10 Tips to develop your photography skills

Last Updated :

Photography is skill and a hobby that you develop over the time. You can't expect someone to take perfect pictures when he holds camera for the first time. It needs time and efforts. Learn the basics first and then start shooting. Learn about photography jargon used is day to day world. And keep practicing. Remember, Practice makes a man perfect.

To know more of these tips, please read on and develop your photography skills.

1. Don't get discouraged if you are not able to improve from day one. Photography is a skill which is developed over time.

2. Don't stop shooting. Keep practicing as and when you get time. It is better to make a practicing schedule at different times of the day. No matter what the condition is, you should be out there taking pictures.

3. Don't give excuses. If for some reason you were unable to capture a better photo, don't give excuses as to why you couldn't. Make sure next time you click better.

4. Get someone to judge your photos. If possible get a photographer to examine your photos and give feedback. Whatever the feedback is, it is positive for you in every way.

5. If you have a camera, go through its manual and play around with its settings.

6. Don't feel sad if you don't have the latest camera or the gear. Its a myth that an expensive and latest camera can help you take better pictures. No doubt, they are packed with new and latest features and settings, but that doesn't mean that your camera is outdated and will not take better pictures.

7. Buy a book on photography and read it thoroughly. Learn from the examples given in there and don't forget to practice them.

8. Stop looking for subjects to photograph. You should be able to find a subject in everything you see. Apply your creative mind and see the unusual things in usual settings.

9. Learn some composition rules if you haven't any. These composition rules will always help you taking better pictures.

10. Learn to work with light. Light is one of the magical thing that you can work around. Experiment how a subject looks when captured from different angles under the same circumstances. See how light affects it in the photograph. Or see how your camera reacts to light when captured from different directions.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
