I was really looking forward to this class, but was very disappointed. After waiting around for the tech people to get it to work. most of the time was spent explaining how a camera works. Great, but I kept waiting for the same amount of detail about photographing jewelry. It just didn't come. She glossed right over it. Waste of money. Review by nancy (Posted on 9/23/2016)
Don't Buy!
Not well made and very little clear usable information! I take photos for my Etsy shop and wanted to see if I could increase my knowledge and easily take better photos. My photos are better than the few that were shot here. The information was slow in coming and it was not clearly presented. Review by BARBARA (Posted on 11/5/2015)

When I purchased this video, I wanted to learn how to use natural light to shoot jewelry, as the title says. I was sorely disappointed. Over half of this hour long video has nothing to do with using natural light to shoot jewelry.

The video starts off by saying "wait for an overcast day." That is a luxury for many of us who often can't just wait or who live in places where overcast skies are not common. I wanted to learn how to manipulate the light, not bend myself to it.

This video is specifically about DSLR. Most of it is a very basic description of shutter speed, aperture and depth of field. Any photography website will teach you the same in a simple article. During this segment, we are also told several times how confusing or hard this all is, which isn't very helpful either.

I would recommend Jim Lawson's video instead. It really focus on shooting jewelry and setting up shots, regardless of your equipment.
