    Most of you miss out the important point....

    the TS, i.e. chihuahua had only got a time frame of " two months " the most to become one full fledge photographer.

    Something like mastering all the shaolin kungfu in 60 days.

    too much to ask i would say. even if i have all the money in the world, a crash course wont get me close to those very good artists who have the EXPERIENCE.

    TRUE.
    Real knowledge is experiences, the others are just theory

    To be fair, the TS didn't really say he wanted to become "super pro" at the end of the sessions....

    Maybe it's more practical for TS to restrict to a narrower scope first? Just focus on theory and practical in a couple of areas out of so many possibilities like time lapse, astro, macro, portrait, studio, wildlife, street, product, wedding, sports, travel, etc, etc,...

    In photography.. it is a skill. It is important to keep shooting and breaking your limitations. There will be a time when one will get stuck.

    It is like Star Wars.... there will always be 2... a Master and an Apprentice.

    It is important to have a good Master... a good Mentor.

    This may be an affront to those of us who have been honing our craft for years .....can sense that some of you feel scornful of even such a request.... even me.... initially when I'd read his thread yesterday, I have to admit that I felt a little indignant.

    In our minds ... well, at least mine... I was feeling "Been busting my chops for so long in photography and this punk comes in with a money-no-issue attitude and wants to do what ? Find a mentor to one-on-one tutor him to a level of competency in 2 months that took me YEARS to reach (and I not even there yet ?) ?"

    TODAY, for someone to go from near-zero to competent (not top-of-class) within a mere 2 or a few months?

    And in a single, couple or many genres ?

    So, in short.... is it possible to do an ELIZA DOLITTLE given what's available today ?

    The resources available are extremely accessible ... certainly that learning curve can be extremely steep and short these days with so many photo forums and online tutorials ........... vs. say, pre-2000

    I say...... in a MUCH shorter time than vs the past yes I think thats possible.....but in 2 months through a one-on-one photography boot camp ? Possible ?

    Discuss ..... and please refrain from taking veiled pot-shots at the TS.... we should actually thank him for seeding this discussion

    someone once asked 金庸, how to improve "kung fu" in the shortest possible duration.

    his answer was, "learn the basics well"

    tat someone ask, "how to learn the basics well?"

    金庸, "spend a lot of time doing it"
