    Default Which photography workshop to go for ah?

    I intend to sign up for a photography workshop but not sure which to attend as there are quite a lot under the 'Workshops, Studio/Model Shoots' thread.

    Hi myyong. You mean the PSS course? I just visited their website and enquired about their Creative Photography and Digital Basic Photography(Eng) Courses. Not sure if the former one is right for amateur like me.

    Are you signing up for the Digital Basic Photography(Eng) also?

    My advise, do some prior reading up before attending any course. Know the topics that are going to be covered and you can ask some questions to clear any doubts during the class. Or you might be attanding the class totally blur and dun understand some of the terms that are mentioned.

    Hi there,

    For a start, you can try out the Digital Basic Photography Course first together with the Art Of Seeing Class. After completion, you can follow up with Travel & Creative Photography.

    Don't worry, anything don't understand just voice out to the instructors. They are very helpful one.

    I agree that the instructors are helpful. But IMO, to speed up the learning curve, it's still better to scratch the surface before going. And I'm sure that there would be questions after reading up and can ask during the class, rather than being blur and dun know what to ask. Go home still blur.
    Just my $0.02.

    find a good friend who is a photographer. the basics are really not that hard to master. i.e. exposure, technique and the basic controls of your camera. you will learn more in an hour session talking with that person, than paying $$$ to go for these courses.

    what cant be taught, is composition. that, is either something you have innately, or can only come by practise practise and more practise.
