april photo challengeApril 2023 Photo Challenge Winner

A big congrats to Joanne G. for winning the April Drag the shutter Photo Challenge raffle and a $50 gift card! Just a slow enough shutter speed to add interest and a dynamic feeling to this fun photo.

The May Photo Challenge is "patterns."

What our members think of the Photo Challenges

The challenges inspire me to get my camera out and actually use it! I love the feedback from the community and seeing what others come up with.

Charis L

By being challenged to produce every month a photograph with a different task for each month I am pushed to get creative, especially because you can not dig into your archive but have to go out for ideas and images. By completing these tasks my creative process really did become more effective.

Jos S

John's monthly photo challenges have done more to improve my photography than anything I have ever tried before. I believe that the photo challenges are so useful because they focus on only one specific skill or technique. Then John requires you to actually take a photo using that particular technique for feedback by not only himself but other photographers as well - always insightful! Can't wait for the next challenge!

What others have said so far...

This course helped me understand my camera better. The instructor provides clear and detailed explanations for how to use the camera and the important concepts regarding focus, exposure, white balance, etc. The presentations provide excellent graphics to show how to set the camera and the instructor gives nice examples to illustrate his points. The instructor also provides helpful and quick feedback on assignments. Great class!

Elene Feigenbaum


The course was exceptionally thorough, and the tests were a big plus in retaining course information.

John Heinrichs


Excellent course!

Annemieke van Middelkoop


Wished I had done this course a few years ago, when I started with digital photography. It beholds everything necessary to get a thorough and practical understanding of digital photography, especially with Fujifilm cameras. It would have saved me a lot of time in reading books and looking at youtube videos.

Jos Smeets


This course is very comprehensive covering all aspects of using a mirrorless camera. It uses a variety of ways to engage your interest and allow you to practice and experiment with what is being taught. I would recommend this to anyone new to mirrorless cameras and anyone that wants a better understanding of the technical aspects of using a camera to achieve your creative vision.

Mark Northcote


Fujifilm Camera Fundamentals has jump-started my understanding of the Fujifilm camera system. It has saved me countless hours in learning the Fujifilm camera basics and John has been more than willing to answer my numerous questions and correct my mistakes throughout. He and his courses are an invaluable resource for anyone desiring to learn about the Fujifilm camera systems and photography concepts. This is the best series of courses I have ever found!

Curt Brooks


This is an excellent course. I started a bit intimidated by my new-to-me Fujifilm camera, with relatively weak technical knowledge about photography. I finished feeling much more confident. John Peltier's explanations are easy to understand and provide a solid foundation of information. The modules are manageable in size and well constructed by topic, each building on the last. The opportunity to submit assignments for each module provided a great way to gain practical experience with the concepts. John personally reviews your work and comments on it. I've found myself returning repeatedly to the course downloads and reworking assignments on my own to help solidify my knowledge. In short, I highly recommend Fujifilm Camera Fundamentals. It's had a major positive impact on both my understanding and my work.

Michelle Friars


If you are changing from a DSLR to the Fuji system then this is the course for you! This course takes the frustration out of learning. I wish the shop that I purchased my camera would have recommend this course to me. Previously, I had only shot in auto, now I'm shooting in manual & raw and I understand my camera, the lenses and much more.

Angela Hjertstedt


I found this course engaging and particularly liked the quizzes and assignment as they gave the opportunity to re-enforce what I had learnt.

Peter Hubbard


Wished I had done this course a few years ago. This course beholds everything to get a thorough and practical understanding of digital photography and of Fujifilm cameras. It would have saved me a lot of time in reading books and looking at youtube videos.

Jos Smeets


John Peltier makes it very clear from the onset, that he is 'in your corner' to assist you as you complete his courses. However, he also is clear that one gets out of these courses is directly related to the input. It is obvious that he is a seasoned teacher, providing a learning method to achieve individual goals. I am looking forward to enjoying these courses.

Bob Deutsch


I appreciated that you did not speak too quickly, and I thought you described the fundamentals in a clear and concise way. I am in my 80 year, and find some videos hurried, and confusing. Yours is not. I appreciate CC- a godsend!

Barbara Gibson


Excellent course, clear and thorough presentation of all the material, plus valuable feedback on assignments from the instructor.

Beverly Jay


This is an excellent overview of the Fuji Xseries system plus a great basis photography crash. I highly recommend it and am very pleased I took the time to do so.

Bill Farrell


This is a fantastic course for the foundation of photography and learning your mirrorless fujifilm camera. You learn so much and this course is easy to follow, well structured, and keeps you motivated. Definitely worth the time and money.

Alaina Brown


This is a great course to begin to learn about your new Fujifilm camera. John's teaching methods are excellent and really help you learn at each step.

Curt Brooks


You never know all things always something new to learn

Phil Gibbs



Shadreck Nyamukuvhengu


Very thorough, very detailed, not just for Fujifilm users but for any who are new to digital photgraphy or require more of the theory behind it. The quizzes at the end are great for validation.

Mark Haar


The course was easy to understand and has made me a better photographer

Nathalie Ringstad


Concise, too the point information and instructions.

John Heinrichs


I highly recommend this course. I didn’t know much about cameras when I began, but by the time the course was finished, I had a working knowledge of my camera and felt confident about using all of the various settings. I liked working at my own pace and enjoyed the different ways the material was presented. The exams created the motivation to learn the material, and the assignments added the important layer of “hands on“ learning. It was a great learning experience.

Joanne Gordin


Makes clear the special characteristics of the simulations

Bert Hamelers


The best explanation for how and when to use the Fujifilm simulations. You could spend a lot of time in trial and error determining how to best use the simulations in camera only resulting in frustration. When here it is the best explained and demonstrated uses for the simulation. It just doesn't get any better than this.

Greg Ferguson


Undoubtedly the best review of the many Fuji film simulation with great real world examples. The instructor also clearly explained the5 color science involved in both color and monochrome films. I feel very confident now that I can pick the best Fuji simulation for my particular needs. Excellent!
