People often ask how I learn about photography. Well, doing it is definitely the best way, but then there are books, classes and online resources and all are fantastic. I find it easier to learn by watching, or taking a class rather than reading in a book. Finding the time to take classes isn't always easy and they tend to be pretty expensive. A great alternative to being in the classroom is to take online classes. I've taken tons of them and my two favorite resources for online classes is Kelby Training and Lynda.com. Although different, both offer tons of classes on everything from composition and how to use Lightroom to lighting and classes on how to use your specific camera. It's great. Kelby training is completely focused on photography while Lynda.com offers photography classes but also all types of software and small business classes. Each has their advantage (if I had to chose one, as a photographer, I'd choose Kelby), but I totally recommend both. Anyway, now is a great time to try Lynda as they're offering 10 days free. Both are totally worth it, but you can't beat free! Give 'em a try!
