Start Learning Photography With Selecting Right Camera

Selecting Right Camera

It’s Time to write again on camera work. This time I am writing on selecting right camera for new learners or beginners of photography. Choosing right camera for taking photos is essential when you are starting to learn photography.

This is basic step in learning photography but if your base is strong then your further studies will be easy. First suggestion is try to use basic level cameras when you are beginner in photography. Don’t go for higher end cameras at the start of taking photographs.

Think on simple logic, no one can use advance machine directly if he is not having experience on basic machine. Like that camera is also one machine. First you need to understand, what differences between basic level and advance level cameras are? Basic level camera is point shoot or advanced point shoot cameras which any beginner can handle with the help of its manual. Advanced camera includes DSLR cameras, these cameras come with more advance technology, so they are difficult to handle for new learners of taking photos.

I am not going in deep technology here but I will give you brief difference between these cameras. The main difference between advance point shoot camera and DSLR camera is lenses; DSLR camera has interchangeable lenses where as advance point shoot cameras have fixed lens. DSLR camera has external flash units. Key difference between these two cameras is what photographer sees when he frames the shot. With a digital SLR, the photographer can view the image directly through the lens, thanks to a series of prisms and mirrors that reflect the lens image back to the viewfinder. A point and shoot camera's viewfinder is offset from the lens, meaning the viewfinder image and the lens image don't exactly match.

Now you must have got fundamental difference between initial level camera and advance camera. Start with basic camera (advance point shoot camera) then with experience and your knowledge of capturing photos, move to advance one (digital SLR camera). So, now you have to choose which one is better for you. But never forget at start selecting right camera is crucial step.

Basic Concepts of Photography - Travel Photographer

basic concepts of photography 

Photography is a huge and diverse topic to write on. Photography is not just clicking pictures; a photographer should also know how to convey his message or his views to the viewers through his photographs. Photographs can be taken of anything but before that the photographer needs to understand the hidden truth, beauty or message about that thing.

In this blog I just want to write on basic concepts of photography. A photographer should have a creative vision. He might not find beauty everywhere but he should have a vision to make anything beautiful, which can be done only by a creative mind.

It is not necessary that a photographer will always capture amazing nature, beautiful people or incredible world in his camera. He might capture normal reality in his camera. For example sometimes picture of an aged, wrinkled face might talk more than an attractive and beautiful young face.

Every picture has a primary and a secondary part. Things which are well focused and are at the center of that picture are primary parts and things which are behind or a little out of focus are secondary part of photograph. A complete picture always conveys some message.

A picture has its own dimensions, values, importance and message. If you can understand the message of a picture, you can understand views and art of the photographer.

Every photographer writes description about his captured images. Whenever you are viewing his piece of creativity, don’t just see the pictures, read the description as well so that you can easily understand his photographs.
