Clicking beautiful photographs is not just click click click. A lot of thought process, tweaking camera settings, knowledge and understanding goes into it. And of- course a lot of post process editing too. If you are new to all this, don't worry. The tips listed below will help you get familiar with some of the basic and important things.
These tips will help you improve your photography, understand camera settings and eventually help you to become a better photographer.
Tip #1: Spot a subject
When you begin clicking pictures, don't just click for the sake of clicking. Spot a subject and then start clicking. As you focus on the subject, move closer for a better shot. Make sure that your subject fills the frame. Remember, sometimes detailing is more important than subject.
Tip #2: Light
Light is the most important element in photography. Check what kind of light you are working with. See how they affect your subject. The basic rule is that 'sun should be behind the photographer.' But make sure its not blazing directly and brightly upon your subject.
Tip #3 : Be simple
As you are a beginner, try out simple set-ups that work best for you. Going with complex set- ups may not just work. Instead of keeping your camera on 'Auto' mode, experiment with other semi-programmed modes. This is how you learn photography. Master your basics first and then move on to complex settings.
Tip #4 : Watch the weather
This is one important condition to consider before you start clicking. If it is an overcast day, try to keep the sky out of your photos. If you cover them, it'll a dull color tone to your subject with washed-out skies in the background. However, if you still want to cover skies, then go for black and white mode. It is more pleasing than colored one. If the day is bright and beautiful go ahead and cover whatever you want.
Tip #5: Experiment
You should never underestimate your camera. once you have understood the basics, go ahead and explore User Manual that came along with your camera. Experiment shooting same subject with different settings to see which effect you like the most. And when you check these images on your computer, look at the EXIF data to check which settings you used.
