  • In app purchase prices raised

    By This space intentionally left blank.
    So my review was deleted. Thanks whomever did that! One star because the in app purchase prices, which if memory serves me correct, have changed from .99 to $4.99 each. This wouldn’t be an issue if additional content was added, but hasn’t been added according to friends of mine. I also don’t understand the logic of charging more in the first place. Would the developer buy an app that had the same pricing structure as their own app? That’s what I thought. Charge less and the volume of sales will increase. It’s just that easy.
  • A popular hidden jewel of an app

    By MacDelta
    Whether you’re a beginning photographer, or an experienced shooter who wants to expand their knowledge, this app is worth every penny. A great app for aspiring photographers; it also gives aspiring videographers lessons on capturing the perfect image. I suggest that you buy the only two sections of the app that have an associated cost. One covers location lighting and the other, portrait photography. $6.98 is a more than generous bargain for a informative app. App development costs money, and I’d love to see the developer continue to updating this app; perhaps even creating a second and more advanced app.
  • Great app

    Terrible! wish I knew how to get a refund!
  • Way to basic

    By Dark Horse (NB)
    The free version is so extremely basic my 6yr old was able to master the entire section. Sorry, passing on this one.
  • Loved it from Day One!

    By Sweetie Wendy
    I have read lots of photography lessons, blog posts and watched YouTube videos but they all leave me frustrated because I never really learn anything. And who has time to take a class. As soon as I tried one lesson I was hooked. They teach you about a specific subject with 2 short paragraphs and illustrations and then have you try it. As soon as you try it you’re like AH-HA, that’s what I’ve been missing and BAM you’ve learned a new skillset. Great job creating this app!
  • Really well done..for first timers and pro alike

  • Cannot download after purchasing

    As title.
  • You get too little for the price you pay

    By Jayanta Mondal
    The app is nice. But you need to make a bunch of in-app purchases to learn anything meaningful.
  • Only the basic module works

    Only the basic module loads, the other ones don’t load up
