    Basic Photography...hmm if I recall correctly the SubStation use to offer courses in Basic, Portrait, Journalism, black & white etc. at their premises.
    Costs are reasonable and they are well run by a pro.
    Took a few of the courses.
    Sometimes back though...don know if still exists
    Perhaps U can check it out.

    Is taking photography course really necessary? Can I find a lao-jiao to teach me the basics in photography instead of paying hundreds to go for the course?

    yes. it can be done. self-learning by trial n error and making your own conclusions wrt yor individual style of shooting is possible. but i guess photog schools layout everything 4u so u need not spend the xtra time on trial n error.

    Well, isn't trial and error supposed to be good? One learn by making a lot of mistakes right?

    Hi all,

    I am willing to work with those of you that would like to learn photography. I have been wanting to pass on much of what I have learnt in the past 14 years to younger photographers..

    Of coz.. since this would be taking up time.. and effort.. I would be wanting to charge a token fee.. and keep groups small and interactive.. I have done this once before.. and basically I do not put a limit to the amount of time per session..

    For topics of interest that I am not proficient at.. I will find someone that can impart the best knowledge for you, and he/she will be your guide..

    For those that are interested.. you can drop me a PM.. or email @ gadrian@singnet.com.sg for a rough guide to what I will be exploring with you..

    Adrian.
