11 things a beginner photographer should take care about.

These photography tips you should know about, if you are a beginner photographer.

Object Centric Click.

First of all, figure out that where is the object you want to capture and then click it in the best possible way that it will look nice. Don’t go haphazardly.

Solution: Use Single Point Focusing method to capture a focused object.

Know the Scene.

Get to know whether you want to take a landscape or a portrait photo. Because horizontal objects don’t go fine with a vertical click.

Photography tips

Know what to focus.

Once in a while it might have happened to every person with a DSLR that they tried to capture one object and ended up with focusing on the other one.

Basically you need to be clear about SPF (Single point focusing) or MPF (Multi points focusing) methods.

If you want to focus on a single object or a small region then you should use SPF method else you can use MPF method.

Use The Right Tools.

It’s not just the camera that clicks a perfect photo, you need to use proper tools sometimes along with the camera.

Use wide angle lens for the Objects that are nearer to you(e.g. 18-55mm)

Use tripod when you want to click a star trail or any slow shutter speed photos.

Choose the Right Mode.

Get to know about each modes that are given in your DSLR. (AV, P, TV, landscape etc.)

Use each mode by yourself.

Figure out that which mode is used in which situations.

G.: When you don’t know about the Scene or which mode should be used, you can use Programming (P) mode. It will automatically set the ISO and Aperture values as per the scenes.

Photography tips

Lights may lead you.

Get used to deal with the lights.

Click the photo when the light is getting applied on the object if you don’t want to darken the capture. Vice versa when you want to click a silhouette. Learn how to photograph fireworks.

 

1/3rd rule of frame.

It’s a rule to capture a photo in which the object you want to click should be portrayed in the third part of the frame. These are the common composition mistakes you should know.

 

Shutter speed and F-stop/Aperture (manual mode).

Shutter speed is indirectly proportional to the Aperture value.

If you are increasing the shutter speed then you will have to decrease the Aperture value.

g.: if you open up 3 stops like from f/16 to f/5.6 then you will have to increase the shutter speed t 3 stops like from 1/15 to 1/125.

Photography tips

ISO Sensitivity.

ISO is the level of sensitivity of your camera to available light.

When there is plenty of light, you should always use the lowest ISO, to retain the most detail and to have the highest image quality.

You should increase the ISO when there is not enough light for the camera to be able to quickly capture an image.

Try to avoid using Auto Mode.

Using an auto mode will make you feel that you’re capturing all the photos well. But once you will get out of using auto mode, you will get to know that there are plenty of things that you can do with your camera.

Photography tips

“Don’t be a wannabe ”

Well, don’t capture a selfie in the mirror holding your camera, that won’t define you as a photographer.

Photographers don’t click a photograph, They make one…

Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity is not a new phenomenon now days. There are plenty of DSLRs in market that comes with this functionality. The question is, Are they really useful and up to the mark? Battery draining, short distance range, dedicated network issues. Nope, they are not helping.

The new Pulse control plugs into USB port of your DSLR and gives full control over the camera. A dedicated iOS and android application makes the task way easy.

pulse

The connector looks pretty slick with flat rectangle and rounded corner design. The blue strip around the device makes it more attractive. The device uses Bluetooth LE technology to connect to iOS and android devices which provided operation range of 100 feet.

Once plugged in, the device is much like a high end remote control that allows you to control ISO, shutter speed, aperture settings. Additionally device allows you to preview taken photos so that you can have a track of what is happening in front of camera. Pretty handy feature I say!!

In addition, Pulse allows you to start and stop video from app itself. Also it triggers camera at certain interval for time-laps shooting. Advanced time-lapse options include controls like exposure ramping to adjust ISO and shutter speed when capturing day-to-night transitions.

Pulse
