Learning Photography: Then and Now

Photojournalism was part of my curriculum in college. For one semester or five months to be exact, we were taught how to hold and load films in camera; the opening and speed needed for a certain subject to shoot. Our professor who also taught the same subject in another state university was good at giving lectures about photography, I wish I was able to record her lectures the whole time. But you know what, she could have taught us to shoot more, to use our camera frequently or expose us to the real world of photography. I don’t have my old camera with me now and did not pursue photography either. But given the opportunity, I would take up short courses to learn more about cameras and learn techniques to shoot better pictures. Well, it’s never too late to learn anything. I just needed to manage my time and yes, I need funds to realize my dream.

Ways of Learning Photography on a Budget

Photography is an art that involves more of passion than any other skills. This is a life skill that can be expensive but taking those special moments in your life is worthwhile. The cheapest way to learn photography is by doing it yourself. You can get learning resources online that are free of charge. You can go through them while learning how to use this skill. Time and effort are also very important while learning your photography lessons. If you have to spend some money to buy a tangle toy then it should not be an overwhelming amount. Plan well and determine your budget for your photography learning sessions.
