i want to take one. i've just been lazy.
And there's a great "artsy" school right near my house.
I'm going with the advanced digital photography first. Then I'll roll into portrait, lighting, etc . . .
how 'basic' was the entry level course? how did you know it would be good to skip it?
I want to do this too.
It had stuff like . . . what is a memory disk? What is a flash? How do I transfer my pictures to a computer?
that's what i figured.
I've taken 4 of them and I knew more than everyone in there. The best class I've ever taken was a photojournalism class. It was amazing and I learned a ton.
The teacher had been involved in the industry for 20 something years and helped us get a portfolio together and so on.
I still need to take like another 5 or so, so I can get a certificate or something.
I'll be in the group of knowing next to nothing.
If I can take a semi decent pic in a year, I'll consider that a major achievement.
you have to have taken at least one nice picture by now. POST IT.
You start with photo 8. you have to have a 35mm slr and you learn the basics of the camera and how to develop your own film.
photo 12 is photojournalism. Loved it.
there's a studio lighting class and intro to digital photography where you use a DSLR.
I think there's 10~ classes or so.
Once you complete all of them, you get a photography certificate.
