Can Photography Be Self-Taught?

I sure hope so.  I learn by doing, making mistakes, trying again. has some great workshops for beginners.  I wanted to learn some more photography fundamentals, and found a great course that took only a few hours to complete.  I learned Photoshop tips I've used a few times since.

But the best thing I've ever done for myself to improve my skills is ask a photographer friend if I can shadow her at her studio.  I watch over her shoulder, ask questions, practice shooting with her as a model.
She happens to be a gorgeous model.
I'm starting to see the world around me differently.  I'm so excited by the world of photography and all the things I've learned so far.
