By popular demand, Michael The Maven has taken the very best content of his "Advanced Photography Techniques" workshops and has assembled them in this truly unique and awesome training DVD. Unlike his many other DVDs, this is not a crash course for beginners. This DVD assumes you have a working knowledge of your camera and are looking to improve your skills as an intermediate or advanced photographer.
"It's essentially a collection of my best tips and tricks that took me about 10 years to learn, all the little things here and there that have added up and can really make or break an image." Michael said in a recent interview. "...but the most valuable part of the DVD, is the model shoot sequence at the end, where I take viewers out on a shoot with me, and explain what I am doing and why, as I take the pictures. It's the first time I have been recorded on a shoot explaining my thinking processes and shooting strategies. Our test viewers raved about this more than anything else."
One reviewer, John S. said "I've seen nearly all of Michael's DVDs, in my opinion, this is his best. I have always wondered how he is able to get such great shots with so few attempts and now I know. It's a gold mine of information."
If you feel you have mastered your camera and are looking for new weapons to add to your photography arsenal of skills, this is the DVD for you!
Run time is approximately 3 Hours and 38 minutes.
