Hey everyone, I imagine this question comes around quite often but I'm sure most of it is about New York Institute. I just found this one today from Better Photo http://www.betterphoto.com/online-photography-courses.asp They run about 3-8 weeks or so and the one I was looking at runs just over $300 US for 8 weeks. It's cheaper than NYI, until you've got 3 or more under your belt. This one seems more appealing because you can pick specific areas. The one I'm most interested in is 'Developing your creative artistic vision'. I already have this vision in my head... I just cant put it on film how I want to. The requirements are to have a telephoto lens which I'd have to get. And I imagine a digital camera would make things WAY easier and quicker, although digital is not a requirement. Has anyone ever tried these? The site looks a bit more professional than NYI. I'd really hate to get ripped off all that money (especially when it could go towards more toys). Thanx guys.
