Joel Sartore put together a thorough course that is very instructive, accessible, and down-to-earth. He gets at the basics of seeing and recording what you've seen. He covers the basics thoroughly at the start, but there is no mystification and tech-talk mumbo-jumbo. Then he moves into the enjoyable stuff. A really good course.
Fundamentals of Photography II follows Fundamentals pf Photography. It is a GREAT addition to continue on how to take great pictures. Joel Sartore does an excellent job teaching from what he has learned from experience.
