Dear Right Moves,
Is photography school a waste of time?
My parents are spending a fortune and I’m stuck here going to classes when I could be making inroads in a photographer’s studio, learning as I get paid! Isn’t it better to get out there and BEGIN, rather than to take but another course in lighting to be used someday, maybe.

Dear Lighting 101
Just as you cannot possibly know what you don’t know, you cannot appreciate the importance of what you’re learning. Without a solid foundation of technique and a thorough understanding of cameras and their capabilities, you won’t be in a position to fully develop into the visual talent you can be.
