5 tips to start in photography

 

To learn the art of photography and to take great photos requires mastering simple principles. If you are just starting out and want your personal photos to be impressive, there is no need for photo training with these 5 tips: 

 

1- The right camera is the one that suits you and that you can take anywhere, not the last one out.

Immerse yourself in its settings and once they are mastered, have fun! It will always still be the time to choose a more advanced model. 

 

2- The right moment does not exist

Learning photography requires regular training. Rediscover your city or your loved ones through the eyes of a photographer with nature, architecture or family photographs. Dare the art photo, vary the shots, and do not wait for your holidays to practice.  

3- Take hold of your device

Take some liberties with the automatic mode of your camera. Focus on the collimators (area of the image on which the distance is set) to highlight a character or landscape. 

For a portrait, focus on the cheekbones. 

Despite the temptation, familiarize yourself with these settings and switch back on automatic mode in order to compare. 

 

4- Compose with the one-third rule

Each sight is divided by 3 horizontal and vertical lines whose intersections are the strengths. By placing your subject at the third of the viewfinder, rather than in the center, your image will be more dynamic. 


5- Become master of the light

What is ISO? They correspond to the sensor’s sensitivity to brightness.  

The higher the value, the more sensitive the device is to it. Under normal conditions, set your ISO on 100; elevate them in case of low light. Prefer a low value and then adjust the speed (exposure time of the shot) or the aperture (depth of field).  

The smaller the aperture, the greater the depth of field will be and the sight clear. A large aperture provides a shallow depth of field, isolating your subject in the foreground. Are you still following? 

Last tip: make some mistakes! Understand what did not work. Apply these principles and your shots will be significantly better. Have fun and think about the photo development by our online printing laboratory to print and frame your favorite photos.
