After The Shutter Clicks

Photography is so much more than just clicking the shutter button. There’s more that happens before the shutter is ever clicked and plenty more that happens after the shutter clicks.

So what happens before?

Well there’s lots of learning to do. All the basics of course and then there’s new techniques and ideas to keep up with. Classes to take, seminars to attend, workshops to learn from, forums to read, book after book to absorb, and good old practice, practice, practice. There’s equipment to purchase like the camera body, lenses, flashes, tripods, triggers, reflectors, lights… and there’s your dark room.
