People shots(yet another which course question)
I found this site just some hours ago by sheer coincidence and after some research I think I'll maybe enroll on one of your courses. I'm quite excited about this!.
What I would like is to learn how to improve my people photo skills. I've found two courses that could suit me:
I think that David Bathgate's course appeals more to me, but I'm a little worried that it might be maybe too basic (skill level 3) for me (on the technique side, that is). I've had photography as my hobby for long time (although I haven't taken it seriously until about a year ago) so I know (or I think I know ;-) the basics.
Thank you so much!
Thanks for your interest in BetterPhoto's courses! I can understand that you might be hesitant, but the skill level is really just a guide. In People Photography Up-Close and Personal, David would like everyone to have at least a working knowledge of their cameras. Beyond that, this is really a terrific course for all skill levels. David is a working photojournalist, and his course emphasizes the following: shaking the fear of making close-in people shots; and creating portraits and environmental portraits that stand out with impact and emotion. If you haven't already, check out the People Photography Up-Close and Personal course outline:
Also, just in case you haven't read the course outline for Street Photography, here it is:
In addition, you might want to consider David Bathgate's Photojournalism: Telling the Story in Pictures class, which is designed for intermediates and up. Since it deals with photojournalism, it really is a people photography type of course. Here's the outline:
Hope this helps, Pedro!
