The course was great.

Michael Leeson

I enjoyed it and so did my assistant. You made exposure, aperture, shutter speed and how they relate to each other easier to understand for everyone. Personally I learned more about flash photography with soft boxes as I had never been exposed to that before.

I truly enjoyed your course.

Ryan Terry

Very informative. Getting to work with different types of flashes will help in a dental settings as well as with my family pictures and portraits at home. Thank you.

Highly recommended.

Dagmara Ventresca

The photography course was exactly what I was hoping for and more. I learned what equipment to use, what settings are important, how to play with light, and how to finesse my photos with software. It was a lot of fun and it appealed to my artistic side.

Not only current, but also forward-thinking dental photography techniques presented.

Nicole Armour

This course helped me solve all of my photography problems and injected a heavy dose of inspiration to bring my own dental photography to the next level.

The course was amazing!

Maria Angelica Jalloh

I finally know what the functions of my camera mean. Time to practice! Thanks again Dr Miguel.
