With its ability to produce near-perfect images, a digital camera can be a great and flexible tool. However, it can take some time to understand a digital camera. Novice users are often limited to the stereotypical brand of photography that hobbyists have been using for decades. Unfortunately, this is a huge unfairness to which camera could be used better. To avoid judging such a sleek and versatile machine a heavy-duty life, a potential photographer should follow the ten photography tips listed below:
1. Use the camera as much as possible. Practice and practice and then training more is the key to improvement.
2. Never rely on PhotoShop or any similar image editing tool to digitally improve image quality or correct errors. This is the number one vow that anyone wanting to be a good photographer should make and follow. While these editing tools are great ways to make small changes and corrections, a good photographer looks to capture the image that reduces or even eliminates the need for such adjustments. The more the image changes, the less skill the photographer is in it.
3. The focus of the camera should be on the subject, not on the people or objects around the subject. This reduces the “noise level” in the image and improves image clarity and sharpness.
4. Learn how to monitor and respect the underexposure warning lights. These lights are especially useful for beginners, as they allow them to experiment with exposure settings until the flashing warning lights disappear. Once the photographer gains experience, he can begin to use his knowledge to adjust exposure levels.
