If you are looking for some camera tips and photography advice to improve your photography skills, you are at right place. Here are some tips from the experts who have been clicking pictures since many years. In the section below, we will cover some digital camera tips that you should know to begin with.
1. Reset cameras settings, when you mess-up
In the beginning, there will come many situations where you may feel that you messed-up with your camera settings. Or there may come a situation where you do not experiment with your camera settings so that you don't mess it up. Don't worry. In both the situations you can always reset your camera settings to get it back to what it was.
2. Format don't erase:
It is always advisable that you format the memory card in your camera. Formatting makes sure that your memory card is wiped clean and is ready for rewrite. Whereas, erasing data on the memory card doesn't rewrites any pertinent camera information. So always format your cards to minimize the risk of any data corruption.
3. Regular Firmware update:
Firmware refers to your in-camera software which is used for processing images. The firmware sets the whole range of parameters for controlling what features are available to you. Check your manufacturer’s website regularly to ensure your digital camera’s firmware is as up to date as possible.
4. Change camera Batteries:
The camera batteries are like lifeline of your camera. Make sure they are fully charged before you out and shoot. If you use your camera extensively, make sure you carry an additional pair of batteries just in case your first pair dies or is exhausted.
5. Check the image size:
You don't always need the maximum resolution for your pictures, do you? Sometimes a smaller image size might be all you need. Reducing the resolution doesn't only means more images, but also ensures a faster shooting rate, too.
