I wish I had taken more photography classes in school. My high school didn't offer any electives like that and I took my first Black and White Photography class in my first semester of college. Using the dark room and watching the photos expose by light of a fading red bulb was so much fun.
There was a time I swore I'd never go digital... "It's not real photography" I'd said... Now, without a dark room, I'm lucky to find many places that still expose film.
During that semester I had a professor who would pretty much give me an A on any photo taken of a crow. He was a unique teacher and once gave me a bumper-sticker that said "CAW if you love Corvus Brachyrhynchos".
I think he'd be happy about this one.
