    Photography school will teach you the technical skills needed to take good pics, but more importantly it will teach you to think like a photographer so don't worry about the quality of your pics now.

    The only input I have is to remember the rule of thirds as a general rule when shooting outdoors or really whatever...should be one third sky, two thirds land or vice versa, and the subjest should not be in the center....that is all I got and may be incorrect but a family member has been a photographer for years and he told me this.

    how does one "think like a photographer" :dunno: i have never went to school or ant thing, just trying to learn stuf on my own, and i am getting more into photography, just bought a d70 a few months ago...


    but what do you mean buy thinking like one... cause i have always kinda looked at things as a picture, kinda putting a imaginary frame around a scene, or thinking to myself wow that would make a awesome picture....


    and i have thought like this long before i got into photography...:dunno:

    is that kinda what you mean?



    not tying to hijack or nothing but heres a shot i took recently...

    Thinking like a photographer really means two things.

    1. Having the ability to look at a scene and isolate the picture within.

    2. Pre-visualizing a picture in your mind and then going about and creating it.

    The first generally means being able to look at a subject and compose a picture that isolates the interesting aspects. It also means being able to look at a scene and imagine what it would look like under different lighting conditions.

    The second is what commercial photographers do all the time...that is, they have to create a photo in their mind and then bring about the background, subject and light to make it happen.

    Oh, and nice pic btw. :bigthumb:
