Basics of photography
AFRIEND and a student of mine few years back asked me what course to take for his niece who’s interested in photography. He mentioned if it was a good idea to take an editing course after getting the basics. Although I think that editing is part of photography, just like developing a film and printing it in a photopaper in a darkroom is part of photography, I think that understanding the light for a particular genre is a more effective training.
Learning photography is quite easy, especially now that technology has contributed a lot. With just a few steps, you can already start taking photos. But to learn the art of capturing light takes a lot of practice. It takes a lot of getting out there and spending time shooting and waiting for the right moment.”
