    No. There is no magic bullet in photography or any other art.

    I take classes, but the only reason why is because it gives me access to a nice darkroom.

    All the information you need is on the web or at your local bookstore.

    Additionally, that page has a lot of really stupid language:


    1. "[FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]perfect photos" - there are none.[/FONT]
    2. [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]"[/FONT][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]secret techniques" - there is no magic bullet.[/FONT]
    3. [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]"[/FONT][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Are you ready to take your photos to the next level?" - this implies the class will take your photos to the next level, but the reality is you choose when that is going to happen through hard work.[/FONT]
    4. [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]"[/FONT][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]prize-worthy photos" -- beware of any art institute that tries to motivate with money or the notion that you'll get awards. Technique matters, not the end result.
      [/FONT]
    5. [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]"[/FONT][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]How about making some money with your camera?" -- Give me a break. If you sign up the only people making money are them.
      [/FONT]
