I love clicking the camera, capturing once in a lifetime memories and this is one of the main reasons I’ve started this blog. To share with you how to take breathtaking photos with just what you have without spending too much money on new cameras and lenses. When people see professional photographers with expensive equipment, they think that one has to have such items to produce excellent photos. On the contrary, you just need what you have and passion.
I’ll share with some of the tricks I use to come up with amazing photos. What more, I will even share some of this photos with you right here. So don’t move. Read all the way and enjoy.
The question I get often is “how do I take good photos with what I already have?”
Always have your camera with you.
This may look weird, but what’s the purpose of having a camera if you are always leaving it at home? I cannot tell how many picture moments I have missed simply because I left my camera at home. I have blamed myself so many times but I finally had to make peace with it. By having your camera with you always, you can be sure to capture those rare funny lifetime moments.
Consider taking some photography classes
If you are extremely passionate about photography, then it might be time you considered taking up some photography classes. Shop around for classes that you can afford and then register for them either online or offline. Still, you can attend workshops on photography and learn from the professionals.
Take as much pictures as you can
The more you take photos, the more you learn. It’s as easy as that. By capturing images quite often, you will be able to understand how to effectively make use of your camera in different lighting conditions, what works and what does not work. In addition, when your picture does not come out the way you expected, you will be able to carry out research on why it didn’t by reading magazines or books. Finally, you will learn from your mistakes and also acquire lots of knowledge on how to use your camera properly.
Use a tripod
If you do not have a tripod, you should try and get one as soon as you can. A tripod opens up chances for low light photography. You can try out different light exposure intensities and shoot wonderful images in the night. A tripod allows you to shoot sharp photos of subjects that do not move while at the same time blurring the moving objects thus creating dynamic photos.
Shoot candid photos
Posed photos always look posed. I have never looked good in a posed photo, so I gave up on taking posed photos all together. I find moving the subject to a real life environment works perfectly well.
Take photos of your subject when working or doing something they love. This puts the subject at ease and they are relaxed so you will end up capturing some great shots of them. I prefer taking children photos with this method.
Photography is fun and a great hobby. Still, you can sell some of those photos you take online like I do.
