Thursday, April 26, 2012

People have different hobbies and sometimes they even develop a hobby into a profession. These days photography is one hobby which people are developing on a large scale. The two most important things in photography are the camera and the concept.

For the beginners it is important to know the functions of the camera properly. Once you know all the functions of a camera, you can start using them to create your own concept. If you are interested in photography and want to take it as a profession, you should be able to come up with ideas and implement them properly to take amazing photographs. Some of the basic tips which could help you to learn photography are mentioned below-

The first thing that you should know as a beginner is how to use the viewfinder. Hold up the viewfinder and move it till you find a perfect scene to click. This will help you click better pictures.

You should know when to click. You should be able to aim and shoot properly to take good pictures. Make sure that you don't shake your hand much while clicking a picture. To avoid shaking you can hold your camera more close to you or can keep the camera on a still surface for less blurring.

The basic function of a camera is to measure the correct light amount and send it to the digital port or film. Then it saves the image so that it can be printed. The most important part of a photograph is the subject. It is important for a beginner to choose a subject carefully as the whole picture will be focused on the object. A subject can be anything like a person, a dog or a flower.

A film darkens when it is exposed to light. A case is there in each and every camera which protects the film from the light. The image is saved on the film in an upside down position.

After processing of the film is done, it is called a negative. You can see the reversed colors on a negative. The negative is then lighted on a photographic paper and the color is reversed again which means the actual colors of the scene is printed on the photographic paper.

These are some basics of the camera and photography which you should keep in mind. Light and shade plays an important part in photography and you will develop the knowledge about them slowly.
