Digital Photography For Beginners

By Rina James

Telephoto zoom lens: for any one interested in wildlife photography a
telephoto lens should become your standard lens.

Photography is defined as "The art or process of producing images by the
action of light on surfaces sensitized by chemical processes." Seeing the
sun rise up out of the oceanfront may be absolutely astonishing to
someone who has never been to the beach. It's all relative.

The earlier model did not contain the film; instead, it had a small light-
shield box with lens and translucent screen on either side. The image that
traveled through the lens was stored on the screen. Known as 'camera
obscura,' it was no more than a sketching device for artists.

If you love taking pictures and the idea of a career in photography sounds
good to you, just how do you begin finding photography jobs?

Digital Photography For Beginners Planning to get your hands on a digital
camera but not sure if you can make the transition from your old camera
that uses film to one that utilizes a memory card? If you are afraid of
things that are complicated, then don't worry. Although digital cameras
may be advanced, that doesn't necessarily mean that they are not user
friendly. Here are some tips that can help you in taking pictures with a
digital camera.

Enhance the color tones of your picture

There are times when you think that your shots have a cold or clammy
aura. This is because digital cameras have default settings for white
balance at auto. This is ok for most shots but if you want to increase the
reds and the yellows of your shots, adjust the auto setting to cloudy. This
makes your pictures appear warmer as well as richer.

Macro Mode

Activating the close up mode on your camera, usually called the macro
mode, will make your shots have sharper details. This is very easy to use in
digital cameras unlike in the conventional ones. To use your camera's
macro mode, look for the icon that depicts the macro mode or "close up".
Normally, the icon is that of a flower. Go as close to the object as your
camera will allow. It is important to remember that you have a rather
shallow field depth, thus it is important to focus on the subject's part that
you consider to be the most significant. You will also want to check any
and all requirements to the contest and make sure you qualify. You will
then want to check for any fine print and be sure you agree with the

A very well done portrait will at least contain one element that reveals
what the subject's personality and attitude or any other traits or features
that is natural to the person.

Whatever your reasons, a photography contest can be a fun and
rewarding experience for you. To find out all you need to know about
entering a photography contest, read on.

With the tremendous technological advances in the art of photography, it
is no more just fun and frolic but has acquired the dimensions of a full-
fledged profession.

There are so many ways that photography crosses our lives each day.
There are a lot of opportunities for someone looking for photography

Invest on file storage

Having a memory card that is capable of storing a large amount of picture
files is important. This gives you the freedom to take more pictures. The
higher the resolution of your camera which normally ranges from 2 mega
pixels to up to 6 or more mega pixels, the higher the memory size of you
card should be. With an ample sized memory card, you don't have to pass
the opportunity to take a shot. No more worries of having a full memory
card whenever that perfect shot appears.

Always use high resolution Your digital camera has many resolution
settings. Always take pictures using the highest possible setting. Although
higher resolution means more memory used up, it isn't a problem if you
have already acquired a good sized memory card. You will never know
when the best shot you'll ever take in your whole life may pop up, why
take it in poor resolution? These tips will help you with your new digital
camera. Never hesitate to take as many pictures as you can! Remember
you have enough memory, why worry? If you love taking pictures and the
idea of a career in photography sounds good to you, just how do you
begin finding photography jobs?

It is no surprise that underwater photography is a favorite pastime for
scuba divers. The idea could have come from those few people that were
able to experience the joys and beauty of underwater life and a desire to
share that beauty with others.

You may be amateur but if you are entering a photography contest, you
are competing with the best of the best. You are going to need your
photos to be excellent if you expect to win.

Getting developed rolls of film back from a reunion or vacation is
heartbreaking if something went wrong (and even someone having their
eyes closed, if it is during a wedding portrait, is "something wrong"). More

Compare the look of the photos from each photographer with one
another. If you find two that seem to be of similar quality but with vastly
different prices, then the decision is easy. Obviously the less costly
photographer can do the same or similar work for less.
