So You Want To Get Into Photography ? GREAT !!!!!!!
Welcome to the world of Photography, The Door to Creativity.
I know you would be super-exited to master this art. Why not?? This is why you are here today, very here in this post. I am so happy to have you all here and I would love to share all my work and experience of photography.
But before moving into the real-business of learning, I would like to share 10 important points which will help you build your foundation strong enough to encounter any future aspects of photography.
So without taking more time, Let’s START
1. Possess Right Attitude.
Patience and creativity is the ultimate foundation of good photography. Without patience you can’t achieve that perfect shot and without the creativity, you will never be able to make that perfect shot.
Gender, religion and cultures have little or no effect on the outcomes of photography.
2. Understand the art of Photography.
Before we move on, it is very important for anyone to understand the basic idea and concept of photography.
Photography is not just a subject, it is an art which has no boundaries. The camera is a device with which you capture the beauty of nature
which includes all what we see.
Photography lies in us, not the camera. What we see is what we try to capture .
Photographs capture moments and it is the photographer who gives worth to the image.
3. Enjoy the process of learning.
Well nevertheless to mention but learning photography is a step-by-step process and we have to enjoy the process.The best part about photography is never running out of things to learn.
Inspiration is all around you. Look at everything with the eyes of a photographer and you’ll see opportunities you never noticed before.
4. Type of photography.
There are various types of photography – portrait, fashion, wildlife, landscape….. and many more. As a beginner, one should not restrict him/her to follow any single type of photography.
Be open to all and click whatever you feel and see. This will surely help in enhancing photography skills.
5. Learn Basic Photography.
By this point, all was about preparing you mentally to start with. But this very point will actually build your foundation in the world of photography.
Pick any photographer, the reason for their creativity and clarity is built upon the Basics.

6. Don’t Buy expensive Equipment right away. – Buy a right camera with budget.
Money don’t buy skills, so if you think that buying a high end lens and camera will help you become pro. Then my friend you are wrong. So consider the budget and try out with beginner level lens and camera and start shooting.
The more photos you take, the more you’ll know about what kind of camera to get when it’s time to upgrade.
7. Feel the camera.
Ultimately the gadget is in your hand, try to feel and explore all the stuffs it has. Read the manual and then explore each and every function before using. Also try to see the work done by other photographers.
Mark out your preferences. Experiment camera settings etc. This will help you learn faster.
8. Take Photos regularly.
Try to photograph something every day. If you can’t do that, make sure you take time to practice regularly.
So you don’t forget what you’ve learned. Make a list of shots you’d like to get and keep your camera with you all the time.
Click almost 10 pics on average daily.
9. Don’t afraid to experiment.
If you’re using a digital camera, the cost of errors is free. Go crazy – you might end up with something you like.
You’ll certainly learn a lot in the process.
10. Practice, Practice and Practice.
Photography is best when done in a peaceful state of mind and always improves with practice.
Wish you all the best. Happy Clicking, Happy Learning 🙂
