Thinking back, when I first red about the NYIP course, I was deeply impressed, by the amount of useful information which I found on the page. I kept coming back, reading all the articles about basics and techniques, and started dreaming about becoming a student of the NYIP on my own. I had the feeling, this is the "big course" and this is, what I want to do. Learning photography from the best. It's now three years ago, that my husband had signed me up for the course, and it felt like a dream come true. I received the books, manuals, CD's and DVD's and started to inhale the amount on fantastic information. Thanks to the NYIP course I was able to get the knowledge about photography to take pictures slightly different and creating my own style. I've also been in the lucky position to combine my love to blues music and photography. Taking pictures at blues festivals in France, England and Europe and seeing these pictures printed in Blues Magazines is something very special. I personally liked the NYIP course very much and was pretty exited each time I received the audio file from Walter Karling. Especially within the last unit I thought, it would be nice having the option of sending a collection of "my best pictures". I'm not into fashion photography or architecture. My heard is pounding for wildlife and while I travelled the world over the last month, I took pictures for the last unit too. Please let me say sorry again, for sending in a picture of a dog when you wanted to see a picture what says glamour. Even so I think the dogs face is worth a million dollar and it has written "glamour" all over it I guess, you expected something different. The essence what I've learned from the NYIP course is: A picture for me is a good picture, when I like it. Thank you NYIP for teaching me, how to take my photography a step further, and thank you Walter Karling for commenting on my images.
