These are the crowds I like when I speak – this was at the recent Henry’s Photo Show at the International Centre in Toronto last month:
That said – small classes also have their charm. Large groups make it easier for the speaker to see where the interest is – there is a “crowd spirit”, if you will – but small groups are much more individual in nature.
Either way, if you are interested in photography: today is a better time than ever for training. And it is more important than ever that you do it – a few hours’ training saves you years!
If you are new to digital photography, a course will teach you things such as:
- Extras to add to your camera
- How to Focus properly
- How to use – and not use – the “scene modes”; and when to overrule the camera
- How to use Exposure Compensation
- When to use -and not use- Flash
The kind of stuff camera manuals will never tell you.
