Photo Education

Posted: February 18, 2017 in Uncategorized
Once you have purchased a camera, lenses, tripod, and other needs for your photography, your only need now is education.
I see to many photographers endlessly spending money upgrading their equipment ever time a new camera comes out.
My most successful image that I have ever produced was with a Fuji S2 camera back in 2004, which is many generations ago in the digital camera age.
That camera could still produce an award winning image today, so what is the need for a newer camera.
Well I did eventually upgrade to a Nikon D7000 because of a new feature like live view, but I haven’t had a need to upgrade to another camera in 6 years.
If you have some extra money available to invest in your photography, you are far better off spending it on educating yourself on making images, rather than on more equipment that won’t give you a clue on how to make better images.
I’m going to speak at photo conference today along with other pro photographers, where smart photographers have spent their money to attend and hear the pros teach them about making better images.
Search out a photo conference, workshops, books, videos, or online photo courses, and you will be much farther ahead at producing great images, because you won’t learn it from your next new camera.

    I so agree. Its interesting how everyone is after the latest gear and are more interested in what camera you photograph than asking about how you learned and became a better photographer. The best camera in the world won’t make you better without instruction, mentoring and practice, practice practice. I really love your macro mentoring course. I have learned to become a better photographer with the same gear. Thanks so much!

      Christine, thanks and glad you like the course. Those who invest in education progress at a much faster rate than the self taught photographer.
