Canon 5d MarkII
Now that I’ve encouraged you to take more pictures, let’s talk about getting better at it.
Taking better photographs is as simple as two things: finding the information you need and practicing. So much information is readily available on the internet now. You can google “how to take a silhouette picture with your phone,” how to adjust the exposure for indoor shots,” or pretty much anything you can think of and the internet will provide an answer. It’s like MAGIC!
After you have the information, now you just need to practice.
But you CAN do it. Anyone can take better pictures and you don’t even need a better camera. You can even improve your iPhone photos. When you have learned everything you can about the camera you have and it can no longer do what you want it to do, then it’s time for a new camera. Until then, practice with what you have.
Every single day.
Canon 5d MarkII and zoom lens and patience.
When I first began using my iPhone camera, even after mastering my Canon 4D and multiple lenses, there was a learning curve.
Tapping the screen to get the right exposure and focus, turning off the flash (quick tip: TURN OFF THE FLASH), learning how to frame my subject without the aid of a fancy lens took me a while. I’m still learning, but it’s so much fun.
The more you practice, the better prepared you’ll be at capturing the moments you don’t want to miss.
What do you want to learn about photography?
I have some practice lessons to share with you and some tips to offer starting Monday, but if there is anything specific you’ve been wanting to know, leave me a comment and I’ll be sure and fit it in.
