So, just out of interest, where did you learn photography?
It could be argued that photography isn't 'learnt', but more of something you develop with practice; but more likely, a combination of these; but I'll still ask: books, forums, school, course, friends, other?
For me, it's a bit from books, forums, tutorials online, friends, and a lot of shooting.
Ummm i did photography during high school for 2yrs. Learnt all the basics of the SLR! and also developing photos the old school way! =P I think that was most interesting!!!
When i got my 300D i mostly learned from frens and some websites. I guess i got the shuttertalk community now too! =P
If anyone knows an online tutorial that would be helpful!!
where did i learn ...
my dad just gave me my AV-1 one day ..
told me how to load it .. and how to focus it .. .
showed me the light meter ..
and away i went ...
i picked up the rest of the stuff by playing .. and learning off friends .. ie the rule of thirds and all that ...
have never learnt it formally though ...i should one day ..
yeah ..tafe sounds good .. mabye there is some other hptoography colleges somewhere ..
we should check it out ...
Yeah ..starting off with film makes you much more cautious cause of the cost...
however .. i still love digital imaging ^^
I am learning by fiddling and little 'snippets' I pick up from here =)
I am also thinking about doing Photography as an Elective at school, It is a 2 year course, year 9 and 10. I'll make my mind up when i see all the choices.
i thought about doing it in highschool .. but i didnt .. iwish i did ..
materials technology was useless ...
I would have taken it if my school offered it, but the closest they had was "media studies" where my 'group' just a group of violent people who enjoyed hurting me infront of the camera; used it as an excuse to tackle me 'for the video'...
I didn't learn anything, it was useless.
hey adamm..do u know where there might be photo courses..i might chek out sae...
my sister did photography.. but she still sucks at using an SLR ...auhahua
yeah i know ..
they have to shoot so much just to get a couple good photos ..
