Hey Naama sorry its taken me so d**n long to reply! I wasnt getting the responses to my email!
You dont really need to do a photography course! Its not worth paying the money for to be honest! You can read up about it all on the web! I'd say the only thing you may want to train up on is photoshop but thats only because ive found it so hard to use lol. Not everyone does!
Am self trained and dont use any extra lenses or all the technical stuff people tend to buy! I was actually talking to a guy in our local photography shop and he even said it may take a bit longer to train yourself but your better off and that the amount of money people spend on these courses where their told they need such a lense and such a camera is ridiculous!
But that being said its also great to learn these things on courses as I honestly dont understand all the techinical jargon lol and since meeting my boyfriend a professional photographer I really dont know a whoooole lot that could be useful lol.
Anyways I hope you managed to find a course or you have set about doing photography and you are enjoying it all! Am finally being paid and featured in more places which is fab!
