I'm not sure where to direct these questions since I'm new to this forum. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for someone who loves photography and can take very nice photos but wants to learn all the fundamentals and professional techniques. I already gratudated from college and am in grad school so obviously don't want to enter a program, but I would like to take some classes. I'm very interested in adding a visual component to my academic projects. So where to start? Community college course or two? Are those online or learn-from-home courses (such as those offered by NY Institute of Photography) a rip-off? Way overpriced? Should I just get a good book? Any suggestions or personal experiences are much appreciated. Thanks!
