Having learned the basics of photography most
serious photographers will wish to improve their performance whether as a
professional photographer or as a serious amateur photographer. Both have
similar objectives in improving the quality of the photograph they create.
However they work in different contexts and will thus have different focuses.
The professional will often work in the framework of a commission and have the
need to produce consistent results. He or she will also wish to develop
the commercial aspects of their business and client handling. The serious
amateur will often work within a looser frame work sometimes more focused on
getting the result and little concerned with the commercial context.
Majken Kruse provides photography tutorials to
both experienced professional photographers who wish to refine and improve their
performance and for those earlier in their professional or amateur photography
career seeking to progress.
Once you have achieved a basic ability to take
good photographs the next aim is often to improve your performance. As an
amateur that may be mainly about producing better photographs. As a
professional, or amateur moving to professional work, the photographic
improvement may also be focused on achieving institute qualifications and may
need to be complimented by aspects of handling subjects, clients and the business of
photography. DTA's photography affiliate is
