Hi my name is David Molnar.
My photos have been featured in the New York Times, People Magazine, on American Idol (and also on 28 million Pepsi and Mountain Dew cans!)
While these days I charge $10,000 or more for photo shoots, believe me, I didn’t start out this way.
I began learning photography back in high school.
My teacher was a guy who taught us from a textbook - he didn’t live and breathe photography!
And it took him all semester to explain certain technical aspects of photography. Most of this stuff could have been taught in about 5 minutes with some decent examples and analogies!
The result of an instructor like this is that learning photography is more complicated than it needs to be.
This makes new photographers give up too soon. They leave their DSLRs in auto mode and hope for the best.
That’s a total shame.
Because shooting in auto doesn’t give you the artistic control you need to create the photos of your dreams.
