    Hi all

    Just thought I would pop by and say hello. "hello"

    I am looking to further my experience and knowledge in photography.

    I started many moons ago with a Praktica MTL3 then moved onto a Pentax ME Super (awesome camera). And did my own black and White developing and printing in my parents bathroom (doesn't everyone?)

    I drifted away from photography due to work and family reasons (having triplet daughters puts paid to a lot of things)

    Now I am back with a DSLR and have spent the last year reading as many camera mags as possible but I am stuck in a rut. I think I am after a photography course preferably on line due to lack of regular time off. I have seen a few on the net ranging from £300 to £500. Are these type of courses worth that sort of money?

    Any way, hi again and I will take the time to post up some pics for evaluation over the weekend.

    Hi Andrew,

    glad you could join us.

    Not sure about other on-line courses but AP do distance learning photo courses one of which I did about 3 years ago. I found it very good and learnt a lot and it was handy to be able to do things as fast or slow as I liked - work and life get in the way. :D

    Just an option - you should find the details for the SPI courses (School of Photographic Imaging) on the AP home page. Also, the images I took for the various modules are on my flickr site if you're interested.

    Nice you have join us on here. :)

    Curious in what way do you feel you are in a rut if I may ask?

    I progressed similar to you MTL3/5 but went for slides mainly. Only ended up processing E6 myself because of a bad lab situation in 2000.

    Personally I just shoot what I want to hang on my wall. Which of cause means I still get my images printed. I like seeing a image printed out.

    In a rut?

    Not really sure.

    I would like to have a go at portraiture, landscapes, macro...indeed everything but I can not decide on what to do.

    I am going to upload some pics to see what you guys think, perhaps you can give me some direction?
