Now I'm happy with changing apertures, ISO's and even white balance. it is going take a lot more practice to become confident, but I'll get there.

I am in the third week right now and love every minute of it. I like the way you present the subjects. I also like how you bring in the 7 building blocks to create a photograph.

I certainly would recommend this course to total novices and to people like myself who need to consolidate the knowledge that they have attained over time.

I understand my camera settings. I understand metering, FINALLY, and how and when to shoot in manual and how and when to use which depth of field and focal length. I'm practicing regularly and enjoying it.

[I would] wholeheartedly [recommend 7 building blocks of photography]. Well, I wish you had been around 40 years ago. My life would have taken a different path had you been so. You teach the basics very well and your enthusiasm is infectious.

Ultimate Beginners Course is the price of a lunch for two at our local posh cliff top hotel and worth so much more than that as it gives you a skill for a lifetime.

My greatest achievement is that I am taking photos again. Not just any photos, great photos. I had my tripod since 2016. but I did not use it till I starting Mike's 7BB course.

If you are someone who is keen on learning photography, if you are an old pro who wants to brush up, or if you are anywhere else in between, look no further than Mike. His YouTube tutorials empowered me to build a foundation of knowledge around how cameras work why they do what they do and how to use the settings and my brain to take pictures.

I think Mike Browne courses are tops - it is hard to get going at 70 all through life, it is hard to learn new things but Mike and the 7 steps make it so easy and fun to do, it is like having him sitting next to you.

Each week I look forward to the next lesson. I found it like having a birthday each week unwrapping (or I should say downloading) the course and then just putting my earphones in and going through it, with Mike at my side.

Of the four photography courses I have completed, the 7BB is by far, the most useful and beneficial, worth every cent or penny! To use a quote from a well-known sporting apparel supplier: "Just do it" there is so much to gain and nothing to lose.

What do you get when you have access to both Mike Browne and Simon Taplin during one of their Asia photography workshops? Lots of expertise, a photography-focused holiday, and lots of laughs guaranteed.

Hearing that it is ME that makes the photo changed how I create images.  Gone are the days of snap shots.

I most definitely recommend any Asia Workshops run by Mike and Simon. I back that up by registering for the October 2020 Myanmar Workshop as soon as it was announced...

The course covers many aspects of photography to a level of detail which ensures understanding and did clear up many things I had been unsure about.

Getting images good enough to get enlargements printed to hang on my walls is a real joy. (ok and I must admit when someone compliments me on the photo it is a great feeling...)

UBC gives a first-class grounding in the basics of photography. Being an online course you can go at your own pace but the course is 5 weekly parts and the workload is about right for a week.

This was my first photography workshop and I thought I was an intermediate photographer looking to become advanced.  The workshop opened so many possibilities, I realized that I had only just begun.

I didn't understand manual mode or aperature. I did not look for light and had no clue about really seeing a photograph. Now, I understand these skills but also understand that I need to practice and be patient.

The most impressive aspect of his presentations is that I feel as if he is speaking to me personally. No better videos to watch and LEARN.

In 7 Blocks Mike is very good at putting over things and it's easy to understand. I've learnt how to be patient and think before I press the trigger.

There are loads of 'free' online videos but these are useless without first understanding the building blocks of photography first...

Now, I am more relaxed when taking a photo. I realized that there are some things to take care of. I don't feel "guilty" any more taking a photo of the same place, looking for different approaches.

Mike is a great teacher and very down to earth. "The only stupid question is the one you don't ask" I will certainly be saving my pocket money up for his courses. Cheers Mike

Yes, I would recommend the day to anyone.  Great day for anyone who, like me, is a little shy of taking photos in public places.

The exposure examples ("camera gets it wrong!") were really helpful to move from some rather grey photos to better ones. The shutter speed examples enabled me to get some better examples of flowing water. All together this has put me more in control of my rather complicated camera.

I was concerned that there might be a large number of camera geeks and I would have felt intimidated but Mike emphasized the title of the course and the paramount importance of the photographer.

Fab instructor, very personable, knowledgeable and gives lots of easy to understand, practical, and real world advice. Highly recommend Mike!

 

chris-stratfordA light bulb moment was hearing Mike's advice that we should pre-visualise the photo we want the camera to take, not just let the camera take the photo...

CDTP is a thought provoking exercise that gets you looking at subjects in a different way. Light, shadows, reflections and different angles all now play a more important part in taking photos.  Certainly makes you think more before you press the shutter.
