Do you love photography but you feel as if you have been left behind because of this new fad called digital photography? Which had replaced your film camera? Or you are just a new in this field?
There are numerous digital photography schools in the country. But in choosing one, make sure that you choose wisely. Remember that it involves your time, money, and prospective learning. So take time in choosing a photography school. Here are some of the points you should take note of in choosing a school.
First, make sure that it is a digital photography school.
There are schools that indicate photography course, which make an average reasonable person think of it as an implied digital photography school. However, some are wise enough not to not indicate the term in their ads and in doing so, they are able to gather students that has no more choice because they have already enrolled.
Second, read every commercial ads and feedbacks.
Evaluate schools according to what the majority thinks of it. Read every feedback and assess what needs of yours would that digital photography school would address. Are you not that good in lens selection? Choosing of subjects? Post processing? High dynamic range imaging? And the like? Well, you could see through the feedbacks, by implication, what field does a particular digital photography school is good at. Match it according to your need after which.
Third, consider the price.
Considering that the current economic situation may not be favourable to most people, you should also see to it that you can afford going to a particular school. The problem here, because, is that some digital photography schools are highly competitive but they really make your pockets fly out of money with its wapping tuition fee. Make sure that your preferred school has reasonable price along with reasonable services worth your money.
Fourth, see to it that their facilities and items are up to date.
Now, this is also a critical part. Your digital photography school might be a good one with reasonable fee, but you would later find out that they are using the first release of digital cameras, possibly with no live view, small lcd, lacks the more important features, no spot metering, and the like. Well that would be unfair for you. So make sure that you ask the personnel of your prospective school about their gadgets and make sure that they are at least up to date, so you could apply what you learn in current situations.
Fifth, make sure that the instructors are professional photographers.
Some digital photography schools have that tendency to hire artists, not photographers, to teach. Their basic reasoning is that artists are more knowledgeable than photographers because every person can shoot images while most are not able to paint. What is the logic there? Photographers are more capable of teaching photographers because they are such, so they are in a better position to impart knowledge to aspirants. Painters are good, yes, that is a given. But in terms of competency in teaching photography, well that is out of the question.
Overall, the combination of these 5 points would really help you out in evaluating which digital photography school to enter in. Once you believe that one school contains most of your specifications, do not hesitate to enroll. Besides in would be to your advantage, learning and having fun at the same good time.
