Digital Photography Lesson
Get started, get a Digital Photography Lesson!
Are you looking for a digital photography lesson that will help you get started in your new-found hobby? If so, do you know what it is you really want to learn in your digital photography lesson? And do you know whether you want to learn in a formal environment or be taught by someone who understands the craft, but isn't a qualified teacher? Do you realise that you could end up paying a lot for a single digital photography lesson, but on the other hand, you could get one for free?
If you sign up for a course or for classes, you will be certainly be taught about digital photography. But there's another way, and that is to learn from people who have experience and who produce stunning pictures of their own. Some of these people are professionals who may charge a fee (sometimes quite a hefty fee), but you can also learn from talented amateurs. So if you have a friend who is good at taking photographs, why not see if you can tag along and see how it is done? The funny thing is that there are a lot of people out there who are more than willing to share their skills.
I tutor students studying one particular long distance course in digital photography, and for their first assignment they are required to do quite a lot of practical work. For example, they have to choose two projects that could make them money if they were working in the field. The idea is to familiarise themselves with what is required. One possibility is to take pictures at a wedding. Some superb shots came from a complete newcomer who said he had learnt a huge amount by tailing the official photographer at his brother's wedding. He admitted he wasn't able to get the same pictures, but said it was a superb way of learning. His pictures told the story.
Then there's the opportunity of learning from experience. This means that you try out all the techniques and see how they work for you. Yes, you will make mistakes, but you will learn from these as well. And if at first you don't succeed, as they say in the classics, try, try and try again! This could be your most important digital photography lesson!
