    The car seems more geared for the novice to intermediate photographer level. And while it does offer some good tips on pricing, despite its testimonial from Ray Baun regarding its great videos, it turns out the course is really comprised of a handful of text based chapters. In reality, at $40 the course is typical of many offerings these things but not a huge value for the limited amount of content.
