Manny is simply amazing on explaining things in a very simple way. If you want to take your exposures to next level, this DVD set is a must have. I can see a lot improvement in my exposures, right from the composition to, correct exposure and then to take a perfect exposure outdoors..
Here are what Manny talks about in each of the DVDs
DVD1: Various compositional techniques with lot of examples..
DVD2: Taking correct exposure and walk you thru photographic triangle and why/how M mode is so flexible
DVD3: About lighting, more specifically without using any expensive equipments and Manny teaches how to take correct exposures under various lighting condition..
Even before watching Manny's DVDs, I was using M mode but after watching DVD2, boy!, I learned a whole bunch of new things and now the number of exposures I throw away has significantly reduced..
A must have DVD set, if you want to improve your photographic skills.
I have become a big fan of Manny and he has a few very good videos in YouTube as well..
Can't wait for his next set of DVDs.
I actually went out and took lots and lots of pictures and I'm still taking more. I bought 2 good lenses and have since revisted parts of the the video. I can now analyze where I've gone wrong, and wonderfully, where I've actually improved my shots based on the instruction in the video.
I wholeheartedly recommend this DVD set, especially for those that want to make the change from point & shoot or automatic settings, but never had the right motivation.
What we like about this series:
1. Manny. Manny is a wonderful communicator. Made some of the more confusing concepts such as aperature, ect. understandable for us beginners.
3. Very well produced. Good sound, videos, examples.
3. Covers all the basics to get you started in photography. After going through the 3 DVD, our picture skills improved immensely. We are now beginner photographers, not just snap shooters.
What we don't like so much:
1. Although the DVD is mean for all types of cameras, it's really most useful for DSLR users.
2. As good as the DVDs are, there are times during the video that we wish we have a live instructors to ask questions.
Overall, we love this DVD series. Great start for the beginner. We'll move onto Manny's more advanced DVDs in the future.
