Digital Photography Hints for The Beginner

Published by at 5:20 am under General

More and more people are buying digital cameras these days, and more often than not, they are buying DSLR cameras. However, gaining a good quality camera does not ensure that you will get good quality pictures. So, now you have your camera, how do you get the good quality shots that you need?

First things first, as soon as you get your camera, read the manual. I am not trying to insult your intelligence by stating the obvious, but many people, including myself, skim when they read manuals. This is one case when you actually should read the whole manual. It is the only way you may get a basic understanding of all of your functions, and how to access them. I suggest using a highlighter to highlight all of the functions you think you will use most. That way it will be much easier to refer back when you are stuck. Every time, the Brisbane portrait photographer I worked with had me use a different camera, she would give me the manual to read before going out to a wedding.

Another very important thing to do is to really understand what F-stop, ISO and shutter speed are referring to. The F-stop refers to how large the opening of your shutter can get, and that controls how much light can get in and your depth of field. ISO refers to how sensitive the camera is to light. This would be the equivalent to film speed with a film camera. At last, the shutter speed determines how fast the shutter opens to let light in and capture the picture.

Another very important thing to remember is to take your camera everywhere. You never know when a photo opportunity will present itself, and you want to be prepared. You should take many pictures as well. That is the beauty of Brisbane portrait photography you can just erase what you do not like. I suggest that you invest in a good memory card, so that you can snap away and not have to worry.If you wanna to find something about Brisbane wedding photography ,click on the links in this article.
