Shutter Speeds

TIP! Don’t allow the overcast skies to sneak into your pictures. When photographing outdoors, remember that overcast skies can make your photos look muted.

Try different shutter speeds on the same scene to see which one gives the best results. With developed skills, you can stop the action, extend it in a creative montage, or bring special feature into focus. In general, fast shutter speed work best for action shots, whereas slow shutter speeds are ideal for shooting still-lifes, landscapes and other static images.

TIP! Don’t get ahead of yourself and try to adjust all the camera settings without really knowing what you’re doing. Learn how to use your camera one feature at a time.

A dSLR is required for all serious photographers. These are digital single lens reflex type cameras. They are renowned for their ability to view the subject at the same time you snap the shot. Ideally you would get a full framed DSLR camera that gives you the largest image sensor with the highest detailed photographs.

TIP! A lot of people think a bright and sunny day is perfect picture-taking weather, but in reality, shooting directly into bright sunlight is a guaranteed way to wreck almost any photograph. Downsides to direct sunlight shots include glaring, awkward shadows, uneven highlights and human subjects squinting if they face the camera.

If you like to buy souvenirs when you travel, take photographs of them. Take a picture either of the store or the souvenir together with the original. These pictures can be placed in an album to create the story of your trip, with memories to treasure in future years.

TIP! When taking pictures of people, make sure that the background is slightly blurred. If the background is too crisp or clear, viewers may get distracted by it or be unsure of which part of your photograph to pay the most attention to.

There’s no hidden skill required to become a great photographer. Experiment with the settings on your camera to see how they affect the photographs. Digital cameras give you the ease of not having to develop or keep all your photographs. You can take lots and lots of pictures and view your results easily without the expense of purchasing or developing film.

TIP! Photography needs to be enjoyable. Pictures provide memories of people, places or things that you hope to remember and share with others.
