Step #1: Learn your camera first
When you are a novice photographer and really want to have a journey towards professional photography, you need to learn your camera first. One of my good friend got a new camera six months back and was cribbing that his photos will still be not well exposed. I Then asked him, “do you understand the camera meter functionality” and he says “what’s the f*** is the fact that?”. Learning each of the camera setting is the first task towards a great photography.
Just check Nikon D3300 manual here. You will find similar manuals for all the camera models. Learn them rather well.
Step #2: Learn the composition rules
Just first of all, there are numerous simple composition rules which you may master and also you would actually be surprised to find out the results. Believe me!
Few basic rules:
1.Rule of third:
The rule says; for better composition, frame your shot in a manner that your main subject needs to be in 2/3rd from the photo. If you are getting a portrait photo, keep the model’s eyes at the cross sectional lines.
2.Rule of Leading lines:
Your photo should lead your viewers for some subject or where you wish take them their eyes to. This gives an incredibly positive effect in their mind. Your bairn is more likely to love such photos and also you would acquire more thumps up on social media. ?
3.Rule of Symmetry
Everyone loves symmetry, don’t we?. “Madam, I’m Adam”. Be it a sentence like this or perhaps the photo below. Symmetries are highly eye-catching photographic compositions when we are naturally in the middle of such patterns, the science says.
Search for a symmetrical pattern and capture it perfectly. It might definitely double your chances to get additional views for your picture.
