These photography tips you should know about,

if you are a beginner photographer.

Object Centric Click.

First of all, figure out that where is the object you want to capture and then click it in the best possible way that it will look nice. Don’t go haphazardly.

Solution: Use Single Point Focusing method to capture a focused object.

Know the Scene.

Get to know whether you want to take a landscape or a portrait photo. Because horizontal objects don’t go fine with a vertical click.

Know what to focus.

Once in a while it might have happened to every person with a DSLR that they tried to capture one object and ended up with focusing on the other one.

Basically you need to be clear about SPF (Single point focusing) or MPF (Multi points focusing) methods.

If you want to focus on a single object or a small region then you should use SPF method else you can use MPF method.

Use The Right Tools.

It’s not just the camera that clicks a perfect photo, you need to use proper tools sometimes along with the camera.

Use wide angle lens for the Objects that are nearer to you(e.g. 18-55mm)

Use tripod when you want to click a star trail or any slow shutter speed photos.

Choose the Right Mode.

Get to know about each modes that are given in your DSLR. (AV, P, TV, landscape etc.)

Use each mode by yourself.

Figure out that which mode is used in which situations.

G.: When you don’t know about the Scene or which mode should be used, you can use Programming (P) mode. It will automatically set the ISO and Aperture values as per the scenes.

Lights may lead you.

Get used to deal with the lights.

Click the photo when the light is getting applied on the object if you don’t want to darken the capture. Vice versa when you want to click a silhouette.

1/3rd rule of frame.

It’s a rule to capture a photo in which the object you want to click should be portrayed in the third part of the frame.

Shutter speed and F-stop/Aperture (manual mode).

Shutter speed is indirectly proportional to the Aperture value.

If you are increasing the shutter speed then you will have to decrease the Aperture value.

g.: if you open up 3 stops like from f/16 to f/5.6 then you will have to increase the shutter speed t 3 stops like from 1/15 to 1/125.

ISO Sensitivity.

ISO is the level of sensitivity of your camera to available light.

When there is plenty of light, you should always use the lowest ISO, to retain the most detail and to have the highest image quality.

You should increase the ISO when there is not enough light for the camera to be able to quickly capture an image.

Try to avoid using Auto Mode.

Using an auto mode will make you feel that you’re capturing all the photos well. But once you will get out of using auto mode, you will get to know that there are plenty of things that you can do with your camera.

“Don’t be a wannabe ”

Well, don’t capture a selfie in the mirror holding your camera, that won’t define you as a photographer.

Photographers don’t click a photograph, They make one…
