The world of photography has changed. The advent of the digital era means that more of us can access high-quality cameras on our phones. And with ‘shoot and click’ cameras also offering fantastic opportunities, it is no wonder we are all seeking our inner Annie Leibovitz or David Bailey.
But, just because we have access to some amazing digital photography kit, including photo manipulation software, it doesn’t mean that we all know how to compose and shoot the perfect photo.
What makes a great photo?
The rule of thirds and symmetry are vital in creating a solid composition, and then there is the emotion and the story of the snapshot in time to convey.
A fantastic photograph plays on the imagination, posing as many questions as it answers. Lighting, hue, colour and contrast all play a part but what do these look like? How do you find them and use them to create an even better snapshot?
Would you like to be a better photographer?
There are two ways of becoming better at photography. One is to keep taking photos, keep experimenting, keep asking questions.
The other is to enrol on a photography course.
Don’t fancy going back to school?
Enrolling on a course doesn’t mean heading back to the classroom because, with distance learning courses, you can study when and where it suits you most.
And with a practical skill like photography, an online course is simply perfect. Follow the course units, taking photos and creating your own photo essays and assignments is the perfect way to not only learn new skills but to put them into practice.
