So after around six months of going round in circles on this, I’ve decided to take a different direction.
I’ve found a course on iTunesU aimed at middle school students…it could be a good start. I’ve also found a good local class but may hold off on doing this until my weekends get a bit more free :-) 1 month ago
...and have been into it and had a real appreciation for it since I was in highschool. We could finally afford to get a good camera but now i want to learn more about framing a great photo and capturing moments 14 months ago
Thinking about and researching photography classes and/or photojournalism classes…really want to get more into this!
Haven’t found a whole lot yet but just getting started :) 21 months ago
An eye for beautiful photos can be developed. I read many books, by John Hedgecoe and other authors I can’t recall. Also, I pored through magazines like Life, National Geographics, etc. That way, I developed and refined (over a period of several years) an appreciation for form, patterns, textures, color, lighting, shadows, harmonies, contrast, actions, expressions, etc. I admired works like Henri Cartier Bresson’s, Robert and Frank Capa, but never copied them. All in all it was a very satisfying hobby and journey. 22 months ago
