Don’t believe what I, or any of your other teachers, tell you.
If you learn the basics of photography, it doesn’t matter what type of camera you use. Film or digital, Nikon or Canon, as a photographer who has a good understanding of the basics photography, you’ll be able to create photographs with whatever camera is in your hands.
Did you know that there is a law that we should be aware of when we use our flash?
This law applies to ALL flashes; the pop up flash on your camera and the, usually more powerful, separate flash unit that works off of your hot-shoe.
If you don’t know about this law, it could seriously limit your ability to create a photograph.
