Great floral shot...Nice gallery!
Have you ever taken any online photo courses on this site? #5114778

Duane Carter November 24, 2007

Hi Ken, Thank you for the nice comment and visiting my gallery!!! To answer your question, no. I've not taken any courses from the site. But if your interested in that you might check with some of the individuals that have. I would think that the way they are structured for interaction with the other classmates and the teacher, they could be very effective. Choosing the right course or courses would be important for your best end results. #5116804
