How To Make Photos Without Owning A Camera As A Beginner
The best and only way I know is for you to become an apprentice.
Let’s face it. I love to talk about things that are real, not some imaginations in my head. Real life is, well, real. You own no camera; you have no experience as a photographer and you want to make images; you want to be a professional one day. There is no money to purchase a camera. What do you think must be done?
You approach a photographer you wish to learn from. Most times, you only wish to approach just anybody who has a camera. Do that. And learn from them.
If we go a hundred years back, we will realize this truth. 90% of things were studied by being apprentices. Today, apprenticeship is looked discouraged. It’s seen as a thing of the past. But hey, here’s a truth you’ve not known. Apprenticeship is the most practical thing I have ever seen. There’s nothing more practical. Everything is hands on.
Some of the greatest artists, you know, especially painters, were all apprentices. They learned at the feet of a master. This is way simpler than learning on YouTube. This time, you have a person guiding you, a person taking you through the process of discipline.
Don’t you long to learn from another and make YouTube University more like a backup plan?
What will my advice to the beginner be?
Learn at the feet of a master you cherish. Be an apprentice. This will do you more good.
