    I'm going with the advanced digital photography first. Then I'll roll into portrait, lighting, etc . . .

    It had stuff like . . . what is a memory disk? What is a flash? How do I transfer my pictures to a computer?

    I've taken 4 of them and I knew more than everyone in there. The best class I've ever taken was a photojournalism class. It was amazing and I learned a ton.

    The teacher had been involved in the industry for 20 something years and helped us get a portfolio together and so on.

    I still need to take like another 5 or so, so I can get a certificate or something. :dunno:

    I'll be in the group of knowing next to nothing. :o

    If I can take a semi decent pic in a year, I'll consider that a major achievement.

    RCC :o

    You start with photo 8. you have to have a 35mm slr and you learn the basics of the camera and how to develop your own film.

    photo 12 is photojournalism. Loved it.

    there's a studio lighting class and intro to digital photography where you use a DSLR.

    I think there's 10~ classes or so.

    Once you complete all of them, you get a photography certificate. :dunno:
