Since, you are dedicating your particular time period to learn photography as per whatever is been taught. And expect to become master of Photography within that particular time period.

In case of learning photography from online classes, tutorials, etc… by yourself, it actually takes more time to learn. Investing more time means our productive period of ones career becomes short.
