I had a fascinating conversation last night with one of my privately mentored students, Trish Macharla. We were chatting on TOG TALK, my weekly...
I have taught hundreds of photographers over the last few years. Most of them come to me listing their frustrations, their failures and what seems to be a constant battle with their cameras. They have all been on a journey, some very long, others relatively short, but their stories remain quite similar.
Everyone wants to take great photos of their kids, great photos their holiday, of sunsets and of course their pets… they want to be able to get those lovely blurred out backgrounds. But finally they realise that they need to learn to operate their cameras properly, to take control of their them.
