Being new to photography, I try to do something every day that increase my knowledge and skills. When I am not out taking pictures, I read blogs and books on a variety of photography subjects. However, what I have found to be the most helpful is taking classes. I have taken a few in-person classes but what I really enjoy is the structure and community of online classes.
I'm getting ready to take my third online class with Kim Manley Ort . So far I have taken her Going Abstract and Photo By Design. On May 19th I will start Keeping It Simple. Kim is a wonderful teacher and I find that she provides interesting assignments along with in-depth resources. She creates a class environment that is supportive and encouraging to students of all abilities. Having a reason to take my camera out each day keeps me growing as a photographer.
