Are you kidding me? why does every forum have someone like this? What I meant was that the class for 2 hours was not worth for the knowledge that was transferred. I picked up more by reading the book and seeing what other people have done on the internet. I could take a 30 hour class and still not know all that I would need to know. I am not claiming to know much at all at this point that is why I posted on this board...
Hey champ, it's not a case of " why does every forum have someone like this?", I was merely pointing out that if you took a two hour basics class, by definition, that's about all you are going to learn - THE BASICS and that two hours is not a long time and appears to go very quickly.
Petersons book is also essentially about the basics too, so did you not think there was going to be a fair amount of crossover?
About all I would be expecting to learn in that time is how to access the camera's menus, what each button does, how to adjust various settings and the exposure triangle - and that's about it.
Any more than that, and its information overload for most people in two hours.
If you already felt you had some idea of the basics, why didn't you take a more advanced class?
Did you ask what was going to be covered before you enrolled in it?
You can't blame whoever was conducting the class for not knowing that you knew a bit more than they were teaching.
You were the one who chose that particular class.
What didn't they cover that you thought they should.
