This course was made in 2012, and it's not very good. I see that Mr. Ebiner has gotten better reviews on other courses, so hopefully, he's improved. His presentation style is full of annoying vocalized pauses, and over-use of the word like. The course contains too much personal information. I don't care if he's recording it in his parents' art studio. I don't care even once, let alone all the times he mentions it that the woman in many of his pictures is his girlfriend. About 40 percent of the course deals with photo editing, rather than travel photography. The part about photography contains some useful information, but it's spotty, and very little of it is specific to travel. He talks a lot about negative space, but if he defined it, I missed that. HIs section on panoramic photos is woefully incomplete. No mention in that section of tripods, remote shutter releases, shooting manually, and in raw format. Many of the photos he uses as examples are flawed as well. Lots of horizons that aren't horizontal. Lots of washed out pictures. Things sticking out of people's or pets' heads. Obvious joints in some panoramas. In one case, his girlfriend's hair apparently holding up the horizon. I consider this course quite disappointing. I look forward to seeing if his other courses live up to their better reviews.

The course moves at a gelatinous pace. Much of the first part is devoted, as another reviewer says, to autobiographical material -- none of which is particularly enlightening, interesting, or useful. It is self-indulgent. This is not a professional-level course. Slides in the course contain sloppy errors ("Tungusten" for "Tungsten," for instance). I wanted to like this course; I wanted a good course that provide insight into the art of photography -- but this is not it. It is a real disappointment; it is hard to believe that Adobe charges money for this sort of amateur production.

Feels like you got trapped at his house and are force to listen to his stores. Very little information. Mostly he's talking about his self and what he has done. Would rate it lower for all the wasted time, but must rate a minimum of 1.

Half of the time the guy is talking about himself. I don't care about him personally. This supposed to be about travel photography. A wast of time and money.
