How did you learn photography...??
1987 till 2006 self learned film on a pentax, 2006 to date here on digi. This forum rocks with lots of info and helpfull folks:thumbup:
"Self taught" which boils down to taking pictures, asking for feedback on them, researching various topics, etc. This is not a past tense thing... I'm always learning and suspect I always will be.
I have learned a lot from the folks on this forum.
Trial & Error...lol
Oh yeah ... lots of error here ... and my family considers the whole hobby a trial ...
Started - December 07
Really started like a manick - christmas day - arrival of sigma 70-300mm
Self taught all the way - much of it being through forums with feedback on photos as well as just reading through posts that caught my eye - a lot of tips picked up this way.
TPF and other like forums are fantastic resources - offering up free comments, advice and ideas - something very hard to find locally!
so I have not even been shooting a year and as far as I have reached today I know there is still a very very long road to walk!
Started with a pinhole camera in cub souts and went from there
I've gone to photography class but... I've learned more from the internet then my teacher.
Gee, I have noooooo idea what you're talking about.
Self taught & apprenticed...sort of.
Started off borrowing my uncle's camera at about 14 years old. My parents bought me my first camera for my 15th (Minolta X-370), and I started shooting for the high school yearbook & newspaper. The yearbook teacher was the Art teacher and a semi-pro photographer, my HS guidance counselor was also a pro photographer, and taught a 2 student-per-semester Photojournalism class, which counted toward English credit, and the pro photographer who did class, group, & senior pics also took me under his wing.
i learned the basics of manual mode and such in college. It was all film so that is all i knew. then i went digital and there was so much more to learn. slong with it came lots of trial and error
