Tips and Treats Week 12

October 07, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

If I could give advice to a new photographer I would say some of the following.

  • Learn about your camera. Read the manual. Play with the different settings. Look at the information on each photo that you love to see the settings (this will help you to know how to set up your camera for another shot).
  • Take lots of pictures, trying out different times of the day to see the difference in what the shots will look like. 
  • Try different angles of the same shot.
  • Try out different lenses standing at the same point and see the difference in the photos.
  • Learn your photo editing program. It's amazing what you can do in post processing.
  • Know that your photo editing program is your digital darkroom. (don't feel guilty about changing things up a bit)
  • Get someone to model for you for taking portrait shots.
  • Do a 'self portrait' project to learn about portrait photography, lighting, poses.

The list could really go on and on. Another way I'm learning more about photography is by watching YouTube videos. I love that 'hands on' type of learning. 

Check back for more tips and treats. :)
