  • Picture Perfect Memories: Photography Tips

    You're going to get into photography, whether it's as an amateur wanting to improve their

    photos or as a budding professional. Your timing is quite excellent. Read this article for some

    tips on how to become a photographer.

    Take the time to read and understand the manual that comes with your camera. Manuals are

    often bulky and thick. It's all too easy to throw them out or put them in a drawer. However,

    the manual is an important source of information and should be taken advantage of. By

    taking the time to read the manual and familiarize yourself with your camera, you will

    eliminate frustration and take much better pictures.

    Pictures of people may be more than a simple face shot. The human body is made of many

    different areas that lend themselves beautifully to artful photography.

    Experiment with your flash until you have a good feel for its range. Otherwise, your pictures

    will be too dark to view. To get to know the range of your camera's flash, you should take the

    time to test it out so that you can take the best pictures when the time comes.

    It might seem like a beginner's tip, but even pros forget that sometimes less is more. When

    dealing with any photo, don't over-think things. Do not crowd a shot with unnecessary visual

    elements. When you keep your backdrop and props simple, your subject has an opportunity

    to shine.

    Position yourself the correct distance from your subject. This will help you fill the frame. This

    is especially effective when shooting flowers or other inanimate objects. If you cannot do this,

    try using your camera's zoom button.

    First and foremost photography should be enjoyable. Photos should be taken of things you

  • want to remember later on and show others, whether it be an event, a location or even just a

    space of time. Always have fun taking pictures, and remain enthusiastic to learn new skills.

    To capture great landscape shots, use a tripod for stability. Establishing a steady base is

    important when you are taking photos, particularly when you are photographing landscapes

    because you can then adjust settings without shaking your camera.

    Keep the settings on your camera simple. Do not attempt to take on too many customizable

    settings at once. Choose to master a new setting monthly, from shutter speed to aperture.

    This puts you mind on taking the picture quickly rather than messing with all the dials and

    screens on your camera.
