So you have a fancy DSLR camera, huh? The question is… do you know how to use it? After spending a lot of time on Pinterest, I came to the conclusion that I needed to improve my photography skills. I’m sure many of you are in the same boat. So I would like to share my review of the Shot Rockers online photography course (+ you will have an opportunity to sign up to win the course).
This past Christmas, my wonderful husband bought me a DSLR camera. I was so excited. I needed better photos, but when it came time to take pictures, I found myself still reaching for my point and shoot camera. I shied away from my new DSLR camera. Everything about it seemed so intimidating. When I did use it, I always used the automatic mode. At the end of the day, my new camera hadn’t really helped me much. Then a fellow outdoor blogger, Jessica from Bring the Kids introduced me to ShotRockers.com.
Shot Rockers is an educational photography site dedicated to getting people the best photos possible. They provide photography tips, courses and training.
What I Like About Shot Rockers
Easy to understand lessons. I’m currently taking the course, Beginners Guide to Better Photos. It is a month long class. Each class has a short 10-15 minute video along with the written lesson. For me, this has been a great way to learn.
Nice manageable class times. Lessons take about 20-30 minutes to complete which allow them to fit easily into your busy schedule.
Go at your own pace. Even though the classes are organized in small chunks, we all have those days when it’s even hard to find 30 minutes. With this class, if you miss a day or two of class, you just come back and start where you left off.
Courses are affordable and convenient. I’ve looked into taking photography classes. Most of them are much more expensive, you have to drive to their location and rearrange your schedule so you can attend the classes. The Beginners Guide to Better Photos provides you with 28 lessons for $119. That comes to $4.25 per lesson. And you don’t have to spend money on gas, hire a babysitter or spend money for a hotel room (like you would for some of the weekend workshops taught at hotels).
