1. Say Cheese! Photography Tips For All Skill Levels You have made the conscious decision to take your photography skills to the next level. That's great! The list below offers great tips for beginning photographers. Select what will appear in your photograph. A quality photograph should mimic a small frame that surrounds certain features of your subject. Don't try to show too much. In fact, sometimes it's better altogether if you take multiple photos of a subject instead of struggling to get that one illusive shot of perfection. This works especially well when you're trying to capture the essence of something. Choose only your best photography to highlight and display. Don't show all your photos, or even too many images of similar subjects. You photos will not be interesting and hold your viewers attention if you do not mix things up and photograph different subject matter. Keep what you show other people fresh and exciting by showing many different types of photos. Check out what other photographers are doing to get ideas to improve your own photography. If you look at their photographs, you will get more ideas at what you can do. Most importantly, photography should be fun. It should be an activity performed to allow you to remember a special place, time or event. If you are enjoying the process, it is much more likely that you will embrace it and master the skills necessary to excel in photography. You will have to play with ISO, aperture and shutter speed. These are the three features that drive the exposure of the photographs you take. You do not want to have an overexposed or underexposed photograph if you can avoid it, unless this is what you were originally looking for. Play around with these three settings to see how they work together and which combination will create the most interesting shot. Move in close to your subject. It is very upsetting when you believe you have the perfect shot only to find that you can't see the subject very well. Move closer to give your shots vivid clarity. Pre-focus your camera and move to where your subject isn't dead center in the frame. Centering a subject is extremely common, especially among amateurs, and tends to make for a very uninteresting photograph. By using this technique, you will find that your photo and the subject matter give off a more interesting appeal to the viewer. When you take photos in fluorescent lighting, change the white balance so it looks clearer. Different lighting needs to compensated for. If your fluorescent lights give off a blue tone, you may need to adjust for that to fix any unintended consequences. One of the best ways to capture perfect shots is to take many photographs of your subjects.
2. Keep this in mind when purchasing a memory card, so you can be sure to get one with a large storage capacity. The larger your memory card, the more pictures you can take without having to swap to another card. If you use a big memory card, you will be able to shoot using the RAW format. Using the RAW format will give you more flexibility when you are editing your photos. Photography might not be for everybody, but anyone can enjoy a photo. By getting involved in photography, you can create memories the world might have otherwise missed. Photography is a great hobby to involve yourself in. Sharing your images with the public at large can relieve stress and calm your world.Studio Republic Photography 4/32 Technology Dr Warana, QLD 4575 AUSTRALIA Tel: +61 7-5493 1931 http://www.studiorepublic.com.au/
