    I purchased a Minolta (20 Mega Pixels High Wi-Fi Digital Camera with 35x Optical Zoom, 1080p HD Video & 3″ LCD) to use on my recent vacation and realized my limitations while trying to use it to capture what my eyes were seeing. Do I need a real professional camera with lenses to swap in/out to make your classes worthwhile or will my simple camera do? I have another vacation next year and want to be better prepared with the Minolta or a different camera with more lens options. If I can learn to take great pictures with my Minolta that would be great. If I have to, I’m willing to go for something like the Canon Rebel T6… Please advise.

    I dont know anything about photography,I suddenly developed interest in it. How long will it take me to master the skills because I intend to make it a source of livelihood.

    • If ya don’t know anything about photography how can you be sure you want to make it a source of livelihood?

      Study and practice photography. Be a photographer first.

      If you like being a photographer, then maybe you’d like being a professional photographer.

    Getting to Know Your Camera, 6/3

  7. Hello.
    I am a beginner photographer who knows how to work the camera a bit, but would like to learn more about exposure, composition and lighting. I am interested on a fast workshop as I am leaving the country in two months. I would prefer 1:1 sessions. How much does it cost? When can we have these? and Where would we have the classes?

    Thank you.

  8. LEONARD says:

    I would like some more info on your Intro Photo on June 1.
    Will it help someone like me?I have been collecting pictures with all kinds of cameras for 45yrs, and now have thousands of non-professional taken pictures. For Christmas I got a Canon Rebel T4i to take better pictures as I travel the world, Yes! I am retired. Now I want to capture my life on film, past, present, to the end.

    Thank You
