    Rather than reply to those that have posted remarks about NYIP I thought I'd
    just start a new post. I took the course in 98 and liked it a lot. Some
    have mentioned that there is a NYIP group at MSN. There is one at Yahoo
    groups and it is pretty active. As for the course, I guess my photography
    needed to focus on what I was actually trying to shoot. They taught me to
    look at the interesting points in a picture and how to avoid the stuff that
    you sometimes see in photos that has nothing to do with the shot. Sort of
    like people that can tell you about their trip to the beach and they start
    out telling how they got up in the morning and made coffee. Also in many of
    my lessons I would jump in the car and travel 10 miles to another town
    looking for what would be a good shot for the assignment, only to come home
    disappointed and find the perfect shot a half mile from my house. That is
    training the eye to see what is around you, and how the camera will see it,
    that is how the camera will see the light and how the human eye will see it.
    I hope I have not gone on and on here but what they try to do in the course
    is not to just say use this filter for this and buy this gizmo for this
    shot. I suppose a lot of what they are teaching is what a good art school
    would try to show you about how light falls on a person or building. As for
    the cost, if you start making better pictures and sell more, the cost is
    minor. Hope that helps a little. If you have any questions that you would
    like to ask, feel free to contact me at . Ric.
