Excellent training. I love the way you folks transmit your volumes of knowledge to us. Easy to learn and follow. Beautiful job.
I advanced by leaps and bounds in both my photography skills and Photoshop skills. Varina and Jay are great teachers!
Varina and Jay will go the extra mile in making sure you understand the concepts.
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.
Jay and Varina do a great job of instructing through your video’s. I’ve brought some other big name Landscape photographers but Visual Wilderness Video Tutorials are much better quality!
And thanks for making such awesome Videos Courses! These have been a huge help in my photography development. 😉
Like all other educational material that you’ve produced, the Essential Filter Course is simply wonderful! You both have the gift for imparting knowledge in a simple and straightforward manner.
Your head is blown away by the amount of things you finally start to understand.
I have to say, you both are great teachers. I’ve learned so much from The Ultimate Landscape Photography & Focus courses I’ve purchased.
I have tried many hyperfocal distance tutorials, but none explained so well as you did in The Ultimate Landscape Photography Course. Thanks again for your help!
Thank you Jay and Varina . Another great collection of instructional videos. I watch a lot of videos and you two are really the best in giving useful information.
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.
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’ve never seen training material this high in visual quality, formal presentation, knowing what’s important to present and how. I hope you keep on expanding your Landscape Photography Video Tutorial output and set even better standard.
I have benefited immensely from your instruction on hyper-focal distance, and on stacking, photos to attain sharp focus throughout the scene. Your enthusiasm for your work is contagious. I appreciate the influence of your vitality in my photography.
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! 🙂
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.
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!
Once again, a wonderful course (Getting it Right in Camera) that you have created here, in stunning locations, and by means of your intuitive style of teaching all the concepts and techniques can be properly digested. The case studies provide invaluable insights in how you work your cameras and the thought processes behind creating those wonderful images – easy to follow and replicate for your students.
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.
All-in-all, The Essential Filters Course along with the others in this series, are the most informative and easy to learn instruction I have taken. I am a complete fan of Jay and Varina and love their instructions.
Essential Filters Course would have saved me from frustrating photos that were a result of using filters wrong or not understanding when and how to use them. Another great tutorial series from Jay & Varina.
Hi amazing people at Visual Wilderness…Two thumbs up on your Histograms Exposed Course.
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.
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.
You offer an incredible photography learning experience. With two terrific instructors who are great to learn from, and fun to be with, I couldn’t ask for more.
I appreciate your combined abilities to teach me at my level on the photography learning curve.
I thank you for your knowledge and practical walk through of the location and thought process with the final shots. This is a really well structured and explained course (Behind the Lens). It has given me the confidence to go out and explore and push myself further than I have ever expected to achieve.
I love the Visual Wilderness Video Courses! And you have great customer service as well 🙂
