It has been a long road, but I hope everyone enjoyed my 4 part series on digital black and white photography. One thing that wasn’t mentioned in my tips though, be sure you take your photographs in colour! Shooting in black and white mode on your camera will eliminate all of the colour information you can use to create dynamic black and white photos.
This week’s tip is a simple one featuring a few avenues with which you can improve your photography. With school starting and fall approaching, there are many continuing education courses in photography available at local high schools and colleges. The courses offered often have a wide range of skills that they build upon, and there are courses for photographers of all abilities. I have taken a few courses over the years at my local community college and found them rewarding. I have also mentioned camera and photography clubs in the past as a way to meet with other people who share a common interest as well as provide a forum for you to improve upon your own photography. Many clubs will be starting in the coming weeks so if that is something that interests you, look up your local club and attend a meeting.There are always ways to improve you photography. From snapshooters to professionals, everyone can benefit from interacting with other photographers.
Until next week, happy shooting.
