10 Tips for Beginner Photographer
The photographer makes the photo. Camera is just a tool in his hands. Start with a simple technique. Learn the basics of photography itself as a process. For a good photo, you do not need an expensive camera.
2. Sharpness of a picture.
Sharpness of the frame is one of the main indicators of high-quality image. The main cause of blurry shots is movement (stirring) during a photo. The main thing is to try to fix the camera or think about a tripod.
3. The camera is always at hand.
Try to take the camera always with you. A good shot can be everywhere: on a walk, meeting friends, and even at work. Just do not try to do this purposefully.
4. Mentally allocate interesting everywhere.
Start noting possible objects and think about how to photograph them so that you get an interesting picture. You could do it continuously, on the way to work or school, and even in the shop.
5. Preliminary frame visualization.
When you take a camera in your hands, you should see the future frame in your mind. Train your photographic thinking. Try to look at familiar things differently, not as you do it every day.
6. Get to know your camera.
Learn the meaning of different parameters - try to use them, feel free to experiment with settings.
7. Get pleasure from the process.
For a novice photographer, this is a hobby, not a job. Hobbies should bring pleasure from the process of photography, from studying and reading materials on photography, from viewing other people's photos, from attempts to create something of their own.
8. Criticize yourself.
Analyze your images. Think about what and why did not work. Ask to criticize your photos of those who know more than you do.
9. Take it easy for failures.
Try to analyze your errors in order not repeating them next time. The main thing is not to throw away the camera and constantly train.
10. Learn from the others.
Study material gradually, do not overload yourself. Perhaps visit several master classes or webinars. In addition, there is nothing wrong with copying of other people's works at the stage of your training.
