I have been in avid amateur photographer for a number of years. I have watched countless hours of YouTube “how to” videos of photography. NYIP helped me refine and perfect my knowledge of photography.
Let me illustrate it this way: When I do odd jobs around the house I need to use reading glasses. I don't wear them all the time so they are constantly going from my shirt pocket to my face. At the end of the day I'll come back into the house and sit down down to read. By now the lenses on my reading glasses are a little dingy. I can still read out of them but they need to be cleaned. After I clean them and put them back on everything is crystal clear.
That is how it was after I took the Fundamentals of Digital Photography Class. The knowledge that I previously accrued, along with the classes at NYIP all came together. I will always be an amateur photographer, but NYIP has definitely helped me to be a better one. Thank you NYIP! It was money well spent.
