I highly recommend this course. The hands on exercises and knowledge of the instructor are excellent. A great way to learn your way around your camera to be able to use it to your full potential.

Bought my first DSLR and would not have known all the ins and outs of the camera without taking this course. Very informative, and the instructor was knowledgeable and patient. Highly recommend this course to any novice.
I just completed the beginners course 101 in Kanata for my Nikon D7100. The instructor was George very knowledgeable about our cameras and was very willing to take the time to help understand what we had to do. This is going to make my picture taking lots easier. I will be taking more courses with Henry's school of learning in the future.
I took this course at the Ottawa Hunt Club Rd. location. The instructor was excellent. Great course. Helped me learn my way around the camera's capabilities. I am new to DSLR so really needed help and that is what I got. Thanks
This course was exactly what I needed -- hands-on and geared to the needs of those of us who were there with our cameras. Our instructor, Bob, was an excellent teacher, able to walk us through the material and answer our questions at the same time. Not only does Bob "know his stuff," but he's able to convey it straightforwardly and simply -- not always an easy task where digital cameras are concerned. Bob has a very natural style of delivery, using humour and body language to great effect. I highly recommend this course and this instructor!
I took this course at the Oakville location. The instructor's name was Cyndal and she was excellent. I am new to digital photography (DSLR) so I knew I needed some help. Would recommend this or any of the 101 courses for the new photographer. Can't wait to practice what I learned.
Took this course at the Newmarket location our instructor Martin was outstanding. Many tips and tricks to the use of my camera the D7000. Highly recomended must have if you are new to digital photography which I am. Have signed up for the 201 course with the same instructor.IT'S WORTH THE DRIVE TO NEWMARKET!!
An excellent course to get you started on the road to taking better pictures. I have been dabbling in photography for awhile now and felt I had a basic understanding of aperture, shutter and ISO but wanted to start at the beginning to ensure I had the right understanding. This was a great choice. Our instructor Martin (Newmarket) was very knowledgeable and a great teacher. The time flew by and the information presented was invaluable. I loved that the class focused on a specific camera type as Martin was able to give many tips and tricks along the way.
I will definitely be taking the 200 level shortly.
Instructor: Matt (Ancaster) May 2013. This is a great intro course jam packed with content. The 3 hours will fly by. Despite being an into course, you will definitely advance beyond point and shoot auto modes! Great explanations and samples. Also troubleshooting content to improve your pictures. Matt was fabulous at sharing some practical applications of the various features, always tailoring them to the level of understanding of the students. He also took the time to focus on aspects that students were having difficulty with and provided additional assistance enhancing the course content. Very highly recommended!
This is a great basic introduction on how to use your camera and start to get yourself off of your Auto mode. Barry was a great instructor, explained everything very well and encouraged lots of questions and was there after the course for some additional help. Looking forward to taking the Nikon 201 course as well.
Took this workshop on Sunday with Barry. Great instructor. Will not use auto-focus again after this. Learned so many new little tricks and features. Highly recommend this course. Looking forward to my next workshop :)
Daniel, our teacher, packed a tremendous amount of information in what seemed a short period of time. The 3 hours flew by and thankfully there were pdf class notes available that we could download afterwards.
I thought I was using my Nikon satisfactorily until I learned some other vital options available on my camera. I wish I took this course earlier. If you're starting out, or if you want to learn more about your Nikon, this class is worth every penny.
Thanks Daniel for a great class yesterday! You made what would have been complicated for me to learn on my own, easy to understand!
Highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to get more from their d90' (or 7000 :-). My instructor, David, was fantastic and had an ease in communicating the information to allow me to connect a lot of dots I had encountered along the way. My only regret is not having taken it sooner. Top ratings and thanks to Henrys for having such an excellent program.
I took this course in June 2012 at the Scarborough location after purchasing my first DSLR.
The course is packed full of information and examples that allow you to focus on 1 important area of photography and your camera as not to overwhelm you.
A note of thanks you to our instructed Bob who beyond a doubt has a gift for teaching. His passion, patience and knowledge of photography are truly inspiring.
Great course and I highly recommend to anyone wanting to lean more about the "not so auto part" of your camera which allows you to get more creative pictures.
I got my camera last summer and have been taking 1000's of pictures with it. Thinking I was an average photographer, I was going nuts and just snapping anything in sight. Well I thought I knew how to use the camera but after taking the course today I found out I knew very little about my camera. Mark, our instructor, was very informative, and made the 3 hour course go by real fast. He was very interesting, informed and had many great analogies to help us understand what he was talking about. I strongly suggest people to take this course if you want to learn how to really use your camera.
I've had my D90 for about a year, thinking that reading online guides or going through the manual in detail would help me learn and understand how to use this camera to its full potential -I was wrong.
I'm glad that I finally decided to attend this course because what I couldn't figure out for a year, the instructor, taught in a few hours. He went through how and when to use the different settings, and made sure that we were able to follow along on our cameras. I recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in photography and doesn't necessarily know all the terms that photographers use. Because not only do I now know how to use my D90, I now also understand how to apply the things I learned when using and shopping for other cameras and accessories!
I also attended the DSLR 201: Nikon cameras course and it is an excellent follow-up to this 101 course. However, between the two, I'd have to say that this course made the bigger difference.
Point of the story: take this course if you have a big camera and don't really know what all the buttons do. Put the money you spent on the camera to good use!
I would highly recommend this course for anyone coming from a compact camera point and click world or anyone who has not gone beyond using the Scene mode on their camera.
This course starts with a tour of the most used features required to take and view photos in the Automatic and Scene modes and finishes with taking photos in the Program mode (semi-manual) to correct photos which are too bright/dark or where the colour is not right. The Program mode section of the course covers ISO, Exposure Compensation, White Balance, and when to use your flash.
The instructor is a professional photographer with many years of experience. He did an excellent job of presenting the course material including aiding students during the hand-on exercises.
The course notes were well-ordered and presented concepts clearly. My only criticism would be that these notes include a few more example slides or a summary slide on AF-Area Modes versus AF Modes. The notes are available for download in PDF format and I have reviewed them several times since taking the course and find them to be invaluable.
I'm looking forward to taking the next course in the series.

I found the class very informative. I've been doing photography since I was young and last August I upgraded to the D90. So I've had experience with it for a bit, but this class taught what/where each function/button was, but more important we learned WHERE, WHEN and WHY we would use them. I would highly recommend this to both beginners and avid photographers. I look fwd to taking Part 2.
Thank you Martin for a great class, 3 hours well spent!
Attended: March 2011
Level of knowledge going into course: Moderate (read the manual, previous experience with advanced features of a point and shoot, novice SLR knowledge)
I really enjoyed this course and found that my 3 hours were well spent. The course is a great refresher for someone who has been out of photography for a while as well as someone new to the Nikon feature set.
This course not only taught me how to use each feature on the camera (as an instruction manual could do), it taught me WHY each function should be used and WHEN to use it. It demonstrated what the effects would look like through presentation examples as well as in class participation.
We had Tim Olett as the instructor for this course. I particular found the course was useful because it provided a good review of what all the buttons on our camera do. A good way to prepare yourself is to be familiar with your camera and at least read the user manual. Tim is a very knowledgeable person with a wealth of experience to back him up. He delivered an interesting and interactive course, covering all topics about your camera. I enjoyed the last half of the course where Tim covered topics on Controlling Focus, Flash Fundamentals, ISO/Exposure Compensation and White Balance, which I found has more meat than the first half. Good introductory course overall!
Jim Lamont obliviously knows his stuff. I liked the course except that I would love to have at least an introduction on Aperture and F-stop.
