I am not looking for specific dates, times, schools or certificate type thing. What I am wanting to know is if you are a trained photographer with actual schooling (accredited or not) or a shade tree type who learned it on the ropes and school of hard knocks? In my case I was only given rudimentary knowledge of photography and have had to learn the hard way ever sense. As of late however, and after cataloging my own experiences, I am finding the massive number of issues with my work and see the major problems and the simple solutions that was, unfortunately not taught int he classes I did taken and not told to me from others. What is your experience?
