Complete Course in Professional Photography

When I started I did not realize I would get so much hands on knowledge about photography. NYIP trained my eyes to see lights. Now people are appreciating my photographs. A foreign bank published my photo in their calendar on the November 2013 page.

The best part of the course were the personal evaluations for the photo submissions. My teacher has a wonderful way of always making you feel positive about your progress even when you have a long ways to go! She has a way of making you want to achieve better results with each assignment. No matter if a photo was off the mark she found something positive to say about it and that made it always motivated me to work harder.

Ever since I started with the course my photos improved and I could say that because I get pleasing comments from friends and families who see my pictures. I love the fact that I could turn my photos into fine works of art and learn the technical aspects of photography. Thank you so much NYIP!
