4 Photography Tips for Beginners
2016-06-22

With more and more DSLRs flying off the counter everyday, it’s quite evident that photography is an art that many people indulge in. From wedding photographers to hobbyists, you can catch shutterbugs clicking away at any given occasion. Your camera is the most important tool for your craft and we want to share a few tips to help you get the best results.

 

Use a cleaning cloth

Most beginners will fail to realize the need to do this because they just use their shirt or some other piece of fabric lying around to wipe their lenses. Sure, it’s a fast way to go about it but your shirt soaks in dirt and sweat all day. Can you guess where it’ll land up? Bingo, on your precious lens.

 

Get the right tripod

Tripods are very important if you’re thinking of going pro with your camera. With that said, don’t rush in and buy the cheapest tripod you get. Take the time to skim through the store before finding the one that’s right for you. Remember, no one size fits all so don’t be shy to test the tripod with your camera before making a decision.

 

Try the manual mode

The manual button may seem scary at first, but trust us, you’ll be better off without the auto settings. Just try your hand with it and play around till you figure it out. This process is easier than it sounds but you have to stick with it. Most amateur photographers take one shot in manual mode and go right back to auto but you have to understand it’s a trial and error method.

 

Bank on good memory

Memory cards preserve and store the beautiful moments you’ve captured on your camera. Although there are several brands in the market who provide low cost memory cards that have the same storage space, they lack stable data transfer rates and longevity. Save up a few extra bucks and go for a high end memory card since it will last you a lot longer than the cheaper alternatives.

 

Well, there you have it. Follow these simple instructions and you’ll be an ace photographer in no time.
