My friend David…
…who lent me his camera…
…has tipped me off this morning that the Groupon deal of the day is a 2-hour beginner’s photography class here in Atlanta.
So, I’m buying it. I am really excited about learning how to use this massive hunk of equipment and getting the most out of each photo opportunity. You know, since typical life events don’t tend to happen 35 times until I get all of the settings exaaactly right.
Has anyone out there taken a class on DSLR photography before? I’m planning on bringing both the DSLR that David lent me as well as my trusty digital camera (might as well, right?). Are there any questions I should ask (other than the million I’m sure I’ll ask anyway)? Did you love it/hate it/think it was a waste of time and money? I’d love to hear from you about this!
I've never taken a DSLR class per say but I took a lot of photography in High School before DSLR were affordable for the general public. I do know there are a number of courses you can take online like the 12 weeks to better photography from Two peas in a pod. Oh and go and buy the the book Understanding Exposure. It is by far considered the best book for beginners and hobby photographers. You could also join Flickr and see what local photography groups there are. They typically meet each month for a photo walk. They also hare tips, people selling used equipment, and things like that.
