I am going to bite the bullet....

and go to school for photography. I have toyed with the idea for quite some time now, I have always wanted to know more about my camera and everything related. My work will pay for an associate's or bachelor's degree, so why not get it in something that I love. I have my film and digital SLR and just need to get signed up in some classes. I am soo nervous. I haven't been in school in over 10 years. This will definitely be a shock to the system, but a good one.

Nicolek good for you for going back to school. I thought long and hard before I went back to school. Right now I'm going for a BA in photography. This is a great degree and you can do a few different things with it as well. I'm not sure if I just want to be a photographer right now or an image editor. I plan on second shooting with some photographers in my area to see if I want to pursue being full bore photographer or doing something with imaging. Get ready for a shock to system for sure. There is a ton to learn besides composer and exposure. I did have some people who were very close to me question me on why photography. At this point they are all cheering me on.

Congrats on your decision. I am also trying to decide if I want to go to school for photography. I have BA in Business Management. I have looked around at the local colleges and community colleges. I am trrying to decide if I want a full degree or just take a few classes to get a better understanding of photography, editing and taking pctures.
