    I'll be honest and say over the past 1-2 years, I wondered why/how your photos were getting better and better. So your increased knowledge has shown in your work. If you are still trying to see things creatively, take a look at this book. It uses wedding photos as its samples, but the real learning is when someone takes the concepts and applies them to their own types of subjects/genres. I have a teaching degree (music), and in my opinion, this book is one of the best when it comes to teaching the concepts. It takes different photography concepts and breaks them down. At the end of each chapter, there are assignments where you go out and apply the concept(s) taught.

    Congratulations. Sending in images for critique isn't easy.
    I too, like @hark, signed up back in the 90s. I had were some personal issues going on at the time, and I had a helluva time listening to those cassettes. I still have them.

    I'll buy you that cup of coffee, and throw in a pastry.

    Mine didn't come with any cassettes. There were a few video tapes, but everything else was reading material.

    I guess I meant the PPA mostly. I glanced over some sample test questions and well, most of them aren't something 1-2 test exposures can't let you figure out on digital, and it IS the digital age.

    The CPP is a two part certification: first the test, then the image submission. Have to do the test before you can do the image submission.
