How to become a good photographer
How to become a Photographer ? This question is very often asked, whenever I conduct a photography workshop or meet new aspiring photographers. I can't straight away say, that you join my photography course and I will ensure that I make you a successful photographer. It sounds a bit commercial but that's ofcourse one of the ways to become a photographer. I cannot vouch for any other course but can most confidently talk about my own program.
Are you talented enough ? Yes, this is the most important question which can only be answered by you. If you wish to become a photographer because you will get a chance to shoot beautiful models and all the glamour attached to it, think again. It's not all that simple. If you are not talented enough, simply by knowing how to operate a camera will not help you accomplish your dreams. There is a lot of hard work at every stage of success.
Are you hard working. One may not be born creative but if one makes the right moves one can enhance the creativity that one has. However, if you are not creative at all, it may take longer for you to understand the concepts and know what creativity is all about.
Creativity has different perspectives. What is great for one creative person may not be the same for another. It's relative and changes from person to person and from time to time. It's always in context. It's meaningless, if not required or not relevant to a particular situation.
Self learning is great as long as you know the direction you are heading for. If you are working hard in the wrong direction, it wont help.
Photography courses are a great support if you have a good photography mentor to teach you the fine nuances of Photography. Someone who can guide you at every step of creativity and help you develop your own unique style of photography. I do not insist on imposing my style of photography to my students but let them develop their own signature style of shooting the way that comes naturally to them. I emphasis a lot on the aspect that photography is all about the subject and not so much about the camera. If you can answer -"what to shoot", means you will make it happen. "How to shoot" is the next step and is easier to master as compared to knowing what to shoot. Photography is an extension of your own self. It's a medium or a tool to express yourself.
It's quite easy to become a photographer. You can learn through books, one of my online photography courses or my face to face mentorship program at delhi. It takes a while and a lot of effort and persistence to develop and grow as a good creative photographer. I try to help all my students develop this creativity during the tenure of their course as well as when they move out in the field of photography to persue the genre of their choice.
Many aspiring photographers wish to become fashion Photographers. There is nothing wrong about it. But the sad part at times is that they just want to learn fashion photography without learning photography !! If you can shoot well and have the confidence of taking pictures with the ability to handle your camera and the lights in the studio as well as outdoors, you can indulge in any genre of photography. that is the next step, once you have learn photography. If a person is not interested in wildlife photography, why should he pursue it? Its is a combination of the knowledge of Photography and wildlife. Same way, it's a combination of Photography and Fashion. Not that you need to know how to make a garment but you should have that basic sense of styling along with an understanding of Fashion. A Food photographer does not necessarily know how to cook!
