Some useful photography tips:

  1. Understand aperture: The most fundamental element any photographer should understand is aperture. The aperture is the physical opening within your lens that allows light through to the sensor (or film in an older camera). The wider the aperture opening, the more light can pass through, and vice versa.
  2. Use a wide aperture for portraits
  3. Use a narrow aperture for landscapes
  4. Move closer to the object: Each time you spot a subject, snap a shot and then move in closer for a better shot. Having your subject almost fill the frame helps your viewer understand and appreciate your photo. Also, details are often more interesting than an overall view.
  5. Become faster at capturing moments: If it is at all possible that your subject may move, bolt, fly away, stop smiling, or just get tired of waiting for you to take the picture, shoot once right away.
  6. Develop your photo with care: Even if you don’t plan on selling your photo at the exhibition, make every effort to keep it balanced and beautiful. On one level or another, everyone responds better to a picture that has all elements in balance. Strive to lead the eye along an interesting path through the photo, with the use of strong lines or patterns. Keep the horizon level; Crop out extra elements that you are not interested in; Consciously place your subject where you think it most belongs rather than just accepting it wherever it happens to land in the photo; Play with perspective so that all lines show a pattern or lead the eye to your main subject.
  7. Be selective: Be particular about what you wish to and want to photograph. This will make the process better and easier as it is natural for a person to take a photo of something they have interest in rather than in something where their interest doesn’t lie.
  8. Focus on your object: Practice shooting with different apertures and monitor the results afterwards to learn how depth-of-field affects your photo. A smaller depth-of-field focuses all the attention upon your subject. Likewise, a greater depth-of-field will make everything from here to eternity appear in focus.
  9. Monitor and look at the light levels: Bright blazing light is good to accentuate the bold colors present on your object. Side light can add drama to the photo and indirect light will help make the object glow and look dainty.
  10. Keep a tab on the weather: Look outside and decide whether or not you are going to want to have the sky in your picture. If it’s overcast, simply keep the sky out of your pictures as much as possible. This is usually the best way to avoid both muted tones in your subject and washed-out skies in your background. You might also find black and white pictures of an overcast day more pleasing than color. When the day is beautiful, go ahead and make the most of it. If your camera allows for the use of filters, purchase a This will help you render deep blue skies against bright white clouds, richly contrasting colors, and other wonderful effects with a simple twist of the wrist.
