal as if you were on site with them. Excellent photography in the examples supports the learning experience. Histograms were always a bit of a mystery. Seeing how to use them to improve my “in-camera” results will enable me to get the results I see in the field.
What I really like is the fact that you not only explain haw to do it but also why. Congratulations, this was a real pleasure for me and I have learnt an awful lot. Regards.
Varina and Jay will go the extra mile in making sure you understand the concepts.
The Ultimate Landscape Photography Course is excellent… I look forward to being able to attend one of your courses or expeditions and working with you some day.
I’d like to take the opportunity to congratulate with you for your Video Courses, I find them very useful and helpful in order to improve in my favourite hobby.
Having Jay and Varina as instructors opens up a totally new perspective to Landscape photography.
You guys did a fabulous job teaching the Essential Filters Course in a fairly easy and straightforward manner that we can comprehend quickly. I have already learned a lot about different tips and tricks just by watching some of your video courses. Kudos to both of you and I deeply appreciate it.
I retired from forty years of teaching elementary and middle school math/science students. As a former Indiana Teacher of the Year and and inducted member into the NATIONAL TEACHERS HALL OF FAME, I know what makes great teachers, and believe me, you and Varina Patel are excellent at what you do because you take complex topics and make them so simple to understand. Better yet, you teach your lessons directly from the field, on site—the very best possible way to teach.
