Learn & Master Photography - On Sale!How would you like to learn photography tricks from an expert for a fraction of the regular price? I don’t know how good photographer you are, but speaking from my experience, a stunning picture takes more than an expensive camera. My problems are the following: wrong focus, improper exposure, dull landscapes and many others which I can’t even name. I imagine some of them are easy to fix, if you know what to do. DSLR cameras have so many settings! It feels like one needs a lifetime to learn what does what.

I just ran into an opportunity that will interest you: the Learn & Master Photography interactive course on DVD is available for $119. The offer is valid until May 16th. After that, the price will go back to $249. The course contains 15 DVDs, two sample photo CDs and a lesson book, plus free access to the student support website. If you want it, you better take advantage of this week’s offer and save $130.
