How can I start learning how to take professional quality photographs?

You have just bought a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex Camera) or advanced point and shoot camera with DSLR capabilities, now what? You might be asking yourself, “How can I start learning how to take professional quality photographs?” Unfortunately, there is no secret magic sauce that will automatically create pro-quality photos, regardless of how much you spent on your camera. In fact, without learning photography and lighting, your expensive DSLR is going to end up creating slightly nicer point-and-shoot-quality images.

 

PEOPLE TAKE GREAT PHOTOS, NOT CAMERAS.

The fastest way to get better photos isn’t by buying a new, expensive camera.

 It’s by learning how to control the one you have!

So, I’ve created the DEMYSTIFY ~ Your Camera workshops to help you learn how to get the most out of your camera. The goal of these workshops is to teach you the techniques and insights that will make you a better photographer. What you must realize and accept is that this is not going to be a quick and easy 30 minute process. In fact, if there is a book, workshop, or course that claims anything remotely close to “become a pro-photographer in 24 hours,” then run the other way as fast as possible.

Becoming a great photographer does not happen overnight. In fact, it probably won’t even happen within 6 months or a year. Truly great photographers will tell you that they are still learning to this day, even though they may have been shooting for over 30 years! I m a constant student of the work and continue to learn every day! Start on the right foot now by accepting the fact that learning photography is a journey, a life-long journey that will be very rewarding regardless of whether it is your career or simply your hobby.

Now that you have just bought a DSLR, what’s next? Understanding photography and exposure in regards to aperture, shutter speed and ISO are crucial, so starting here with a DEMYSTIFY class is a great beginning.  Check out all the courses offered above.  Or, IF YOU’RE READY NOW – sign up here.
