Bruce I really value your meaning and think it's wonderful what you write, but can't help to start blushing by your compliments.
I feel so honoured by your kindness.
Photography has always been a great hobby or more even more so a passion. Sometimes it's work too. I made photographs since I was about 14 years old. Some of my pictures on plants are published in books. One of them is a monograph on the genus Hydrangea which is published by Timber Press (USA).Here you find a picture by me from that book.
I learned by making mistakes and finding out what went wrong (trial and error).
Last year I gave some serious thought about taking some photography course. I was at an info day at that institute. By my best judgement I thought there would not be enough to learn as I just took that course.
Another possibility was to do the photo academy, which is a study of four years.Went to listen to what this was all about and gave it a good thought. This winter I decided to go for it. By proving I have some experience (had to make two tests, one on photo theory the other digitally in Photoshop) I could skip one year and start in the second year.I should also bring a portfolio with twenty picture on which they decide if you're talented enough.
Lucky enough my pictures where OK and the digital test in PS went OK too but the theory wasn't.
Last week I had a second chance on that test and now it was OK two (studied a bit on theory).
So at the and of this month I will be starting at the academy. I'm really looking forward to that!
Your gallery gives me l so much joy and pleasure to walk through. Hope you will keep posting your great pictures too.
Best regards, Erik
