Photography (in general)
The results from last week’s photography survey are back! The overwhelming majority of you want to know more about your DSLR and Photoshop, which I’m crazy excited about! :)
At 17-years-old, I started out with a used and refurbished Canon 20D. I didn’t know anything about my camera or Photoshop, nor did I know anyone who could help me! I became an information hunter and found some fabulous resources. I’m going to share those resources with you today!
- Read your camera’s manual. I know, it’s boring and dry, but it’s helpful. To make it more exciting, read a small section and then go outside and test out what you learned. For example, if you read the section on “Aperture Priority Mode”, go outside and take pictures of a leaf, applying the knowledge you just gained. You’ll be surprised by the differences.
- Buy the book Designing with Photos. My little brother actually got this for me as a Christmas present. This was my “photography Bible” when I was still learning. It’s beautifully put together, easy to understand and will get your creativity flowing.
- Go “like” Rock the Shot on Facebook. They feature articles from photographers on a variety of topics. This is the best internet resource I’ve found.
- Find photographers who inspire you and analyze their work. What do you love about it? Here are some of my favorites:
I hope these resources help and wish you the very best of luck! If you have any questions, please type them in the box below or shoot me an email at email@example.com. I’ll help in any way I can. :)
