Photography courses


New member
Hi There!
I am somewhat new to photography..I bought my Nikon D90 a little over a year ago, and have purchased an assortment of lenses..and acessories. I have just been playing around with it and have taken some "okay" pictures. I have decided to take a course and was wondering if anybody has heard of the photography's an online course. Has anybody taken it, or heard of anyone taking it??

Hi, Carolyn and welcome to the forum!
You might try any local community college in the area or other university as fotojack suggested. If you're interested in an online class, non-degree, to get you started with the nuts and bolts of digital photography and post-processing, you might try Online Training for Photographers, Graphic Designers, Illustrators, Multimedia Artists, and Hobbyists | Kelby Training
I think they even have a whole video tutorial on the D90.
I've not heard of the photography institute so I couldn't say.

Best Regards

I also think that investing in a course at a local community college or even joining a photography club would be a better investment. Though if you live far from civilization (I can relate) this is a lot easier said than done, which makes online learning even more appealing.

I'm a 35 yr old single parent, and have been working towards a college degree for the last 2 yrs by taking most of my courses online. Distance learning can be difficult, because it's 100% self-directed. Make sure that you set aside time each day to work on your projects! I really like the online setup because it allows me to do things in my own time.

Let us know how it goes, keep us posted!
