Any photography course worth while?

Hi,

I am a newbie and this is my first post on the site. Hello All!!!!!!!

About six months ago I bought a Digital Rebel XT and a couple of lenses. Since then I have been playing with it without knowing much what to do. From time to time I shoot great pictures but this does not seem to happen frequently enough.

I am now considering taking a photography course, however since I am also doing an MBA and working at the same time I wanted to check if there is any online or study at home kind of course that could help me out.

Do you know of any course that would be worthwhile?

I saw a study at home course advertising on the internet from the New York Institute of Photography. Any of you have previous experience with them?

Just looking from some advice from all you professionals. I am not looking to make a living out of photography; instead I just want to do it as a hobby but want to do it in the right way.

Thanks!!

I wouldn't waste my money on NYIP. You can learn a lot more from this forum. Read the stickies at the top of each forum and check out other sites, such as Luminous Landscape for information. Also read "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. That book will help you more than any other in terms of using a DSLR.

Welcome to the group! The best way to learn (MHO) is to read as much as possible, and don't be worried about trying something different. This is a great place to get ideas and to ask questions. Remember there aren't any dumb questions, you might get five or six different correct answers. We all enjoy a new member, they also may have new ideas themselves.

Forums are a great source of information and a great place to ask questions.
There are plenty of books on the subject of learning digital photography.
And there are a few places online that offer courses, like www.betterphoto.com (external link). They have some pretty basic courses you could start with, and they're not too expensive.

You can learn directly from Bryan Peterson himself at his online photography school. www.PPSOP.com (external link) (Perfect Picture School of Photography)

I've submitted my photography to a few contests and did get involved in two similar to that. The first one I was scared I was getting taken and thought I was going to have to report them to the BBB, but they did come through and I did get my book. When I did get my book I was really let down on the quality of the book. Now when I found out what the "Photography Vibes" was going after for it's content...I was really alot more happy about that one. It was asking for more than one contribute to see if you had what they wanted in their book. They also want to know about you and want to know what made you into a photography...it really made me think this was a better book. Of course I won't get involved in anymore of these kinds of books but I'm glad that this one isn't like the first one, because that first one was really poor in value. It had pictures of people's gradchildren that was washed out that you could really tell they were paying to say "Look at my graddaughter in a book"...made my beautiful photo look bad.
