Thread: Basic Course

  1. #1

    Default Basic Course

    Hi...I m a newbie and thinking of taking the basic photography course.
    I happen to saw that Canon offer such course...wondering anyone attended before.
    Or anyone attended the course from Objectifs?
    Which one is better?

    my advise...go to library and borrow a few books instead. Then when you know what to ask, go for the course.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    I would personally read off the internet as the internet has much more material than books. And of course, going to the library is very troublesome as I don't drive.

    I'm for library books too! Internet could get confusing coz sometimes if the resource is not complete, you get pieces of information here and there. Books, especially the specialized ones, are more comprehensive, and if after that you still have questions, perhaps the internet could supplement whatever book you borrowed.

    Now library provides free online renewal! You can keep the book for 1 month! Hahaha! Read and try, learn fast with digital! Save money from those courses!

    Of course, I'm not saying courses aren't good. I never attended one so I can't say. Everything I know about photography is learnt from books, books, more books, and internet and forums, and to some extent, experience... =))) No matter which way you choose to learn more, nothing beats experiencing and making mistakes. =)))

    Cheers!

    If you already have a camera, I think you could always join some newbie outings

    No problem at all. Just go for those free CSer organised photoshoot outings, or even organised paid photoshoot sessions with reputable organisers who are known to give guidance to newbies. You would have had it made. A few more of these, the practical issues and settings would be 2nd nature to you.

    Wow nice present.... i think my birthday coming up soon too.


    On a serious note, i think we have newbie's outing too, why not join those? Since its a "newbies" outing, I don't think there are many experts going, those who go are the helpful kinds

    If Canon's course is F.O.C, no harm going.
    On top of that, read up books in the Library as mentioned by others. It helps a lot.
