News – Interesting Photo Web Sites PDF

9 04 2018

On Tuesday April 10th Trevor Awalt is providing a PDF about Interesting Photo Web Sites, which is really a list of resources on where to learn photography on the internet. Due to time constraints Trevor will briefly show how each section is laid out and answer any questions.

The PDF Interesting Photo Web Sites v1.3 is a list of resources and general descriptions, and not intended to be a complete comprehensive list.

Some of the resources are free and some are paid, as subscriptions or pay per product.

Photography training is a huge industry and can provide additional income for professionals (retoucher, photographer, business strategy/manager, etc.). The training can be in many forms; streaming video, podcasts, DVD, eBooks, apps and tools.

Free doesn’t necessarily mean mediocre and paid isn’t always of the highest quality. You must read reviews and ask opinions of similar skilled photographers who have taken the particular training you are interested in. Do your home work so you spend your money wisely.

Each bit of training you invest in, whether it be your time and/or money, provides many methods, suggestions and recommendations which are not always industry best practices and/or may contradict. Take the information and methods presented that best suits your photography, then evaluate and adopt them based on your results.

Your photography will evolve over time which may require you to revisit and re-evaluate what you have learned, remember learning is a process.

Question: How long or how many hours does it take to become a competent photographer?
Answer: Some suggest 10,000 hours or 10 years, similar to many other professional discipline. It really depends on how much work you put in and how much you practice whether it be on assignment or personal projects.

If photography is your hobby, then your assignments are the goal of the day which you establish for yourself and all or most of your work is personal projects.

If photography is your business then you also have to concern yourself with the relationships, networking, business aspects as well as the photography. Much more than just technique and creativity.

Remember training and practice go hand in hand, doing either without the other can make the journey longer or more difficult.

Things to remember:
– manage your investment
– get out and shoot
– and enjoy the journey
