Only Masterminds know, " Knowledge shared = Knowledge squared "

If you have a photographic reputation to uphold, you need to learn as much as you can! This article will show you some easy photography tips to help you improve your photography techniques.

1. Get Closer

To take good pictures, get closer to what you want to photograph. Many cameras allow you to zoom in on your object, but you will get a better quality photo if you actually get closer instead of relying on the zoom feature by moving closer to the subject. Besides, you need to take a good look at what you are taking a picture of. To get a better feel for it.

2. Turn the flash on

If you are taking pictures in the sun during the spring or summer, make sure to turn the flash on. Failing to put the flash on your camera can result in a bad glare, which can taint your photos. Once you turn the flash on, you can take pictures as you usually would.

Don’t just rely on straight on flash from your camera for your shots. That only guarantees a burst of frontal lighting. Get a little more creative and try to create soft lighting conditions. How do you do that with flash, you ask? You can do that by bouncing your flash off of a wall or ceiling.

3. Have a focal point

Make sure you have a focal point for your photograph. This should be the first thing that the viewer’s eye is drawn to. Whether it’s a flower, a person, or a bird, every shot you take should have a specific focal point. Don’t only think about what the focal point is, but figure out the best spot for it in the shot.
as in Portrait Photography the focal point is the Face and Eye.

4. Consider the sky

When you are taking landscape photos, consider the sky. If the sky is rather bland and boring, do not let it dominate the picture. If the sky is lit up with beautiful colors (especially during sunrise, sunset or a storm), it is okay to let the sky dominate the photo.

5. Get to know your camera and Lens

This next piece of advice for a beginner photographer is to learn as much as you can about the speeds your shutter has. The shutter speed settings you will find on your camera are: P,M,A & S. The ‘P’ button will take you to the program mode. This setting is fully automated and will set both the shutter speed and aperture for you. If you are not sure what you will shoot, use the “P” setting.

Understand and get to know your camera. Although this sounds simple, many people have never even read the instructions on how to operate their camera. Get to know and understand the various menus and functions of every button on it so that when you need to use a specific function, you know where to find it and that the camera can accomplish it.

6. Always be early

A good photography tip for a beginner and for that matter anyone is to always be early when you’re planning on shooting a sunset or a sunrise. This will give you ample time to compose the perfect shot. You don’t want to get there and be forced to compose a lousy shot because you’re short on time.

Even for Family Photoshoots or wedding Photoshoots be early as it always get late at the spot.

7. Take lots of shots. 

Take lots of shots. Using a digital camera allows you to take an infinite number of photos for free. The more shots you take, the better your chances are of capturing that perfect moment. If your shot didn’t come out as you wanted, try again with different settings. You won’t learn if you don’t try.

Use Burst Mode to capture many photos.

8. Be quick:

You have to be quick! Work on your reflexes so you can take faster pictures! It will take practice, but you need to get quick with your equipment. Don’t let a once in a lifetime shot pass you by because you were busy fumbling with cases and caps. Find portable camera storage that will provide easy access.

9. Learn how to look

A good photograph should capture only a part of something. You do not need to get a panoramic vision when you can find the right detail that says it all. You should learn how to look for something that will speak to people and convey the meaning you are looking for.

10. Accept constructive criticism

If you are not that good at taking pictures, it can be troublesome, though doing some research and practicing will help you get better. To do this, you have to be willing to research techniques and accept constructive criticism of your work when given.
