The photographic approach in the course was simply amazing and helped me to learn a lot of new things. During my course, Mr. Dexter patiently cleared my doubts and shared some important tips to produce good quality renders. With his experience, you will learn different approaches to work on the project.
Special thanks to the people in 4pixos they were simply very sweet and supportive. Overall it's a very positive atmosphere to learn.

The course helped me to have strong confidence in how to approach any project. Though the course was very tough at first, I was curious about the entire process and wanted to give my best.
All my questions were answered patiently and the class interaction is very good. Mr. Dexter is very knowledgeable, friendly and provided a wealth of information that has helped me grow professionally. His way of approaching any project is amazing!
‍In the end, seeing our output result as a print medium is something great and joyful. Priceless moment!
