Thread: Where you learn photography

  1. #1

    Default Where you learn photography

    How many CSer out there learn photography by themselves or together with friends without enrolling in photography courses? If so, which web sites or books inspire the learning experiences?

    And how many of you pay for photography related courses or talks or seminars to improve the way you shoot? If so, where to look out for such courses?

    Hehe..no option as ClubSnap ah?

    Well, i got inspired by a majestic arowana picture..that got me started..

    Then, i found Clubsnap! Learn lots of basics over here..thought it may not be as specialised and maybe 'pro' as other photographic community, i like it the way it caters to beginners.

    other than that, its mainly on books and net info. No money to go courses! 9but some may ask why got money for equipment, no money for proper training! )

    Started by learning from a friend the fundamentals. After that just shoot and learn on my own. Ask when don't understand and read.

    hahaha. seriously, it's a mixture of self-learning (mostly) and attending some courses here and there. and i do a lot of reading and browsing thru photo books for inspirations and ideas.

    Me too, self-taught. A few magazies, some web sites, many good friends and plenty of criticisms from all over.

    Clubsnap is a very good resource.

    Digital photography accelerated my learning ten times! No need to record the settings and wait for the processing.
