Photography Tips for Beginners – Start shooting like a pro right away

Most people assume that great photographers take great pictures with very good, very expensive photography equipment. That may be true most of the time, but not always. Beautiful images can be created by almost anyone with a camera, expensive or not, with a little forethought. In fact, thinking before you snap could be the master key to creating this wall-hanging masterpiece.

Here are some things to keep in mind when taking photos:

1. Closer – Once you see the shot, get closer before you press the shutter button. Cut out the background distractions. In other words, if you’re looking at a sleeping puppy, for example, fill your viewfinder with the puppy. Cut out what is behind or next to it. Move in until the sleeping pup fills your view from side to side.

2. Be quick – This may take some practice, but learn to be quick in case your subject moves or flies away, or gets tired of waiting for you to pull the shutter. take the photo Don’t worry about taking too many shots. In the digital age, wasting film is a thing of the past. remember… see it… compose it… shoot it…

3. Composition Matters – A well-composed image is much easier on the eye, so take some time to balance your shot. Keep the horizon of the shot level. Crop the extra footage in the viewfinder. Move the subject around the frame. In other words, just because the vase is in the center doesn’t mean it has to be in your photo. Move it off center for a more interesting shot.

4. Be picky about the matter – To capture interesting and compelling shots, you need to find what really speaks to you. To do this, you have to shoot all kinds of subjects until you find out about yourself. Once you find your passion, your art will follow. Finding ways to document the different aspects of your passion will take a lifetime. You will never run out of sunsets or cars, people or landscapes if you are passionate about them. Re-fill your viewfinder with your passion and leave the rest out.

5. Focus on your topic – Pay attention to your topic. Learn to fade or blur the background. You want to move the subject forward so that it dominates the viewers’ attention of the image. Just as some artists paint the same subject over and over again, it will be necessary to photograph the same subject over and over again with different shutter speeds, through different apertures, or in different lights. The subject may look better centered in the frame, or it may look better on one side or the other. Play around until you are satisfied.

6. Playing around with the shutter speed – One of the greatest opportunities in photography, which is sometimes left out in the tips for starting photography, is experimenting with shutter speed. Shutter speed allows you to speed up or slow down time. Effective use of shutter speed controls the moment of the still image. With a slow shutter speed and a tripod, you can capture a time-lapse event. With a fast shutter, the event can be captured in a split second that the eye might miss. The important thing is to experiment and or play around. This way you will find out what can happen.

7. Pay attention to the light – Don’t look at the sun now, but look at how the light plays around your subject. Is it a cloudy day or is it blindingly bright? How do the shadows fall on your subject or are there any shadows at all? Does your motive shift? Can you see your theme; meaning is the sun ahead or behind? Harsh light can bring out bold colors, while indirect light can soften your focus. Paying attention to the light source is probably number one for success in sharing beginner photography tips.

8. Watch the weather – The sky can affect how your images come out. An overcast sky will dull your image tones and wash out your sky and background. Sometimes black and white photography works better on a cloudy day. When it’s sunny outside, the sky’s the limit. If your camera lets you shoot through filters, get a polarizing lens. This is the lens that highlights fluffy white clouds against the deep blue sky.

9. Keep Settings Simple – It is best to stick with simple camera settings at the beginning. Don’t just leave it on auto and shoot. This can sometimes be frustrating when trying to achieve a certain effect. Set your camera to semi-automatic to allow for some adjustments, and as you get better, put it into manual mode to give you total freedom with your settings. So start slow and grow as you learn.

10. Do it, be brave – Don’t worry about whether you have set the camera to the correct settings or not. Take the shot and keep going until you are happy with the picture. Don’t be fearful, shy, or paralyzed by indecisiveness. There is no such thing as politically incorrect photography.
