    Hi all

    I'm thinking of enrolling on this course has anyone on here done it before? It's a 10 week course (10 hours study per week suggested which should be just about manageable for me with a full time job too). Just looking for any opinions of it before I part with the cash.

    Fab course. Really good tutorials, excellent forums where you can learn/chat, lots of exercises and projects. Can't recommend it highly enough. I made some good friends and we had meet-ups which continued well after the course finished. Wish I could do it again.

    Hi

    I did the T189 a couple of yeatrs ago and really enjoyed it. I was new to the "theory" of photography and found I learned a lot. Working full time the course is still manageable.
    There are lots of tutorials etc on epz that I've found useful too. May be worthwhile having a look at them before you spend out on a course.

    cheers

    OMG really? Yeah don't think I'll be paying that!! Was thinking of trying to start the next week one, should still be able to enrol. I think I'm going to go for it, will let you know how I get on.

    I know I can use books, mags and online tutorials but I find the structure of having 'hand-ins' kind of keeps me motivated especially as I'm working. If it was just left to me, I wouldn't do it even though I'm keen to learn it's easier just to veg on the couch after work/dinner/dog walk!!

    I have done an NQ Camera Techniques - quite enjoyed that and it was just a Saturday morning course with some photography through the week - probably about the same time commitment as the OU course.

    Thanks for your input.

    My wife finished the last course a few months ago. She got a lot out of it despite being an experienced photographer with film & slide. Learned a lot about the digital format & image manipulation as well as making a load of new friends in the chatrooms. The more you put in the more you will get out of it.

    Ok great am definitely going for it. Any tips on how to discipline myself to stick to 10 hours per week? Am thinking 5 hours at the weekend and 5 through the week after work?

    If you actively participate in the chatrooms I think you'll find you spend more than hour a day there. apparently its a great place for discussion of images, tossing around ideas & social interaction. HRH used to spend most of her time there (So much so that I couldn't get on here to chat to these knowledgable peeps!).

    HRH lol!!
