    Has any one taken the Not Your Normal Photography Course? I took the NYIP
    course and just heard about this one and the reviews on the site say it is
    pretty good. Many of them are NYIP students. Anybody try it? Thanks.

    Just out of curiosity, what is your opinion of the NYIP course?

    How long did it take you to finish it?

    Alan: I thought it was worthwhile. My "formal" training in photography up
    to that point was only a year course in camera repair at National Camera in
    Colorado. (Now closed down.) So I knew how a camera worked and all that
    but didn't understand a lot of the terms used in photography. What I think
    was the best part was that the instructor would go over the pictures I took
    and comment on them. That helped me to see things in my pictures that I
    wouldn't have otherwise. I was able to stay at it because as a single
    person I didn't have a lot of other things to do after work. I think it
    took me about 6 to 8 months. It is expensive but I suppose if you were to
    hire a pro photographer to sit down and review your shots, you would expect
    to pay for that service too. Some parts of it were not all that great but
    perhaps for some other person they would be ok. I can say that my pictures
    improved after it and I was able to take better portrait shots and action
    shots that I wouldn't have taken before that. It is a little lacking on the
    business end of being a photographer but it never did claim to be a business
    course. I have read a lot of reviews and have not seen many people that
    were sorry they took it. I guess if you look at it like this, if it
    improves some of your photos and you can make a few more sales because of
    it, it is worth it. If I were to do it again, I would take it again and
    probably would have done it sooner. I was thinking of it once and decided
    against it. I'm sorry I did. Ric.
