Awesome Social Learning Tool for Photographers

untitled

I’ve got some exciting news for you amateur photographers out there like me…  LUMEO! I’m sure you are asking yourself “what is Lumeo”? Lumeo is a social media learning website. It delivers education by request. There are over 150 course requests by over 5,000 members on Lumeo. On top of getting photography education on your terms, you get the opportunity to win pro gear like the Canon 5D! You are registered to win the equipment automatically when you register. Registration is free. You just click this link http://www.lumeo.com/?ref=4366, add your name, email address, create a password, and you are ready to start getting advice from some pretty amazing photographers. Contests to win pro gear are run often and you can win them one of two ways. Submit your photography for review or invite as many friends as you can to join and expand the Lumeo community.

There are message boards where you can ask questions about anything from composition to equipment and you will get quality feed back.

Here is a side by side comparison of how traditional schooling works and how Lumeo operates:
