A Beginner in Photography

    I would love to venture with photography so I purchased a DSLR. I am really confused with its features. The auto mode was okay for me but I guess later on, I have to uncover the manual mode to be able to get perfect shots. As a starter, I guess there are so many things I shall learn with DSLR & photography. Any tips for beginners in photography?

    We have a YouTube channel full of useful tutorials. For example, watch this video if you're wondering how to set-up flash triggers.

    @kaibril practice made prefect and it nearly has no cost to shoot more on digital camera. Just shoot more and watching how-to video from youtube to learn. that's my 2c

    Hi, I remember getting my first DSLR many years ago now. And, yes! it all seemed very confusing at the time. Most DSLR's today shoot very nicely on AUTO mode but in order to get more out of your photography, you will need to start playing with the manual settings such as depth of field, shutter speed and deciding on the best lenses for your projects. I would start by deciding what type of photography do you want to do? Product photography, sports, portraits, nature/wildlife? and then go from there. There is a lot of good free information out there. Good luck and happy shooting.

    There's a lot of youtube channels that's dedicated to budding photographers, so you could check those out. And if you want to learn more about your camera, try going to creativelive.com. If you have a specific camera, John Greengo probably have a class on how to use that specific camera. Just google Fast Start Class with John Greengo. It also helps to decide what photography niche you want to get into so that you can start looking at those photography. I find that the more you look at quality photo, the more you eye for "art" improve.

    The main thing is to love people.
    I had experience working with a photographer who photographed people ugly.
    I think the reason is that the photographer does not like people and does not see any beauty in them.

    Getting a camera without any knowledge is... well, putting the horse before the cart, perhaps. However, with digital photography, you have the benefit of having no cost in trying out different settings. Find a motive, set the camera up on a tripod, or just a stable surface (so it doesn't move), and go through every.single.one of the different settings - yes, all of them. Shooting one or more images with each one. Then load all of them into a computer, and go through them, and see what difference different settings make. That will at least give you a little understanding of what the different options do - and of course, you have the camera's manual as well, which describes different settings, so you have a name for them.
