Years ago, as a struggling college student majoring in Mass Communications, I took a photography course. Oh man, it was so much fun. FINALLY a college class that made sense! A short time later I left college and headed for Atlanta to attend The Portfolio Center. It’s basically art school meets real world in that they teach you skills to work in advertising – photography, copy writing, graphic design. You get the idea. My area of interest was photography.
I later worked for professional photo labs, hung out in photography studios, MARRIED a professional photographer, and eventually learned the secret to taking nice photos. It’s really the best advice and works whether you’re shooting your child or a wedding. Want to hear it?
Shoot beautiful people. It really helps. You’re welcome.
