You have made the decision to develop your creative and technical skills as a photographer. You picked the perfect time! The following paragraphs, plus some practice, will turn you into an amazing shutterbug.
Spend some time playing with the features on you camera, especially the manual balance white. Shooting indoors can give your pictures a yellowish tint due to the light bulbs. It’s rather difficult to fine tune artificial lighting, but luckily, the white balance feature on your camera is here to save the day. Implementing this feature will create a look of professionalism in the images you produce.
Get close to the subject of your photograph. Your picture will not be very interesting if your main subject cannot be seen clearly. By getting close, you afford your viewers a clear, detailed view of your subject.
Most digital cameras have built-in flash components that automatically pop up when the light is dim. Built in flashes are great for your average photographs, but for a more professional look, you may want to consider an external flash. Check to make sure your camera has a “hot shoe” on top that will accommodate an external flash, then go to a professional camera store to ensure that you are getting one that automatically syncs with your camera.
Before you take a photo, do not move and hold your breath. A slight movement is capable of completely ruining a shot. A fast shutter speed, a higher ISO setting and opening up the aperture to allow in more light are all effective at helping to minimize blur in handheld shots.
