This month's Black + White Photography Magazine has a supplement entitled Photography Holidays & Courses, the ultimate guide 2011. I haven't bothered to count them but the cover states there are 100+ photo workshops inside. These seem to cover the art from start to finish in places as far apart as the Northern Isles to the Falklands.
Having thumbed through it, I got to wondering just how many sources of help, instruction and advice there are available to the budding wannabee photographer as well as those more practised in the art. When you think about it more closely, when you add them all up it must run into 10's of thousands, and it begs the question, why aren't we all taking, to utilise PRADAR-speak, stunning pictures?
You could fill a library with books, a few yards of shelves with CD's and videos and still not become over proficient. That begs the question is there too much info, does it all become too bewildering to the newcomer. One book on photoshop should, or could, put one off for life!
Still as Robert Doisneau says, " If I knew how to take a good picture, I'd take one every time".
