New Camera? Decisions, decisions

Posted by:

Should you buy a new camera or invest in learning photography skills?

We often spend money on new gear with the hopes of better image quality but aren’t always satisfied with the results.

New camera can not take better photos!

Why is that?

The simple answer to this common experience is: digital cameras are just electronic devices with no reasoning capabilities. As smart as technology has gotten, it’s a mistake to let it make the decisions for you! As with any tool, your best approach is to learn what your digital camera can do for you and how you can take control over it. Have you ever felt overwhelmed by all the buttons and settings? Our workshops have one primary goal: to help you learn new skills in easy to understand steps. We also believe that hands-on experience is absolutely necessary in this process.

Does a simpler digital camera help you take better pictures?

Not necessarily. There are so many controls in today’s cameras that even very basic digital cameras have lots of buttons and dials!

Even smart phones can make good photos when you learn photography

Does reading the camera’s manual help?

Reading camera manuals rarely, if ever, help us become better photographers. Can reading through our vehicle’s manual help anyone become a better driver? New skills are best achieved by a combination of knowledge (theory) and application (practice).

Camera manual dose not explain when and why using different settings, it just explains HOWS
