Sometimes it can be quite intimidating when you hear photographers speak about how to capture great pictures using the latest equipment and advanced techniques. If you have just taken up photography as a hobby, don’t let yourself get stressed about the technicalities of photography. Photography is meant to be enjoyed, learn to enjoy it first, and then learn the technical stuff. Sylwia Majtczak is an avid photographer and has a collection of beautiful pictures.
Do not let your camera quality worry you. If you start worrying about whether your camera is professional enough to take good pictures, you will not enjoy your hobby. It is easy to get distracted about digital camera quality and lose the fun of taking pictures. The success of a photo depends more on what you choose to include in the frame and what you choose to exclude, and how you choose to arrange it in the frame.
Choose the Right Shooting Mode
The camera’s digital scene mode is perfect for snapshots, but if you are looking to take some creative photos, then you will need to move to semi-automatic shooting modes. If you want to control the depth of field you will need to use Aperture Priority. This is a semi-automatic mode and allows you to set the aperture which causes the camera to set a corresponding shutter speed for the correct exposure. There are several settings you can work with, take the time to explore the various settings and learn how to use them.
Manual or Automatic Setting
Do not feel pressurized to use the manual settings of the camera, as the automatic settings provide good results. For example, the Auto White Balance (AWB) setting on the camera is quite capable of doing a good job in most situations. So playing around with the settings could make you take more time and eventually not make any difference with the manual settings.
