Points to Consider For Great Digital Shots

leave a comment »

If you are new to digital photography then you should first start off with a compact model before moving on to a more serious pro level camera. Once you are done with the basics of digital photography, it is time to buy a Digital Single Lens Reflex camera and get serious about your photography hobbies. DSLR can be expensive, but even if you buy a DSLR worth five thousand dollars or more, you might not be able to use the magnificent piece of technology to its full potential until and unless you learn a few things about it first.The very first thing to remember is to observe your subject well and then focus on the part that you want to highlight with your photograph. Zoom in to narrow your view which will allow you to focus on the desired point better. A good photo must have balance, but you can also experiment by creating balance through contrast and complement.

Always try to capture your photos from an angle, that is try to avoid shooting your subject in a straight line. If however, the subject is stationary in a straight line, you must move to the sides appropriately enough to get a desired angle on your shot. Along with angles, take note of the height as well. Try not to capture your subject from a far away height as that may result in the subject losing its focus. Lower vantage points are preferred if you have the subject to focus on, but higher vantage points will work well in case of landscape or other background snaps.Avoid using flash to shoot as images lose their natural color when capture under the flash. Human beings appear paler and everything attains unnatural colors and looks artificial. Natural lighting is the best for photography, but if not available, then make the best use of whatever light source you have. Master the settings of your Digital Single Lens Reflex camera ISO speed, shutter speed and aperture timing to attain great photos even in near dark situations. If you can understand these three settings well, then you will make the best use of light always.

What sets apart DSLR cameras is mainly the facility to be fitted with macro, telescopic and wide-angle lenses which make your camera so much more powerful. Be it the moon or the tiniest details on the ladybird back or wide and vast scenery, you will capture them all with equal ease. Even after capturing your photos with all the effort that you put in, you still can do so much! Use a filter or any good photo editor software to further modify your picture until you achieve that perfect look. You will realize that as you move on with your photography, be it profession or hobby, you are discovering new areas everyday and the experience will only help in further nurturing your innate skills.
