Did you know that 1.8 billion digital photographs are uploaded to the internet daily? With so many people having access to photography, you'd think a lot of them would be better.
It takes a lot to become a good photographer and it's more than just pointing your camera or smartphone at something cool and hitting the shutter button.
Let's see what students can learn about photography at school, why anyone interested in photography should study it, the challenges that every photographer will face, and how private photography tuition can help you take much better photos.
Despite the popularity of photography, when it comes to teaching the subject, it's not one of the most popular subjects taught in schools.
The first real opportunity students in secondary school get to study photography is during an Art and Design GCSE, which only covers photography alongside several other topics.
As the course covers art and design more generally, it isn't dedicated to the study of photography. Students will also cover drawing, painting, printing, and ceramics. When they do get to study photography, however, they'll get to cover traditional and digital photography, the ethics of photography, the various settings on a camera, and photography techniques to help them take better photos.
After GCSE, students will have the opportunity to learn more photography skills at A Level or move onto a university course if they want to continue learning about photography. Of course, the latter isn't free and is quite the commitment in terms of fees and time!
You only need to look at the difference between your friend's Instagram account and the work of a professional photographer to see that the best equipment doesn't necessarily make you a fantastic photographer.
While you may know some professional photographers who are self-taught, they still had to study photography, the equipment they use, and the various techniques and skills used by photographers before they could start taking excellent photos and charging for them.
Studying photography will give you a better understanding of what makes a photo good. If you don't understand concepts like texture, line, colour, shape, form, and tone, you'll never really be able to progress beyond the level of an amateur photographer.
You also need an understanding of how cameras work. While this doesn't mean you need a degree in physics, you will have to understand how light behaves, how cameras capture said light, and what the various settings on your camera do and how you can use them to take better pictures.
There are also certain ethical concerns when it comes to photography and every photographer must understand what they are. When taking photos of a private event, you may need permission from the attendees, for example, or when taking photos of young subjects, it's advised you get permission from the parents, first.
Amateur photography being so widespread has led to the misconception that photography is easy and that advanced technology negates the need for photography skills. Look at the wedding snaps taken on your friend's smartphone and the professional photography the happy couple paid for and you'll quickly see that it takes skills and experience to take good photos.
As photography relies a lot on technology, there's a lot of information that aspiring photographers need to wrap their heads around before they can start taking pictures. As we mentioned, they'll need to learn how cameras work and how all the different settings will affect how their pictures come out. It takes more than a few photography workshops to become an amazing photographer.
Photography isn't cheap, either. Being able to afford the equipment is probably one of the biggest challenges faced by photographers, especially if they're doing it as a hobby. Professional photographers can often justify the cost as their work will pay for it and the better work they can do, the more money they can earn. Amateur photographers, on the other hand, might struggle to pay hundreds or thousands on camera equipment if they just want to take better holiday photos.
Even if money isn't that much on an issue, you should know that expensive photography equipment won't automatically make your photos better. The general quality may improve with better equipment but it can't improve the composition of your photos or guarantee that you'll use the right settings on your fancy new piece of kit.
If you've decided that you want to learn more about photography, a private photography tutor is a great way to learn. For one, they will provide bespoke lessons on the subject that are adapted to you and how you like to learn and support you on your journey to becoming a photography master.
Whether you need help with your photography course at school, college, or university, are learning more about photography to become a profession, or just interested in photography as a hobby, the teaching on your private course will be appropriate to you and your goals.
If there's a specific type of photography you want to focus on, they can do that, too. If you're not interested in digital photography, no problem! A private tutor can focus on traditional photography if that's what you want.
A private photography course won't just help you learn new skills, it can also help you to make heads and tails of all the gear. You can always get creative to create photos with cheaper gear but it's always handy to have all the information you'll need when it comes to investing in equipment.
