I took it in 1982. It was great back then, but I can't say how it is now in the digital world.

I noticed even in 1982 a lot of the images used in the course appeared to have been taken in the 1950's (they were of one of the owners' children so maybe it was required to have her in there.)

It has been very helpful for me. A lot of the material covers film cameras, but most of the principles apply to both. I have been able to buy Adobe products at the educational price, so that is a big win.

thanks,
Danny

I looked into this many years ago but never did it. Not sure what the cost is but I think theres many places now with the web that are worthy. I do know of one place that will give you the BEST instruction on portraiture but I don't want to mention it here. It's expensive but if your serious, it will pay off for you. PM me if your intrested.

Over half-way done. There are a few film specific courses, but the technique of capturing light hasn't changed much, just the media it is captured on. (And a few new bells and whistles on the camera) I have some old books from my father from the 50s, still interesting reading.

I posted this on the another board a while back as a NYIP FAQ. (I was stuck in a snow storm at the time):

-------------------------------------------------

On a regular basis, people post questions about the New York Institute of Photography (NYIP). I have had it in my mind to post a FAQ on the subject, and with the large snowfall here in the Midwest, I obviously have nothing better to do (or am procrastinating shoveling the 2 foot snowdrifts on the driveway). Maybe this will be worth the time, so here goesÖ.

Is the NYIP legitimate?
Yes. I have taken the course and can say that it is. Although they do have a physical building with offices, etc. in New York, it is a correspondence school. It is not an accredited college or anything of that sort. You do get a nifty certificate to put on the wall. However, if you want a four-year degree in photography, look somewhere else.

What is the difference between the Complete Course in Professional Photography (Original Course) and the Digital Courses?
The Original Course is the course that teaches all about photographic fundamentals. It is primarily film based, but of course most everything is applicable to digital photography as well. They used to have a course called the Complete Course in Digital Photography that taught a little about photographic technique, but primarily focused on digital file manipulation, with emphasis on Photoshop. Recently, it appears they have split that into two courses: Fundamentals of Digital Photography (Short Course) and Adobe Photoshop for Photographers (Complete Course).

How are the courses arranged?
The Complete Courses have 6 units. Each unit has several lessons each. Also, each unit has: photo assignments (3-6 each) that are sent in and critiqued by your advisor; a written test that is pretty easy (but makes sure you have at least read the lessons); and a video/DVD to watch.
For the Original Course, the units and lessons are:
Unit 1: Eye of the Photographer; Camera and Lens; How to Use Your Camera
Unit 2: Film; Exposure; Developing Black and White Film; Filters; Developing Your Eye
Unit 3: Natural Light including Travel Photography; Available Light; Artificial Light; Strobe; The Perfect Print; The Darkroom
Unit 4: Basic Portrait Lighting; Studio Portraiture; Location Portraiture; Child and Pet Photography; Wedding Photography; Color Film Processing
Unit 5: Photojournalism 1; Photojournalism 2; Fashion Photography; Finishing Touches; Copying, Macro Photography, and Photomicroscopy
Unit 6: Glamour and Nude; View Camera; Advertising and Still Life; Architectural Photography

How much does it cost?
NYIP is a pretty crafty for-profit business. After you present an inkling of interest, they will send out lots of mailings. The first mailing will have an offer. It will not be their best offer. After the first mailing, a second offer will be presented. Be patient. It will probably take about three mailings to get to the lowest offer. Obviously costs change (that is, go up over time), but if you wait and also pay in full (rather than use the installment plan), past students have paid in the $650-$700 range.

How long does it take to complete?
If you hop right on it, about 6 months or less. If you have a life, you have up to 3 years to complete everything. If you are paid in full, you will be granted an extra year (4 in all) upon request.

How does it compare to other on-line courses, for example, at Better Photo?
I have no idea, as I have never taken a Better Photo course. Many people love these courses, so Iím sure they are excellent. I can tell you that the typical 4-8 week course at Better Photo costs around $200-$300, and covers one topic.

Iíve heard the material is kind of outdated.
OK, thatís not a question, but a statement. AnywayÖ..some of the material looks outdated, and in the digital course, itís hard to keep up with the latest pixel count. Again, NYIP is a pretty crafty business. Changing course materials increase cost, so they donít do that as often as many would like. But the fundamentals donít change, and that is what they teach.

I agree that it is not a four year college, however it is accredited. Go to this link, Institution Accreditation - Search Page, and enter the search string "new york institute of photography", and you will find it. This is how I was able to purchase software from Adobe with the edu discount.

thanks,
Danny
