            This DVD is packed with great information and cool ideas. I am an intermediate photographer and after one viewing I've already taken some great images. It has taken my skills to a new level. All of these techniques, like how to take a sharper image and how to hold your camerea, are things I never would have discovered on my own. Well worth the money!

                This DVD is probably the best purchase I have made as far as photographer (as far as instructional DVDs go). There are really cool photos out there on the internet that I really wanted to learn how replicate (for example, painting with light), and in this DVD, the techniques are explained perfectly. It's clear, it's concise. I probably will buy this DVD again for my friend who is starting in photography.

                Comments about Michael the Maven Advanced Photography Techniques (DVD):

                I went through the 50 different topics included in this video and was unhappy with how random the topics were. So many different techniques and advice, but in such random order...I also was frustrated that all of the settings he alludes to are for a Canon camera - I did NOT know this and probably would not have purchased it if I had known since I own a Nikon.

                Not for Beginners- great for advanced!

                Comments about Michael the Maven Advanced Photography Techniques (DVD):

                Disclaimer: this video is not for beginners. BUT! It is great for those who are familiar with their camera on an intermediate to advanced level. It is also great for those who want to add more creativity to their photos! It is very exciting to see all the amazing effects one can get with JUST the camera (no photoshop). I have always wanted to know how to take photos of fireworks and learn how to paint with light and get someone in the background of it! Michael, your instruction was so clear and understandable! I love the pop-a-flash portion of the video and how you can also use that same technique in macro photography! Thank you for your tips and tricks to help my photos become more creative!
