So are you a photography freak? Do you really know how to capture some great shots or it is just a hobby of yours? Well, whatever it is, you have to follow few tips to get into the nook of photography.
I am a professional photographer and wherever I go, people come up with few questions about the photography. I feel good answering but at times it becomes a bit awkward considering the queries of every single person. So I thought why not to write few tips of successful photography and here I am! You will feel connected to the topic as it is my journey starting from a beginner to a pro photographer.
I have been through tough roads to reach this level so just want to make it easy for you people. Here go down the tips:
Passion is most important to get successful in every field. If passion is not there, you cannot actually get the 100% out of your profession be it any. So start photography being passionate about it. Do you like searching for the locations to shoot that perfect click? Are you always on a hunt to experiment with the photos? If yes, then you really are passionate and if this is not you, then I would suggest being like that first or leave this path. There must not be second thought in your mind while reading this step or else you cannot be a good photographer.
Important photography tools and equipment are a must! You just cannot rent them to be a pro photographer. So don’t waste your time if you don’t even have the necessary equipment like camera etc. Also, if it is a start-up then you do not need to buy brand new equipment, rather buy used ones from online reselling sites like OLX or Craigslist. Check the equipment properly by fixing a meeting with the seller to avoid getting trapped in a fraud.
Choose good lens over a nice camera body. Don’t get lured with the camera looks rather be more focused on investing in a good type of lens. After all, the lens is going to capture you great shots and not the camera body. When I started, I bought a lens worth $1250 and it is working great till date. No denying to the fact that camera body is tempting but you cannot be a stupid spender in this case. Save your money on buying ok types camera body and quality lens. It will be a smart move and the lens will serve you much more years than expected.
Potential audience is important to be known. If you are taking pictures using fake backgrounds, then move on guys. It’s high time you should focus on adding a fresh and original element in the pictures as people no longer like fake pictures. Show them what they like to see or else you will be out of the industry soon!
Working with other skilled photographers does wonders for your knowledge. You can always get assistance from the pro photographers and learn their mind. Just keep your attitude aside and try learning new things from them. You never know when you will pick up something good that will actually benefit you. It is interesting to learn the approach they use while taking pictures and the techniques too. Everyone has a different shooting style so working with two or more people will definitely help you in learning artistic and creative photography approaches.
Camera shoot is important to click the best pictures. You should imagine holding a gun while shooting pictures as it will give you some of the perfect shots. While my learning session, I came across this technique somewhere on the internet and trust me, it is beneficial. It may seem a bit funny at first but it works!! Be confident and click flawless pictures.
To sum it up, I would suggest you being confident while clicking pictures because lack of confidence reflects in the final results thus transforming the good look of the image to a bad one. So while clicking shots, always tell the person to pose according to you and never sound as if you yourself aren’t sure about what you are talking. Follow these tips and I bet you will be a successful photographer in no time. Stay tuned for more tips and tricks!!
