Digital Photography Training

Lots of Training available for Digital Photography!

Digital photography training is available in different forms, from one-off courses, to courses that can last for years and end up with a formal qualification. Whether you want to know more about how to use your camera, or how to improve your techniques, then some sort of digital photography training is probably a very good idea. The challenge though is how to decide exactly what sort of digital photography training to go for.

If you buy a high-end single lens reflex (SLR) camera, you may find that a free course is offered as part of the deal. Even professional photographers often take these offers up because they can learn about the features of that particular model. So don't ever poo-poo a free course. Investigate the learning possibilities and then decide if it's worth spending the time it will take. It probably will be worth it.

Different camera distributors also often offer courses so people can learn about the type of cameras they represent. They sometimes invite well known photographers to present courses, or to do hands-on training. For example, they notify people who recently bought cameras, about special offers that might include a wildlife safari with one of the pros who has produced books on the subject. This type of digital photography training can be a lot of fun, and you can learn a lot. But it can also be quite expensive, and unless you want (or more likely need) a holiday, it will be time consuming as well.

Then there are a whole range of classes and courses that you can attend or sign up for online and at a whole lot of different schools and colleges. Since most people find they learn by doing, make sure that there is loads of practical work involved. This way you can experiment and have an experienced person comment on your pictures. This type of input is invaluable.

The question though is whether or not you want a qualification after you have studied. If you do want physical evidence of what you have done, this might help you to get a job, but it is not necessarily going to make you take better pictures. So think hard before you decide on your own type of digital photography training.
