    I would like a get into photography and maybe start a career out of it. I have always liked photography. I have plenty of time to learn how to do it great. I was wondering if I should go to a community college for photography and photoshop? Any advice would be helpful thanks.

    If you want to make a career out of it, then you should go to community college for business, accounting and tax training. The business of photography is very little about photography and very much about business.

    That aside, what I would suggest is get yourself a decent camera (if you don't already have one) and spend a year or so practicing different aspects of photography, portraits, advertising, wedding, etc. See, which, if any appeal to you, and then when you've got a more firm idea of your direction, look to education.

    Good advice..............:thumbup:

    But if you do want to increase your knowledge about composition, ISO/shutter/aperture relationships, and what constitutes a good photo, take a course by all means...

    But learn how to photograph first.....learn how to photoshop afterwards....;)
