So lets recap:- Photography is visual communication.
Did I mention cameras ? NO. Did I mention buying expensive gear? NO.
Did I name camera or smartphone brands ? NO. Did I say videography ? NO.
So what is Visual Communication for Photographers & Smartphone Photographers?
Photos that don’t communicate are meaningless.
When I teach photography I teach you:- Guess what ? How to see and how to communicate visually.
Photography is a very powerful medium for self expression and communication
when you understand what you are doing.
So what about Cameras and lenses ? Cameras are merely the tools you use to communicate visually.
Outstanding photos have been taken for decades by understanding these two words:- VISUAL COMMUNICATION
So what do I teach about Cameras ? Digital Cameras have lots of “bells and whistles”. If you need to start with Camera Basics I simplify things so we get past the techno babble and move on as quickly as possible to seeing and communicating.
Use a smartphone for your photography ? No problem. It’s just the same VISUAL COMMUNICATION
