I have a friend who took a photography dip. from NAFA , every weekend he has homework in the form of shooting pics which fit a certain theme. The teacher is there on site to review and critique their pics based on the 9 (i think) elements of composition.
And once every 2 weeks they are supposed to shoot using film only, not digital...
sound like quite expensive in taking up photography degree or diploma, but do they cover topic like how to use photoshop or like how to edit your photos? and by the way, how much can a photographer earn? is there such job like hiring part time novice photographer with no experience? lolx.
my cousin took afew modules as part of Raffles design institute course...
lolx. but in this forum, is there any category meant for hiring part time photographer without any experience? or any studio kind of job? hahax.
Some photographers make very little, some make a lot. On top of your skills and photographic work, a lot depends on your marketing skills and a hell lot of luck.
No one will hire a photographer with no experience to take on a serious project. Your best bet is to try to find jobs as photographer's assistant. You have to start off carrying gear, and help doing setups of lighting etc.. But that is how you learn also. And the pay is not high. But that is the best way to start out.
thanks gentlemen for your wonderful help and support for me this noob guy, once i got my DSLR, i will start and upload my pictures in this forum. hope your guy can enlighten me and give me comment. but sorry that i have to take quite a while to get my DSLR as i'm saving money now. thanks guy, your very helpful. thanks.
Maybe get a pns first. There are some cheap Canon and Nikon pns costing less than $120. They come with program scene setting like sports, portrait, macro etc. with auto everything. Not outstanding but good enough to let you learn the basics of photography like composition and rules of third. Maybe you say you already know the basics but actually capturing a shot based on the theory is not that easy.
Later when you get a DSLR, the pns is still useful. I keep them in the car for the sometimes candid shot where DSLR is too bulky to carry around everyday.
