Anyone used these people before??
« on: February 20, 2014, 08:39:27 AM »
Hi,

I have seen this offer on Groupon and, with my editing skills in need of help, was tempted to go for it.
But I thought I'd ask if anyone has any experience of them?
Personally, I've never heard of them. Not much on them on Google either.

Thanks,

Chris.

Never heard of them, so can't advice on that. I see however, that you do not buy it outright, it's only for twelve months, so you'd have to spend quite some time to master all the ins and outs, before it 'runs out.' And you can't go back later to refresh your memory.

But, it seems cheap.

I personally would rather find instructions on YouTube, or elsewhere on the Internet, or buy a book, so I can sit back and read it at leisure. The library might have books as well.

Cheers R.
That's a good point. At the moment I google a technique or use YouTube and generally speaking that works well for me. I'll admit I'm tempted by the price.

I've got a couple of Scott Kelby books which are good but I must admit I've not use his site for tutorials.
I must have a look, thanks.

found this using Ask Jeeves. Seems like they are not a new operation - but may be getting hit by strong competition as elearning is much more prolific than it was in 1996...
1 body, 1 lens, 1 flash gun, 1 tripod, 1 cable release & 1 filter. Keeping it simple!
(I lied, just got a second lens!)
