We were recently asked if you need an expensive DSLR camera to learn about photography.
Of course not. The more control you have over your camera, the better of course, but photography is about seeing the opportunity for a great image and grabbing it.
Compact cameras can be very high quality and you do not need to spend a fortune on a new camera to become a better photographer.

Welcome to the site. Due to the new specification it is not possible to enter for the GCSE qualification as a private student. This site contains resources to support those who are studying at school or college.
Alfred Stieglitz was once asked, “How does a photographer learn?”
“By looking,” he replied.
This is our starting point, our mid-point and our endpoint. You don’t learn photography by buying more expensive cameras or longer lenses, but by taking your time to really see, to really look, before squeezing the shutter.
No amount of fancy equipment can replace the ability to recognise what will make an excellent photograph.
