photography classes.

Well, the title pretty much says it: I am looking for a course on the basics of photography. As always are there quite some offers out there, but probably not all worth the time and money...

Anyone made some good or bad experiences here?

How basic?

* principles of photography (composition, light, 'rule of thirds', etc)
* or how to manipulate shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc (aka "how to use manual mode")

???

Maybe he is not sure Nak, I know what he means, he probably just wants a well rounded introduction to his camera and how to use it?

Have a look at Club Snap forum, they have all this kinda stuff on there :)

I've seen beginners who'd answer either question hence I asked. Some people want the general introduction to photography (first question), some just want to learn how to use their newly-bought SLR's (second question). Some, both camps (first camera is an SLR).

Alright: My answer would be... both!

Short explanation: We (the wife and me) got interested in photography through another hobby, diving. After years of taking unclear pictures of fish from terrible angles did we slowly upgrade our compact system (a "better" compact camera, large external flash and so on...). This included the understanding of the absolute basics of shutter speed and aperature, but not much more.

Now we arrived at the point that we want to get further and got us an entry level DSLR (a 600D). Shooting with it is fun and we tried out some stuff on our own, but I think it is time for a class. I think this should encompass everything from the "art" aspects like composition to the "craft" aspects on "how to use a camera to get the effect I want"...

I got into photography and went for lessons with Willy Foo at Live Studios in Niven road.....very reasonably priced, but more importantly I got to understand and learn a great deal and now can take some decent shots....
good learning environment for Beginners....then intermediate and then Advanced

Hi Chris,

You can join the class to learn the basics. Or the other practical way is join the photo hunting.
Go together with some beginners, usually there'a a gathering for this, you can got the information in Clubsnap Forum.

For me, keep shooting, first you can try with the P mode, then AV mode, then you can familiar with the M mode. <obvious solicitation removed. MOD warning: another one and you'll be banned>
Thank you
