Things Every Photographer Must Know

Photography has turned out to be one of the best hobbies nowadays and people are being much interested in learning about the subject more and more. It is a passion for some, love for some other and a way of living for a few more.

Photography isn’t as easy as it seems. You need a lot of dedication and will power to bring a photograph to life. As they say, photographs talk about moments so you must make sure you are able to bring the moments into life.

If you are an aspiring photographer, then here are a few things you must know –

  • Know More About your camera – Your camera is the most important thing and this is the reason why you must know your camera well. Whether you are trying to control it or you are trying to do something different with your camera, you must know all the essential features of your camera. You must know about the lenses, and know what feature will do what kind of affects on your camera.
  • Understand the Exposure – Your subject has got nothing to do with the camera. It is all dependent on you, how you will be handling it. You must find out the meaning of a “good exposure”. But, that “good exposure” we are talking about actually resides in your mind. How? When you click a picture, you already have an image how it should look. So, if it comes out to be brighter than your imagination, it means it’s overexposed and if it turns out to be darker, than it is underexposed.
  • Learn the Magic of Light – Light is one of the most important things in a picture. And honestly, you must learn the magic of light. However, no one has been able to “master” the light philosophy but you must understand its facet and subtleties. Learn how to create light, learn how to work with it.

These are just a few things every photographer must learn. Well, you can thank us later!
