    Photography Learn-From-Home options? What's good? What's best?

    What are some mail-order or online Photo Classes that are good? Or are there any book series that take you through the same thing a class would?

    What are the best options for improving your photography without going away to school somewhere?

    I did the NYIP stuff. It was one of cheapest I could find. Betterphoto has some amazingly wonderful classes but I couldn't afford them (still can't!). Anyway, with NYIP, it was alright. A little 70's-ish. They have a new digital option now. I did learn a lot when it came to studio work, but a lot of it is stuff that I am sure you already know. I wish it could be a menu type of thing. Then you could pick and choose what you want rather than paying for everything when you only want a few.

    Have you checked out They have some lesson there that I thought were pretty good. A total of 10 and again, most of it probably more basic than what you need. But maybe you'll find something there.

    I'm leaving my husband for my D3X! I'm in love!!!

    Please, feel free to edit the images I submit for critique. I'm a visual kind of gal!
