    "Self taught" which boils down to taking pictures, asking for feedback on them, researching various topics, etc. This is not a past tense thing... I'm always learning and suspect I always will be.

    I have learned a lot from the folks on this forum.

    Started - December 07
    Really started like a manick - christmas day - arrival of sigma 70-300mm

    Self taught all the way - much of it being through forums with feedback on photos as well as just reading through posts that caught my eye - a lot of tips picked up this way.
    TPF and other like forums are fantastic resources - offering up free comments, advice and ideas - something very hard to find locally!

    so I have not even been shooting a year and as far as I have reached today I know there is still a very very long road to walk!

    Self taught & apprenticed...sort of.

    Started off borrowing my uncle's camera at about 14 years old. My parents bought me my first camera for my 15th (Minolta X-370), and I started shooting for the high school yearbook & newspaper. The yearbook teacher was the Art teacher and a semi-pro photographer, my HS guidance counselor was also a pro photographer, and taught a 2 student-per-semester Photojournalism class, which counted toward English credit, and the pro photographer who did class, group, & senior pics also took me under his wing.
