Awesome content for free!!!

Ana Barral


Simply explained so I could understand

Julian Sidney


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

William Stinchcomb


Really simple, step by step understanding of how the exposure triangle works. I had a basic understanding but this filled in a lot of blanks and the terms I hear Youtube photographers use. Thanks!

Ian McKinlay


Many questions I did not pay attention to, but they were all important, which can make mistakes when applying the exposure triangle. An excellent lesson for all levels who have already shot before and those who do not know the basics of using the camera in practice. Excellent course - highly recommended.

Rustamjon Muminov


I found this to be an excellent course. Presented in easy to understand terms and analogies for new & amateur photographers. The flow & breakdown of tutorial followed by quizzes to hone your understanding. I would 100% recommend this to anyone starting out or needing clarification with Exposure triangle & Priority modes

Monette Gardiner

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.

a few things I couldn't wrap my head around finally clicked in this course

Kenneth Sandbank


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


Thank you John for this very helpful photography course. Your educational style was perfect and the information made complete sense to me. After buying a new Fujifilm XT5 I couldn't even take a photo and I felt intimidated by all the dials. Today, after completing your course, I have been practicing with the exposure triangle. I've been using aperture priority, and shutter priority in the garden taking photographs of insects on plants that are in complete focus with a blurred background. I've also taken shots of plants blowing in the wind (crystal clear with no blur) using what I have learned. I am really grateful for the helpful start from your brilliant course. I am excited about learning more from you. Julie Rasmussen

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.

The errors I made was totally on my part. Take your time when reading the questions or you'll make the same mistakes I've made
