Search for a course that provides all of what's important.

The second step to good a photo is proper lightening at differed conditions, which is in a tight connection with exposure. And the third basic lesson you should conquest are different techniques. How to photograph people, nature, still life, architecture etc. If the course provides more, that's great, but these are the basis that it should provide.
