When I was on holidays in the Australian Outback I noticed a surprisingly large number of people who had just bought a new digital camera and had no idea how to do basic things like turning the flash on/off, taking short movies or photographing small things eg: flowers and getting a sharp photo.
If they’d only read a bit of their camera manuals and visited resources like the Digital Photography School before going on holidays they wouldn’t have been so frustrated and would have returned home with much better photos.
If you’re already a pro photographer than the site isn’t for you. It’s pitched at the mums and dads audience and offers simple tips to help digital camera owners get the most out of their cameras.
Digital Photography School is run by digital photography enthusiast and problogger Darren Rowse with the purpose of helping ordinary people learn and improve their photography by sharing what he and other website visitors have done to achieve better results from their digital cameras.
This ‘School’ is not a formal one by any means. There are no classes, no teachers, no exams – rather it’s a learning environment where Darren thinks out loud about what he knows and in the forum people share what they’re learning by showing photos and asking/answering questions.
