    What are your opinions of photography courses online? Are they worthwhile or is there still something special about seeing the professor and physically being in a class?

    Thanks

    Not sure about the online photography courses... maybe you should google it!;)

    btw.... I can't be the first person to bring up the issue that your signature endorses shooting children....

    LOL, I know Dearleader. It makes me laugh when I read it. But you are only the second person to actually comment on it. Should I change it?

    And I have a smile on my face about the google comment. ;)

    Children are best served with potatoes and carrots :p

    You need to check out any online courses to see if they're "prestigious non-accredited" courses. If they're not accredited then they're worthless. We have a dicey place locally advertising courses and how people got jobs through their courses. At the end they whisper "credits earned are unlikely to transfer" - in other words it's a waste of time and money. If it's a good course then the credits will transfer but don't accept their word for it - ask a dozen other colleges.

    Thats funny, it reminds me of when I was once taking a photography course where the instructor was telling us of his tale of shooting children. He was getting in an elevator with his partner, and casually discussing the shooting of a little girl for that day. Someone else in the elevator overheard them and called the police. By the time He and his partner got to there car they were surrounded by the police.

    I took a photography course way back in High School. I think the benefit of an actual teacher is you can get instant feedback. Show him/her a picture and they can give you feedback asap and let you know what to work on. as upposed to waiting for a reply...
