Hi Renville,

welcome to ClubSnap.

Maybe before you start considering taking a Photography course, you may want to read up some books about photography first, to have at least some basic knowledge. I know there are some photographers out there who did not take up any course and still produce very impressive pictures.

If you want to take up a course, make sure it's a reputable one. There are a couple of threads started on where to take such courses, you may want to do a search.

Enjoy your stay here and happy shooting. :)

I've taken some courses at Objectifs before and the instructors are inspiring and creative practicing photographers or photography educators. Check out www.objectifs.com.sg, look under workshops > photography.

You may want to visit the various organisations/companies offering photography classes, check out their websites, and if possible speak to the ex-students.

take a step back dun enroll first... read up in the internet and get familiar with the common terms and your gear. if not you will be just wasting money.

This website might help.

Anyhow, in order to grasp the basics you will need to know these three technical things: Aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Know how these factors interplay together...and you pretty much nailed down your basic foundation.

The other thing is play around with your camera at Manual setting, change aperture and shutter speed and ISO, when you get too bored with reading...and hav fun!

Then comes the composition techniques which can be studied later..honestly it's just a guideline nothing much.
