Photography Lessons at Seomun Market in Daegu, South Korea

Living in South Korea it can be difficult to find certain things in English. One thing we had a lot of trouble with was finding photography lessons done in English.

I have had a Canon DSLR for awhile now, but I still don’t full understand how to properly use it. So after months of searching, I finally found someone to teach me how to use it.

A small group of us found a fellow English teacher who has a lot of experience in photography and he agreed to give us some lessons. We meet once a week and learn something new. So far we have had two meetings and it has gone incredibly well.

We are learning a lot about the basics right now because we are beginners but it has been great. There are so many things that a camera can do, and our cameras are just entry level DSLRs as well. This week we met to talk about some of the basic things such as focal length. Then we headed out to a local market to practice what we have learned.

I had no idea how wrong I was going about taking photos. I knew I didn’t know what I was doing, but I didn’t realize how far off I was.  Just learning how the different focal lengths can play with the photo was incredible. I’m very excited to be taking the lessons, and I can’t wait for next week.

This week we went to Seomun Market here in Daegu to practice taking some shots. It was a raining day so we stayed in the market, but we were able to get a lot of great shots. Here are just a few of mine.
