    DVD The year was 1984 and I was ten years old. That was the year I got my first camera. It was a black 110 with a shiny green light that lit up on the top when you turned on the flash. That was the moment I found my life's calling. I was, from that very moment, drawn to the bright light of a flash, the smell of the film, the feel of the camera against my face... I was an addict, and this little black piece of heaven was my drug!
    DVD fLASH FORWARD 25 YEARS AND TWO CHILDREN LATER. I now have my own portrait studio( just opened) and would love to learn even more. Winning this DVD package would be so amazing! Wish me luck!

  • Scott Boyer January 2, 2010 03:00 am

    I would also like to win the DVD. As an aspiring photographer, I would benefit greatly from this collection. Starting out is hard when you're learning how to use your camera, pick your best shots, edit and the whole process. It helps when you can see what others do, so you can get an idea of what to do. I believe that photos that we take are sometimes dicarded, when they might be very good, it's just that we don't see what professionals see. That takes time and experience. Everyone sees things differently, people like photos that I don't see as being good and they don't like what I see as good. SRBoyer

With this one event you can capture intimate moments, laughters and tears, the emotions of lovers, family and friends; of different culture and beliefs; from solemn to funny, from formal to sexy, poised to drunken abandonment. There is no other photo opportunity where you can cover the whole range of human emotions but with wedding photography. I am a great fan of Dennis Reggie, MIke Colon, Buissink, Lacour, Bambi Cantrell, Ascough, Jasmine Star, Beckstead, and Ed Pingol. I want to pursue and become a wedding photographer and with this DVD kit, hope to become a good one.

So I always carry my camera and I say snap away!! God Bless!

I would like to do with my limited budget is what I love: photography. My fees have been too low for me to make any real money.

Now with the children grown and in semi-retirement I am excited about my refound passion.
    Looking forward to winning.
    Regards,
    Mike Whelan

  • DavidK January 1, 2010 02:16 am

    I bought a Nikon D5000 this year for two reasons. The main one was to photograph my son who has recently developed a passion for playing high school lacrosse. The other was to take pictures at my nephew's wedding last July. This is my first SLR camera of any kind. While the pictures I've taken have been okay, they're really not what I would like to produce. Despite my inadequacies, I do enjoy photography and would like to take my skills to a higher level. Although the local community college offers photography classes, I do not have a lot of extra time to take these because of my job and family commitments. Winning this set of DVDs would be a great opportunity for me to improve my skills and perhaps move into a second career.

    Like many, as I travel forward with my interest in photography, I find myself becoming more critical of my work.

    No longer satisfied with just "okay" results, I've made a commitment to building skills, knowledge and technique so that I may produce the best work that I am capable of doing.

    My step-son's wedding is coming up in the fall and I want to do the best I can for him.

    Your DVD would be a valuable tool towards attaining these goals.

  • Steven Smith January 1, 2010 01:26 am

    I bought my first 35mm SLR from earnings as a junior in high school and had dreams of pursuing a career as a professional photographer. As things happen, life took me in other directions but, at 54, my wife has endulged my desire to take a more serious approach to developing my photographic skillls. (She may, of course, be thinking of how to keep my occupied in retirement!) I'm sure this DVD set would be an incredible aide in building my photographic skills, and hope to win it. If I don't win, I'm very excited to have found your website two weeks ago and intend to use it frequently.

  • CGreer January 1, 2010 01:25 am

    It would be amazing to win this DVD. I am amazed how I improve each time I incorporate additional knowledge into my photography. While I can't imagine that there is better information available than is already here on the DPS site (blatant kiss up but I have no pride), if DPS is recommending this DVD it must be great.

    I hope you have a as great a New Year as I will have after finding out I have won the Mike Colon Education DVD! Happy New Year!

    Where do I start. Your DVD would definately get me started on the right foot with weddings.

    For the love of god and the sake of the children, don't !

    But if you insist, I'll take one, thank you !

  • George December 31, 2009 11:10 pm

    I've recently discovered photography and whilst there is plenty of information helping me learn on the internet it does not quench my thirst for knowledge. By the description of the DVDs it certainly looks like I could benefit a whole great deal from this great set. More importantly there are a few weddings of friends of mine coming up this and next year and I'd like to give my friends great photos for them to reminisce about their special days forever.

  • Scott B. December 31, 2009 04:49 pm

    I want to win this DVD set because not only will it teach me invaluable information to further improve in every aspect of photography, but once I've finished watching all the discs I plan on actually photographing them. That's right - I'll have learned enough after watching the set that I'll be able to prepare and photograph the discs in such an amazing and intriguing way that sales will ultimately skyrocket, therefore making up for the cost of giving me the DVD's in the first place.

    Come on guys, obviously I'm talking about a serious win/win here!

  • Sheri December 31, 2009 04:49 pm

    Wow what would be more awesome then to win this awesome educational DVD. I am a newbie to photography and forums like DPS have taught me so much that I would love to win to learn more.

    I'd love to win this DVD set since I'm a very visual learner - so instructional DVDs seem like a natural resource and wedding photography is of great interest to me.

  • Steven Rieger December 31, 2009 03:29 pm

    Why I want to win this DVD. Pretty simple actually. I have a passion for photography. I mean I LOVE it. It started out with my love of post production. I can spend hours and hours on one picture in Photoshop. Digital media is my thing.

    Pretty soon I ran out of images to tweak and I had to start creating new ones. So I started with a simple point and shoot digital camera and several years later I am shooting with a brand new D300. Still trying to learn how to use the darn thing.

    My biggest challenge though is not the technical stuff. I get F-Stops, Shutter, ISO etc. My issue is more composing and lighting the pictures properly. I really need help to get the most out of my pictures. In addition, I am looking for some help with the workflow. I have read and tried various workflows but I still find it cumbersome to manage. I have over 15k images already so I could use some help.

    Hope to hear from you soon!!!!

  • Linda Abbott December 31, 2009 03:28 pm

    The DVD will hopefully fill in the one area where I have very little information...lighting! Have lights. Need DVD!

  • Erica December 31, 2009 01:32 pm

    I've been yearning to get some more education on all aspects of photography but it's always so hard to find the time (and money) to attend formal classes. I love the idea of doing it via DVD. Besides being able to go at your own pace, you can always go back over the information to help the lesson sink in or just to refresh your memory.

  • Bobi Murray December 31, 2009 01:12 pm

    Since I was in High School, I have wanted to become a technically proficient photographer, (I have taken thousands of photos in my lifetime and have been told I have a real gift) but my plans went on the back burner to put my husband through school, then motherhood (of three kids), college and I said as soon as the last one graduated that THEN the funds would be available for ME to go to photography school! The economy hit rock bottom, we lost our business. I still take lots of photos and get lots of request (by word of mouth) to do photo shoots of babies, high school seniors, engagements but I lack confidence because I don't know the technical parts of the camera and lighting. This course would be a dream come true!

  • Nauman Abdul Hafeez December 31, 2009 01:12 pm

Although personally I have a wedding phobia, I took my camera to my stepsisters wedding this summer and I totally got carried away. I took candid shots for them and they used one on their wine bottle label for their second ceremony in Tuscany and another for their thank you cards! I am no longer afraid of weddings and actually would like to photograph more of them. Of course I would love to learn from one of the best first! :)

    Hi,

    I would really enjoy having these DVDs. I am a beginner in photography and I am striving to learn new techniques. If I had these DVDs it would help me to become a better photographer. Photography for me is a hobby as I am disabled and it gives me something to do. I have very limited resources to purchase books and things to learn from. I tend to learn better by watching rather then reading. So these would be a great help in the learning process.

    Thank you for your consideration

    Mike

    I think weddings provide such great opportunities for a photographer to grow in his art because it provides chances for portraits, action shots, low-light shots, close-ups, and even wide angle shots. As a hobbyist photographer looking to venture out into the brave world of wedding photography, I would love the privilege of learning from the experiences of one who has shot a myriad of weddings. With this DVD set, I in turn would find more ways to improve my art.

    Friends and co-workers have asked me over the years to photograph their weddings. They were on shoestring budgets and I usually only charged them a bottle of champagne (shared onsite). I would love to do the job as good as possible and leave these couples with great and lasting memories. Sharing their celebrations is exhilarating.
