I found this course to be more on the ethereal spectrum. Most of the topics were geared towards using software to enhance a photo rather than placement and what to do with your camera. I am still looking for that course that delves into more basic instruction like using black and white versus color. Maybe a more in-depth look at the different types of lenses (fixed vs variable, or 72mm vs 52mm). What is a polarizing lens? The instructor did cover some hardware in the very beginning and then during the video on using a flash, but it was not enough. He mentioned a number of other artistic photographers which was interesting. At times it was difficult to watch the videos because the instructor expresses with his hands so much of the time. This was very prevalent when he interviewed a guest artist. At first the guest sat still but as the interview went on he too started expressing with his hands more.
