When I was first getting started into photography I felt completely like a fish out of water. The really scary thing was that there wasn’t a soul in sight to help. Desperate to learn but not a clue where to begin, I joined my first meet up group.
There was always someone, or something to be learned from the people who attended. My only wish is that I had joined earlier so I could have avoided many of the common pitfalls.
I’m now feeling comfortable as an amateur photographer and owe it to the support of others photographers. Although I enjoy the other meet up groups, to travel into Vancouver for every event is not always possible and besides, if you’re not quick the sessions fill up and you find yourself out of luck.
If you’re really serious about learning more about photography, give a photography group a try! In fact give Lower Mainland Photography group a try
