Excellent training. I love the way you folks transmit your volumes of knowledge to us. Easy to learn and follow. Beautiful job.
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.
Not only are the videos excellent, especially for a beginner photographer like me, but the customer support is the best I have ever had! Well done and thank you Jay and Varina!
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!

CLEAR AND CONCISE – I have just viewed segments 1 – 3 and wow, it is great! Not too much information in one hit, very pleasant to listen to, clear and concise! Your course is just what I have been looking for and I feel ready to launch into Lightroom now. You sure make it seem a lot more user friendly for the beginner.
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 would like to complement Jay, Varina and your Visual Wilderness associates for making such well thought out photo training & guidance videos. They are topical, have a clear structure to help in the learning process and good quality.
And thanks for making such awesome Videos Courses! These have been a huge help in my photography development. 😉
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 advanced by leaps and bounds in both my photography skills and Photoshop skills. Varina and Jay are great teachers!
Several of us were trying to figure out why your tutorials are so excellent. We came to the conclusion that your years of teaching school must be the reason. You’re an excellent instructor and make it easy for everyone to grasp these often complex concepts. Thank you Sean!
I finally felt brave enough to tackle processing an album of photos that I had from a workshop I attended. I was astounded by how much I had learned from your videos!!!! I turned out some fantastic images, beyond my expectations! I didn’t think I knew what I was doing but I have learned a lot.
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 to say, you both are great teachers. I’ve learned so much from The Ultimate Landscape Photography & Focus courses I’ve purchased.
I have been trying to understand Hyperfocal Distance since I first picked up a camera about a year ago. I have had several people explain it to me, but I never understood it as well as I do after watching your tutorials. They are so clear and easy to understand.
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.
I have been using filters for many years and still learned a number of helpful tidbits of information I didn’t already know or hadn’t thought about from the Essential Filters Course. The material is presented in easy-to-digest segments of video that you can sit down and watch all of back-to-back, or if you only have a few minutes you can watch them one at a time. The way the segments are divided makes it easy to go back and find specifics you want to review.
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.
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.
