very well laid out

This course is the best way to understand the whole basic concept of setting the Exposure. It really helped me.

basant kumar


sequential, progressive and devoid of extraneous information. No information overload.

William Stinchcomb


This course has helped me with the exposure settings. The instructor explained the information well and I highly recommend this course for someone who wants to get away from using the automatic settings. I have also taken one of his courses specific to the Fujifilm X-T3 and I plan to take other courses.

This course helped me understand the basics of photography in such a short amount of time. Its so easy to understand John and the analogies he gives really helps everything stick. Amazing job highly recommend!

Kelsey Jackson


For someone who wants to know the 'why' on camera exposures, this is a great way of introducing the basics of camera settings.

Michael McBride


Concepts very well explained. Good refresher too

Prakash Gurbaxani


Everything was understandable and interesting. Loved it! 5 stars.

Rebecca Mathias


A very clear detailed explanation of the exposure triangle. It was very helpful to have the review questions at the end. I thought I had taken it all in but when it came to answering the questions and applying the information I found I hadn't learned it as well as I thought. So it was good to go over the information again and really commit it to memory.

Susan Shanasy

After watching this course I'm more confident in how to use the exposure triangle

I considered myself more than a beginner in this subject, but it turned out to be food for thought. each and every element of the course was explained to a high degree. I have been a little sceptical of online courses but if this free course is a prelude to the rest of the courses on offer then as a Fuji user I will be looking to expand my knowledge by taking further courses.

Exposure Triangle for Beginners: for decades I've been trying to understand Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, Exposure, Depth of Field, and "stops", to name just a few things. Passively looking at videos on these topics didn't help, nor did people's explanations. Thanks to the structure and content of Mr. Peltier's course, I was actively engaged with quizzes and worksheets and that helped me start to learn these things. This course is a great foundation for me to continue learning and expressing myself through photography.

Louise Pelissier


I'm a complete photography noob, but John's Exposure Triangle course has really helped give me a solid understanding of the technical aspects of the art. I can't wait to delve into more of his courses.

Susie Williamson


If you are new to the Exposure Triangle and would like to have better clarity on this subject. Well, I can say , this course sets the perfect exposure for you. You will clearly understand what the Exposure Triangle is and how it works.

Ronny George


Easy to understand and very informative . Extremely well taught as to why it's. important to know the numbers associated with the triangle and how to manipulate them to maintain. exposure and still get the results you want.
