Do you like to take photograph’s or want to get into this as just a hobby or even more turn it into a career? Are you having trouble finding the best place to get help in achieving your goals as a photographer? Why not take the cheap way and learn online from the experts. I don’t know if you heard about the Digital Photography School blog but it’s an amazing website to begin your education in the photography world. There is even a message board (forum) to join to be able to communicate with other newbies and experts to have all of your questions answered. Need tips on what camera or lenses to buy? Just create a thread on there message board to get a response.
If you are a die-hard blogger then you might know that this website/forum belongs to Darren Rowse of problogger.net. This was one of his very first blogs that he started that turned into a business for him. The Digital Photography School blog has a range of topic’s that it covers. I’ll mention them below if you have not visited the blog yet.
- Photography Tips and Tutorial
- Cameras and Equipment
- Post Production
As you can tell, these 3 topic’s are important to any photographer. All of this information is right at your fingertips. No need to buy online course’s or even go to a school. You can teach yourself by following this blog and joining there forum. Just think in a few weeks to a few months you may feel comfortable and start a photograph type of blog to showcase your work or even create a local photograph business for your town or neighboring towns and make some extra money or a full-time living. When my brother got married 5 years ago, they hired a photographer to do the pictures and a video (extra money for video) but that photographer made a big payday for 1 day of work. Of course this person had the right equipment and understood what to do when taking pictures in sunlight or poor light conditions.
Once you learn the tricks of the trade and get the right equipment for the type of stuff you want to take pictures of, you can be just like the professionals or somewhat close to them. If you have a few hours to kill, start reading some of the latest blog posts on Darrens photo blog and snoop around on the message board. You’d be surprise how much you can learn from reading threads on a forum and asking question’s. No need to pay to go to a photograph type of school to put you in debt. Teach yourself by using the internet to find out the answers to your questions. A good start is what I had talked to you about earlier in this blog post.
Hey, if you have the extra money to go to a real school, then by all means go for it. The cheap way would be to visit the website and message board I have linked you to.
Have a great weekend.
