It's a very good course for beginners and I got to learn a lot and improve my photography in every way possible! I recommend it to everyone who's interested in Photography and want to do more with it.
This course was very informative and provided just the right amount of challenge for me to stretch my creativity and newly obtained knowledge. I enjoyed it and I am looking forward to the next course.

Jamás te arrepentirás de tomar este curso! En mi país había realizado previamente un curso de Fotografía Básica, del que había quedado bastante inconforme. Fue entonces que decidí tomar este curso de la Universidad Estatal de MICHIGAN, y resultó ser algo completamente diferente. Con este curso aprendí a conocer las reglas y fundamentos de la fotografía profesional, a sumergirme más en toda la historia y desarrollo de la fotografía. Y, a pesar de que hablo idioma español y las clases están completamente en inglés, no existe impedimento para comprender cada detalle que los profesores amenamente van explicando, porque el curso está correctamente subtitulado y lo puedes encontrar en un montón de idiomas. Los profesores Glendinning y Sullivan demuestran mucha calidad en sus conocimientos y a través de sus lecciones uno va aprendiendo a sentirse en confianza con su cámara, a sentirse un verdadero fotógrafo y amar la fotografía como una verdadera expresión del arte. Este curso me ha motivado a seguir aprendiendo sobre la fotografía y a nutrirme de todas las disciplinas artísticas. Gracias a este curso me siento completamente inspirada a hacerlo.

Just being the 1st of 5 courses, it is very complete! Very personally I thought that I would not see anything new but how wrong I was. Photography being a hobby that I have had since I was very young, as of today this course gave me more desire and a lot of knowledge that before I did not give it due attention! Ways to see, different points of view, a better understanding of terms and how to see behind the scenes! I am really satisfied and happy to have two great teachers and photographers fully dedicated to this: Professor Peter Glendinning and Mark Valentine, needless to say, I took the time to see their works and captures and how good they are!

This course inspired me.
It is very well organized: informative videos, many intermediate tests to help you remember new information. And, of course, the most important thing here is the photo creation tasks. It was always very exciting to do them, write comments on the work of fellow students and read reviews on your own. For me, the number of tasks was just right for the first year: not too difficult, but it already pushes me to practice using my device and look for beauty in everyday life.
I'm looking forward to the next course.

Professors create, discuss, and teach great content. Great course to take to refresh a photographers knowledge - or one who is just beginning. The peer graded assignments were particular favorite part of the course - allowed me to see what other fellow peers were taking; and to have validation of your own work. Anyone reading this and who are planning on taking it - please take your time to give feedback - it's what most of us are looking for. Constructive feedback to make us better.

IT WAS BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS.
Their experience gave the opportunity to enjoy the lesson.
The method of teaching their subjects was appropriate and very informative.
The information they shared with us and the way it was done was perfect. The subjects were carefully selected and the audiovisual material, very friendly and understandable.
They offered a substantial opportunity to apply what was taught during the course.

I love taking photos. I care to organize them. I used to view the activity more like a mean of personal discovery and I was ok with that. . I found the course to be well organized and videos very engaging. The material is relevant so you can go and play with what you learned right away. By getting to know common vocabulary and participating in well designed peer graded assignments I begin to feel much less isolated.
par Albán S O•
I like Professor Glendinning very much. I can see he is talented and enjoys photography and also teaching, which in my opinion makes him a very good teacher. Professor Sullivan's lessons can be a bit tedious or monotonous. He also doesn't give barely any time at all to see and appreciate the aspects of the photographs he is commenting (photographs which I like and can tell they are very good also).

Because of the technology that we have now, it is easy to own a camera and just aim and shoot. Having this Photography course at COURSERA is really a big help in understanding the basic information in Photography. It gives me more technical ability to grow and expand my learning to the passion I love doing the most- Photography. Thank you Coursera and DOST for this wonderful opportunity.
par Maria J K G•
The course is very informative for people who want to learn the technical aspects of photography. The material is helpful for those who want to turn photography as a serious career. It also enables enthusiasts improve their skills that will capture great moments. I highly recommend this course to everyone who wanted a peek on the science and art of taking pictures which tell a story.

par Marcus C•
I thoroughly enjoyed the module. It covered the basics and dabbled in some intermediate topics.
I will definitely complete the other modules throughout the year.
It was a pleasure and an honor to learn from Professor Peter Glendinning and Associate Professor Mark Valentine. I recommend anyone interested in the digital arts to complete this course it's invaluable.
par Dmitrii S•
Although I had some basic experience with photography as a hobby, this course provides a nice possibility to repeat and extend the knowledge which we all might lack in photo production, especially while not related to that field professionally. Friendly attitude of lections by both Peter and Mark also makes a lot of sense while learning is going on. Highly recommend.
I really enjoyed this course. It was exactly what I was looking for to get me better acquainted with my camera and to learn the basics of digital photography. I think the instructors are great at presenting the material in a way that is easy to understand and they create an open, relaxed community of learning. Can't wait to start the next course!
par Teresa G•
The professors are very knowledgeable and make the information easy to understand, no matter the level of photography proficiency by each learner. I realize with the extremely large class size that peer review is the only viable option for student feedback, however, it fell short in helping me find specific ways to improve my photography skills.
par OSCAR F•
This course achieves exactly what it set out to do, which is introduce students to the basics of photography. You will gain valuable knowledge on basic standards of photography, some of the science behind the art, plus nice little tricks the professors gave gained after years on the field. I personally will continue with the remainder courses.
par Haydi D K•
I highly recommend this course to everyone who enjoys photography even just from their phones. I enjoyed this class too much and I felt that a lot of photography mysteries were unlocked to me. I also liked the way Prof. Peter Glendinning and Prof. Mark sullivan explain things to us and we even got to visit Sparti in the campus :)
par Janine Y M L•
As someone who already has a little knowledge about the basics of photography, I love this course because it prompts me to put into practice the knowledge that I have about the aforementioned art through peer-reviewed assignments. The professors in this course were engaging as well, thus making my learning experience fun.
par Vangelis D•
I really enjoyed this course.
It helped me understand the basic rules of the camera. I can't wait to continue to the rest courses!
I want to thank you everyone in Coursera, and especially the two teachers, Mr. Glendinning and Mr.Sullivan who gave me the opportunity to start my journey to the world of photography!!!
par Christopher M•
Really enjoying the pace of this course. The video sections are easily digestible! I like the assignments and my classmates and I are learning to critique. It would be nice if the instructors could do some critique for the students who are paying for the full program including the Capstone project at the end.
par Joe M•
This is the best course I've ever taken on Coursera. It's the second one I've finished after trying to start many, but I became unmotivated very quickly with the others. The professors in this course explained things very clearly and made the material interesting. I'd highly recommend this course to others.
par Camilo H V G•
It is a beautiful, multidimensional course, it makes you grow as a photographer and as a person.
The videos are clear and concise, Professor Peter explains in a fun and entertaining way.
I will continue with the second part of the specialization, very enthusiastic about the topics that I am going to learn
par Rebecca O•
I learned so many useful things in this class and it was well worth taking! It got me thinking about my photographg and what I want to capture and how. It gave me the opportunity to learn a little more about setting up my camera as well as the differences between many types of popular cameras.
