photo school: list of modules

This list is mainly for the use of those who are familiar with the site, especially subscribers, because it is quicker to scroll through than the illustrated list. If you need your memory jogged, or if you are not familiar with the site, go to the illustrated list. Or go back to the home page.

There's now another option: Photo School Extras. 'Extras' is a lot more expensive than the basic subscription but has been introduced (as the saying goes) by popular demand. Click here for more information.

At the bottom of this page there is a list of new modules (after may 2006) as they were added in reverse date order (latest first). The pictures on the right are nothing to do with anything much: they were chosen because they were 300 pixels wide, just to break up a solid text page.
