I’d love to take a photography class. The local community college offers a digital photography class at night. But let’s face it, it’s hard to find time to go to class twice a week for 12 weeks. Most people don’t the have time.
Luckily, there are a number of free digital photography classes for people to take online at their convenience. I’m trying out the classroom at MorgueFile. What I really like is that there are assignments after each lesson. You can post your photos from each assignment and get feedback from the online community. It’s also really interesting to see what other people submit for the assignments.
There are a number other sites with photography tutorials, such as Digital Photography School and Digital Photography Student. I haven’t spent much too time on these sites yet, but there seems to be a great online community. Photography Monthly has a great series of PDFs that can be downloaded.
For those of you who don’t like to read, check out Joe Blogg’s videos on Vimeo. He has a great series on Perfect Photography Composition and Perfect Exposure. Also check out Michael’s Photography School for a series of video lessons.
