One of my many hobbies and passions is photography, though to be quite frank, most of what I know (if not all) has been self-taught. I used to dream as a kid of being one of the best photographers in the world. But I’ll be the first to tell you that if you want to do something you can teach yourself enough to get you by, but the reality of it is, sometimes you just don’t know what you don’t know.
There’s no doubt that there are times, mainly when we are growing up, of course (!), but also as adults – when education and tutoring are essential if you want to develop. When I was at High School, science was my main weakness and in order to get through my parents found me a Physics tutor. Without my tutor, I wouldn’t have got through my science exams.
Now as a blogger, one of the things I don’t really know, and really need to know, is Lightroom, so when I was given the opportunity to take a class with MyPhotoSchool I jumped at the chance to take their Lightroom for Photographers course taught by George Cairns.
Many people are quite hesitant to part with their hard earned money if they don’t know just what they’re getting into, after all, distance learning is not for everyone. Before you dispel the option though, I invite you to join me every step of the way as I take my Lightroom for Photographers course and find out if this option is right for you.
Before I get into the details, I want to talk to you a bit about the overall feel of the course. I wasn’t sure what to expect, as there are times when it’s as much of a learning process to get to know the platform you are working on, as it is to learn the content of the course. In this case, I can happily inform you that the MyPhotoSchool website is quite simple and straightforward to use.
