In today’s video a few thoughts on keeping your wildlife photography simple, details on how the 2012 Wild Eye Nature Photography Competition is judged and I ask –  what is the best way to learn online?


As always I look forward to hearing from you.


Until next time.

    Thanks for the morning dose 🙂 interesting topic about how you learn online. What works well for me is asking people to crit. my work. Some do and some don’t. One example is my Monkey i put it on my fan page and i ask Chris Martin to please give me his thoughts & he gave me them. Now just need to find the $$ and time to go back to the bush to try them out 🙂 And your updates, feeds, competition. daily blogs give me the inspiration and courage to go out and take photos and try different techniques.

    Great topic Gerry!

    Is there ever 1 best way to learn? Classical theory would suggest you either prefer visual stimulus, kinetic (doing) or aural. I’d assume & suggest that photographer’s who have ‘natural talent’ merely have a strong visual aspect to their learning type. 
    Visual – Behind the frame, online critique, looking at images.
    Doing – Get out and there and shoot, attend workshops
    Aural – Watch videos and attend workshops, maybe reading comments on internet counts? Talk to other photographers!

    Either way, the best way to learn is to do it all but only a few ways can be done online!
