Classes for Beginners


I am thinking about taking an online course. I own a Kodak Easyshare DX7590. I have had the camera for about 9 months. I would really like to get better at taking pictures. I am just not sure where I should start.

  Hi Tricia,
Thanks for your interest in BetterPhoto's online courses. With your camera (i.e., exposure overrides and a zoom lens), you have several excellent options for beginner courses. Some suggestions, in no particular order:

Fundamentals of Photography Made Easy by Jim Zuckerman
http://www.betterphoto.com/photocourses/JZK11.asp

Getting Started: How to Make Great Photographs by Jed Manwaring
http://www.betterphoto.com/photocourses/JED01.asp

Jump Start to Digital Photography by Susan and Neil Silverman
http://www.betterphoto.com/photocourses/SIL02.asp

Each of these courses is slightly different, so you'll want to check out the Course Outline and Course Q&A for each. Those will help you in your decision-making - although you really wont' go wrong with any of them.

Hope this helps, Tricia!

  Hi, Tricia,
I took the Silverman's Beginning Digital Photography class here at BP a couple years ago. They were awesome! Always there for you and had great critiques that left you feeling good about yourself....:-)

  Thank you Bob and Kerry for your response. I think I will probably take the Silverman's class.
