Thread: Basic photography course

  1. #1

    Default Basic photography course

    Pros here, ask you all hor... when you all first started, do you all just google and go get all the readings or you guys will attend those basic photography course?

    Through reading, i understand abit, confuse abit, blur abit......

    Then some tell me 'no need course.... just go shoot none stop..... course fee can buy 1 lens liao'

    Some say ' good to go for course '

    Then for me, both like also right leh..... so just wanted to seek your thoughts

    What I did was borrowed books from the library, go out shooting with more knowledgeable friends and stalk this forum.

    I don't want to pay for something that I can learn free of charge.

    Look for "Digital Photography 1 on 1" in Youtube from Adorama. Is quite useful and i learn it from there. Try to do more read up from books. There is alot of good books in library.

    You can try to join some beginnering outing organize in CS. Shoot more and you will be better.

    Rather then a photography course, can also join a photography club and from there pick up the skills from the more veteran members.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    you can try starting with books like these if there is no one to guide you.

    both ways can work, see whether you are from school of systematical learning or school of hard knock.

    Guess those courses only teach theories. Agree wif Spree. Read a bit and go mingle wif shooting kakis and shoot.
    For me, hands on experiment more satisfying..
