Today, in the era of digital photography we have a great exposure to DSLRs and accessories which makes it very easy to click great photos. With the access to internet, we can easily watch or read photography lessons to better our knowledge and skills.
Now imagine how limited the exposure to modern equipments, accessories and lights the photographers must have had, way back in the 1980’s. No digital cameras with LED display, no digital light meters, even the studio lights and light modifiers were not available that easily.
‘World of Photography’ was one of the sources to gain knowledge and experience how the professional photographers used to shoot way back in the 80’s. This half-hour television program was aired from 1985 to 1991 on The Travel Channel, A&E and ABC Television Owned & Operated Stations.
Though the photography fears and equipments have changed drastically in the past 25-30 years, but the basics and techniques are the same. More than 200 videos that were aired on ‘World of Photography’ have been uploaded on YouTube with the objective of sharing the content in order to spread the photography knowledge.
To get you started, sharing some videos featuring noted photographers Galen Rowell and Dean Collins.
You will be amazed to see the knowledge these videos hold. If you are looking to make your photography basics strong, head to the ‘World of Photography’ YouTube channel and invest your time watching these cool yet informative videos.
