As Henri Cartier-Bresson once said, “Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.” Fullerton College helped make me the photographer I am today. They taught me how take my first 10,000 photos, but more importantly they showed me how to improve from capture to the next. Photography is interesting because it’s an art that is both artistically driven and technology driven. You can’t expect to be great without knowing both sides.
At Fullerton College I came in with very little technical knowledge and a small amount of artistic perspective. I left the program knowing technical skills such as: Printing, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Wacom tablets, screen calibration, and all the ins and outs of my camera. On the other hand, artistically, the photography program taught me how see my shot before I took it. My professors helped me to understand how to create an idea and execute it. Lastly they taught me how to become my own photographer with my own style unique to anyone else. The road to becoming a photographer is one filled with criticism from others and mostly yourself, but real photographers take that criticism and use it to better their work. If you want to become a photographer or just someone who takes good photos the Fullerton College Photography Program is a good place to start your photography journey.
