Hey all, Just wondering how many of you have had formal training in photography. For those who haven't, how did you learn? Did someone take you under their wing? Did you read books and teach yourself? Also, how long have you been taking pictures? I'll start. No formal training. Self taught through books, magazines, webpages, anything I can read from anywhere. And learning from you guys of course :hug::. Looking back I've been interested in photography for a very long time. I got my Canon Rebel for Christmas....4 years ago or so. Every year I get a little more serious about it.
