I learned a lot, thanks! Phillip I’m so happy you learned something new from this James! Thanks for letting me know! darkwingdave Looking forward to some great insight from your experience, sir. Phillip I’m happy to offer it Dave! 😉 Todd Yungwirth Hi Phillip. Thanks for putting this photography course together, there is a lot of information here to dig into. A couple of small critiques: There are a few times you go through panels or tools in LR or PS that you don’t use (or don’t understand), I would cut those portions out and focus solely on the tools you do use (because anyone coming to this site knows you make beautiful images). Secondly, although it’s great you walk us through a complete shoot, all the edits end up being very similar and it would be great if there was a bit more variation (although you have other edits on your site that you charge for $, so I’m guessing that’s a business decision on your end.) Thanks again for all this material, I’m sure it was a tonne of work. I appreciate the effort. Phillip Hi Todd, thank you so much for your feedback! No, you didn’t come across as negative, this is exactly the type of feedback I’m looking for. 🙂 I’ve designed the dashboard to be expandable and modified. I do plan on adding/modifying the course after I get more feedback and suggestions, but it will be a little while before I can get back to it. I have a ton of sessions coming up. Thanks again Todd! Jiro Sunohara Thank you so much Phillip. very usefull Phillip You’re welcome Jiro! I’m so happy this was useful to you! Phyllis Benitez Thank you Phillip for providing these free courses. I’ve already found it useful with the intro! Maybe now I can “take my camera off auto” and learn to take more meaningful pics, the way I envision them. Phillip Haumesser Great to hear it Phyllis! Once you start understanding manual it opens up a whole new world! 😊 Phillip Haumesser You are must welcome Phyllis! I’m so glad the video was helpful to you! Phillip Go for it Phyllis! I’m rooting for you!! 😀 Scott Plumer It’s “patience.” “Patients” are what a doctor has. Phillip Haumesser Thanks Scott! This is why I’m a photographer and not an English teacher! 😜 Phillip Haumesser Lol! That’s why I’m a photographer and not an English teacher! 📸😜👍 Bill Morkan These are good problems to have Phillip. Andrey Agree! Phillip Haumesser Hopefully the last problem! 😉 Janu “FREE escuela” Garcia sorry i have it in the mail, its my fault Phillip Haumesser No problem Janu! 😉 Phillip Haumesser Andy, check your email, it will be in there. Phillip Haumesser It’s case sensitive, so make sure it’s exactly how I sent it. Try copy pasting it. Shani Marshall Your work is amazing! Thanks for sharing Phillip Phillip Haumesser Thank you so much Shani! It’s my pleasure! Phillip It’s my pleasure Shani! Julie You mentioned not knowing how much room for pictures was left on your card. I shoot with Sony and I don’t know about your newer camera, but the older ones showed up in the right hand corner the number of shots left, but I believe that was looking through the viewfinder. Hope that helps! 🙂 Phillip Haumesser Thanks so much Julie, yeah, I did know that, I’ve just never paid attention to how much the limit is, and I’m too lazy to check. Lol! Solette Kruger Can someone please email me the manual cheat sheet, still cannot open it wjen downloaded – please 🤗 [email protected] Solette Kruger Thank you Leandri has send me the cheat sheet 🤗 elisabeth_b_83 What a great course! Well worth waiting for. Thanks a lot! Phillip Haumesser I’m so glad you like it Lis! ☺️ Phillip My pleasure Elisabeth! Kasey Przybysz What an amazing intro. I’ve already learned quite a bit. There are a lot of beautiful and articulate explanations. I look forward to watching on. Thank you for taking the time to do this and free to boot. Forever grateful. Phillip My pleasure Kasey! I’m so glad you liked it! 🙂 Jeanette Humphries Radmall This is amazing! So helpful! Phillip Haumesser I’m so happy it was helpful to you Jeanette! ☺️ Phillip Thanks Jeanette! 🙂 Mick Kelly I’m not sure what “raw” is. Is it the absence of limiting file size? Len Hi, When you set the quality of your image, you will see there is a “raw” option (I don’t have a camera now, can’t remember clearly, but it should be there.). Raw pictures always occupy a lot of room. Hope it helps. Ayesha Fahim Ata im not able to view the videos Camila Siebert Altavini Good intro video! I still can´t get used to look the background, but I’m working on it… 🙂 Phillip LOL! 😀 Susan Mcdonough Says I need password. Don’t know what It is Phillip Haumesser Hi Susan, did you check your email? I sent it to you. Louise Malone Amazing intro video ! Do you normally set the shutter speed, aperture or ISO first? Phillip Haumesser Great question, I’ve never thought about it. But I usually try to keep the shutter speed as fast as I can get it and the ISO as low as I can get it. So I guess it would probably be ISO that I set first. Then if I see that I need to speed up the shutter, then I’ll raise the ISO a bit. I hope that answers your question. Phillip I don’t even think about it. It would be different in different situations. SamSeen Its not excepting the password Phillip 😀 Oleksandr Starodubtsev Hi Phillip, I can’t see the video. It seems that the password doesn’t work. Phillip Haumesser No worries, The password changed. I’ll email you the new one in a couple of minutes. Phillip Haumesser Hi Marta, so sorry for the trouble, I changed the password a while back. Send me an email and I will send you the new password. Thanks! Click Fotografía Sandra Esposi Good intro video! Phillip Thank you! Paul I have a question about the Pentax 50mm lens. I have this lens from my old Pentax film slr. I use a Nikon D90, my two main prime lenses being 35mm Nikkor G lens and a 60mm Micro Nikkor D lens. As the Pentax mount is not compatible with the Nikon F mount, is there an adaptor ring that will work, or will this place the lens too far from the sensor to focus to infinity? Phillip Hi Paul, this should work: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_id=114&ipn=icep&toolid=20004&campid=5338030949&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2FOptic-Glass-Pentax-PK-K-Lens-to-Nikon-D7200-D7100-D90-AI-AF-F-Mount-Adapter-Caps-%2F281962064427%3Fhash%3Ditem41a63faa2b%3Ag%3AXMYAAOSwmmxW4qU8 Len Hi Phillip, thank you for the video. However, as a non native English speaker, sometimes I cannot understand what you talked about clearly. Could you please add the subtitle for the videos? I understand it would cost more work, but it would really helpful. Thank you for your hard work again. Phillip Hi Lan, I’m so sorry, but I won’t be able to do that anytime soon. :- Ida Leak Hi Phillip. Thanks for offering this course. I’ve not completed all the videos, but have learned a lot so far; at least re-learned quite a bit. I have a quick question as I consider purchasing editing software. I noticed in your video that you use L ightroom first, then Photoshop, then Lightroom again. Would you recommend my purchasing both programs? If I can afford only one program, which would you recommend? Thanks in advance for your answer. Phillip Hi Ida, thanks so much! I’m so happy the course is helpful to you! I definitely recommend Photoshop and Lightroom CC. It’s $2.50 a week, you wont even miss it! 😉 If you had to choose only one, I would recommend Photoshop because you can do the same things as you could in Lightroom, only there’s a little bit more of a learning curve. Lightroom is easier to use. But I don’t think you can even get Photoshop stand alone anymore. If you’re interested in Photoshop and Lightroom CC, you can get more information here: https://clk.tradedoubler.com/click?p=264355&a=2924947&g=22793594 Silvia Lobaccaro I must improve absolutely my English! :'( Phillip I’m sorry Silvia, I hope you can understand enough. Deanna Loretta D Hi Phillip, I can’t enter into the menu…. Phillip Hi Deanna, what device are you using? If you’re on a computer the Menu will be on the left hand side of the screen and all of the videos should be there. If you are on a mobile device the menu is a drop down button at the top of the screen. Deanna Loretta D Thanks for your quick response I did click on the MENU on the left side of my screen but can’t get in! I am using a DELL computer. Phillip The options are under the MENU. Flávio M. Silva Despite I’m not a native English speaker, I can understand almost everything you said. You have a great stuff here and definitely will help a lot of people who are starting in digital photography like me. Anyway, keep the good job and thanks in advance. Phillip Great! It’s my pleasure! Tanita Dear Thank you so much, Phillip! That is so helpful. I am an artist. So much in common 🙂 Phillip It’s my pleasure Tanita! Shauna Ringquist Hi Philip. My lap top computers do not support the programs that you use to edit the photos. Is there a way to do it on a Chromebook. That is what I use at the moment Thanks! -Shauna Phillip Hi Shauna, yes, you can download a mobile version of Photoshop and Lightroom on a Chromebook: Install Adobe apps on your Chromebook Priyanka Paul Hi Phillip, my name is Priyanka Paul…I’m 17 years and I’m from India….I am very interested in photography and I have taken some using my iPad and have edited using some photo editing app…I would like to purchase a dslr camera…so could u suggest me something as for beginners what should I opt for? Phillip Sure! I always tell everyone, find a camera with a changeable lens that is in your price range and get a lens with a wide aperture, something at or under f2. The Pentax 50mm 1.7 is a fantastic lens! I saw one on eBay the other day for $9.99! This is everything you need to get started. Learn how to take great photos with this set up, and then you can consider a more expensive camera, if you want. 😉 Priyanka Paul Thank you so much😊 Phillip My pleasure Priyanka! 🙂 Priyanka Paul Sorry to bother you again….as a beginner should I first go for point and shoot camera or dslr…????

Inti Hi Philip, this is quite an intriguing course. I have a question, I own a Nikon dslr and recently read that as the Pentax lens registration distance is smaller than Nikon’s, the image quality deteriorates and also the adapter might need to have corrective lens elements in it to allow the lens focus correctly. Just wanted to know what do you think of it and please recommend any good adapter for nikon cameras as well. Thank you Phillip I’m afraid I’m not sure. I’ve never used a Nikon, but I’m sure there are adapters out there for them. I have used my Pentax 50mm 1.7 on crop sensor and full frame sensor cameras and it worked great on both of them without having to crop. Dariusz Phillip. I have just barely started, and this is a game changer for me ! I did not know that my small Sony a5000 would be capable of shots I always wanted .Finally was able to use my Dad’s lenses collection from 80’s which I brought some time ago from Poland.. These include Helios 44M , Flektogon 35/2.4 , Pentacon 50/1.8 ,Jupiter 37A . Manual focus was terrible to get anything sharp. Your tip about focus peaking solved my problem. Also switched to full manual and started playing with it. Lost most of the noise I had when shooting low light videos . I’m in early Lightroom stage right now and love it . So far so good ! Thanks Phillip Hey, I’m so glad to hear that Dariusz!!! Those old lenses are fun aren’t they? 😉 Bjørn Zeiler Hey Phillip, I’ve been looking for photography tutorials for a long time and they’re always so fast-paced, in-your-face or disingenious. The videos you are doing are absolutely fantastic! Very clear explanations, love that you bring in photos you’ve taken and explain why and how. The audio quality is also superb, I feel like I’m in the room with you haha. Keep it up and thank you! Jennifer I had opted for a point and shoot since I take my camera to precarious places, like rock climbing, and didn’t want to risk having a ton of lenses. Not sure if that was the correct move to make :/ Am I still able to use the lenses you recommend with a point and shoot? Phillip Not unless your point and shoot has changeable lenses, which is usually not the case. Sorry! :- Jesi Marie How do I know what the password is? I just went through the confirmation email for the free course, but I wasn’t given a password or given the opportunity to create one. Phillip Hi Jesi, have you checked your spam or promotions folders? You should have received en email with your password in it. If you still can’t find it, send me an email HERE and I will send you a new one. Carolyn Franzone Wiley The cheat sheet only opens in power media for me and I can’t print it. Any other way to get it?
