Three Photography Tricks and Techniques for Beginners

These tips and techniques are photography for beginners. Not that experienced photographers do not use these techniques, it is just that they are fairly easy to use for beginners.

Tips for shooting with natural light

Usually you get some of your best shots on an overcast day. When the sun shines, the subject can be illuminated or have shadows that stand in the way.

One of the nice things about digital cameras is that you can see the results immediately. The impression is not exactly the same, but you should be able to see the shadows and backlight problems.

If you take a photo on a sunny day, try to position the subject so that the sun is behind us, not behind the subject. If you shoot a person to find a shady spot, so that he or she does not squint.

Using color

Colored backgrounds can add or adversely affect the photo. Another good thing about digital photography is that you can edit your photos before printing.

There are many photo editing tools available online. Some of them are free. However, to reduce the need for editing, you can think about the colors of the background and the color of your subject.

For example, the clothes that a person wears should not be the same as what is in the background. This causes visual confusion if nothing else. A nice contrasting background will make the subject stand out.

ISO settings

When using a 35 mm film, the film was characterized by a number indicating the sensitivity of the film was to light. Lower numbered movies were good days for photos and other situations that do.

In digital photography, ISO measures the sensitivity of the image sensor. If you set the number lower, the camera will be less sensitive to light and the photo will look less grainy. Low numbers are good for sunny days.

In low light, high ISO sets. You need less light, but the images will be grainy, almost as if it was developed. Sometimes, you might like the effect.

Do not be afraid to play with the camera settings. Remember you can always delete it if you do not like how it looks.

You can use the three tips and techniques described above to have more fun with your photography camera. After taking enough pictures, you'll probably find tips of your choice.
