I am new to this site and certainly need to learn how to use it. My screen name is anniness and I live in CT. I'm trying to find a school that doesn't take 2 yrs to complete and is in another state. Anyone have any ideas? I am thinking of an on-line course. Has anyone done this before? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I hope to be a portrait photographer (children and pets). I have always loved taking pictures and now that I am unemployed it seems like a good idea to fulfill my dream. Hope to make some friends here. Thanks!
