PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS AND TRICKS:
TIPS TO KEEP YOU TAKING PICTURES AND LEARNING MORE

 

Keep your camera with you all the time.

Photo ops often come when you least expect it. If you can keep your equipment relatively simple – just a small camera bag and a tripod – you might be able to take advantage of some of those unexpected opportunities. Or, if your phone has a camera, use it to take “notes” on scenes you’d like to return to with your regular camera.

Make a list of shots you’d like to get.

For those times you can’t carry your camera around, keep a small notebook to jot down places you’d like to come back and photograph. Make sure to note any important details, like the lighting, so you can come back at the same time of day or when the weather’s right. 

Take photos regularly.

Try to photograph something every day. If you can’t do that, make sure you take time to practice regularly, so you don’t forget what you’ve learned. 

Don’t be afraid to experiment.

If you’re using a digital camera, the cost of errors is free. Go crazy – you might end up with something you like. You’ll certainly learn a lot in the process.

Don’t go crazy buying the most expensive equipment right away.

It’s possible to get very nice photos with an inexpensive point and shoot. If you take DEMYSTIFY ~ YOUR CAMERA PART I  I’ll show you the way.

    Thanks for the tip to take a photograph every day to keep up practice and avoid forgetting what you learned. I want to go on a photo tour this summer, but I really don’t have a lot of practice with taking photos other than the occasional selfie. I’ll be sure to start practicing with a real camera so that I can get some good photographs for when I go on the tour.

    I really like that you mentioned not buying the most expensive equipment right away. Professionals know how to use these pieces of equipment that cost more. It would help to keep this in mind as I look for a photographer.

    I like how you suggested to just keep a camera with you at all times. I am photographing a youth sports team for my first project. Thank you for the tips and tricks on taking pictures.
