decor maison





see: decor maison latest wallpaper collection AND their awesome campaign! yes all these dresses are made of their wallpaper! *via emmas designblogg*

i've been thinking to take some photography course for a while now, but i don't know if it's really worth it or not, just because i've seen so many great pictures come out from all these young self taught photographers. errr.. yeah but unfortunately i don't have that talent. what do you think, would a lot of practices be enough or would it be really helpful to take a course?

  4. Many great photographers are self taught. But when it comes down to it, they still have to find material to read....whether it be their camera's manuel or stuff online or old books.

    I am not one of them. I'm taking courses with the New York Institute of Photography. It is a CERTIFICATE course, but you will learn everything you need to know about f stops, shutter, aperture, distance, technical terms. JUST EVERYTHING.

    I think this is just as good as getting a degree in it because the photography industry moves so quickly. New cameras come out every year. Five years ago people still used film cameras, but not so much anymore. The year 2006 was the first year digital cameras outsold film cameras.

    So I say, even if you just want to improve your skills and don't want to be a professional, it's worth the investment! The courses you can do online and through the mail! You get LIVE feedback on your work and you have three years to complete the course from your sign up date. Most get it done in 18 months!

  5. What beautiful pictures!!!

    Hmmm...I think it would be helpful to take a course. Maybe you can experiment and learn to use certain things you'll need to know, but perhaps a course could teach you things outside the practical aspects too. It may give you new perspective and how to develop your own photographic style. I think it doesn't hurt! It can only help :)

  7. I must say that I learned quite a lot from studying it, but also managed to understand basic principles of photography before doing any official study. But I suppose it helped having an ex boyfriend who is a photographer that helped a lot! I think just try taking a lot of photos on what you can, and see if you think the investment is worth it.
