Photography is not hard. I promise you.
Like anything, it just takes some knowledge and lots of practice. That’s the fun part. Photography is a lot of fun. It’s the kind of activity that you’ll never master and that’s awesome. There’s always something new to learn and the more you do it, the more you’ll improve.
Your improving photographic skills will drive you to continue with it and make it a lifelong hobby or maybe even a business. And maybe that’s why you’re here.
If you’re reading this now, perhaps you’re new to photography. Well, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve been doing photography most of my life. A good portion of my adult life I’ve been a photojournalist (aka a newspaper photographer).
If you want to learn, a photojournalist makes for a uniquely qualified teacher as we’ve been asked to shoot just about everything and in pretty much every lighting scenario you can imagine.
So kick back and enjoy the information I’ve put together for you here. Remember, photography is supposed to be fun…and it is! My goal here is to make it more fun for you.
I’ve put together what I think to be the basics to get you off to a great start.
