Other People’s favorites!

Hi Noemi,

Here’s a photo I took this week. I like it because the lighting and focus draw you to Joanna’s beautiful eyes.



My name is Patricia and I’m Michael and Michelle Dugan’s sister from Brazil. I found your blog through Cari Dugan’s and was immediately drawn to it. I have always enjoyed photography and actually took a class of it in High School. But only recently have a seriously thought of it as something that I’d like to invest my time and money in. Well, I really enjoy your blog and really appreciate the time you put into giving tips and showing your own work…I’ve been really inspired. Since I live in Brazil, I’d like to do some online beginners course, do you have any suggestions?

Well, I think I’m a little late but here is my favorite picture of my little baby Julia now 3 months old. I love it because I always dreamt of having a black haired, blue-eyed baby, and God was so good in giving me more than I could wish for…I think she’s the most beautiful baby I’ve ever seen…:-)

I’d love it if you could give me an answer!!



I’ve never taken any online courses and I wouldn’t even know where to begin to refer you…sorry. If I hear of anything I’ll post it on here…maybe another reader has info they can leave as a comment?

I live in DC and have taken some online courses through the Kansas City Art Institute (why KCI? I used to live in KC and am very familiar with their arts programs) although not a professional photographer by any means I found their classes useful to get me started in that direction (ahem…if I had the time!!).

They not only have basic photography classes (taking pictures of people, babies, etc) but I found their Photoshop offerings extremely useful and resourceful. In addition they have website and business development classes too.

They also were not too expensive. I remember them being about $80 a class. (http://www.ed2go.com/cgi-bin/oic3/newcourses.cgi?name=kcai)
