I am new to digital photography and just purchased my 1st DC in June.
Has anyone used this website (http://www.mydigitalworks.com/store/) to
take any of their courses? If so, any recommendations? They are
offering a great discount on them. I am considering this one.

Digital Photography - 3 Course Power Pack

I am usually a hands on visual type person but would like feedback on
this if anyone has taken any.

I've been told the best way is to just take pics & post in the forum for critique but I am so unfamiliar with some of the terminology even tho I look it up. I still plan to post pics just looking into courses.

Thank you! :|

I don't know anything about this particular course but I suggest that you check out http://www.betterphoto.com. I've got several books written by some of their instructors and they really know their stuff. Browse around the site and you'll see lots of good photographs.

Can't comment on the specific program but when I first got my camera I found there was lots of free advice from websites and users from sites like this if you take the time and look around.

I would save your money, find out as much as you can online and use the money you would have spent on the course to buy yourself a nice tripod, a telephoto lens, anything that will improve your chances of taking a better picture.

I stumbled on a great book that I really love at:


There is no technobabble in the book. It is easy to understand, and I was immediately able to take much better digital photos after reading their book.

They really do make it MUCH easier.

"They really do make it MUCH easier."

"They" bear an amazing resemblance to you and your hubby, also.
