Overall is a great course for complete beginners. For those who is somewhat familiar with DSLR cameras 1/3 of the course material will be spent on some basics that you already know such as f-stops, shutter speed and ISO settings discussed separately one from another. This may leave you without complete understanding in which order you adjust these settings based on your particular application to get the best result. I would like the presenter to spend more time to cover more important clinical questions such as tips for mirror and contrasters manipulation, tips for efficient file transfer and organization of image library, important details in differences between lighting setup between major photo equipment brands.
Very helpful

This course provides just the right level of technical detail for anyone to start taking reproducible standard clinical photos. Photography, much like dentistry, is an art and we need it to communicate our work more effectively and of course to celebrate our art. Excellent education. Thank you.
Terrific ! Great dental photo course !
