Thread Title: PSA education

Fred Doerfler   Fred Doerfler
i just wanted to recommend some of the PSA online photography courses that i have taken. I completed the image analysis 2 years ago and it was very good. I completed the History of Photography in January. This was almost at the level of a college course. Excellent course. I am now a student of the Creating images for Competition. This is rigorous. I know i will be a better photographer when i complete it. I have 6 months to complete.
i recommend those courses. I am sure the others are of the same high quality.   Posted: 03/12/2021 18:02:11

Hi Fred, I am the admin for group 43 and noticed your post regarding courses. I too have taken the Image Analysis course and found it extremely beneficial not only in DD, but in judging for my camera club too. I am considering taking the History of Photography course, but don't want to bite off more than I can chew. Can you tell me approximately how much time you spent each week working on this between assignments. Also any thing else you could tell me about it would be very much appreciated.

How do you find classes? The website is at best confusing.   Posted: 03/13/2021 17:55:44

Thread Title: ideas for images

Jo-Ann Rolle   Jo-Ann Rolle
Would like some ideas of how you select images for the group to review. I would like to develop more artistic images but I am not sure if there are boundaries to photographic submissions.   Posted: 03/12/2021 17:57:05

This is a general photo group. Often members in other groups are looking for suggestions before they submit the image to competition. But it doesn't matter to me what you want you are planning to do with the image as far as I am concerned.
When you post the image, you can tell us what you are using the image for and ask us specifically what you want us to comment on or focus on.   Posted: 03/12/2021 18:09:38

Years ago I entered competitions --- I am not there now -- maybe in a year or two I will go back. My purpose now is to grow, improve, and develop .... I once took private lessons with a coach...I appreciate any help the group gives.   Posted: 03/12/2021 18:15:37

JoAnne - sometimes I submit one that I plan to eventually enter in competition and would like comments on how I might improve it. Sometimes I am looking for help, i.e. I have a post-processing problem and would like advice on how I might solve it. And sometimes I have something I'd like to share with the group, something that others might learn from. But mostly I submit photos just to share, not really looking for anything in return.   Posted: 03/13/2021 18:28:16
