When you’re first starting to take pictures, don’t worry about spending too much money on your camera equipment. Master the basics of photography on your basic point-and-shoot, and then buy more expensive equipment once you feel like you’ve mastered what you’ve got. Photographer Abby Krim writes, “I love gear, but I feel bad when I hear photographers say they feel limited by their beginner gear when, in reality, they should probably just get out there and shoot more.” Find more tips from Improve Photography here.
No one likes snapping a picture only to discover that it’s blurry! Avoid those blurry photos by using this tip from Exposure Guide. Exposure Guide writes, “Camera shake or blur is something that can plague any photographer and here are some ways to avoid it. First, you need to learn how to hold your camera properly; use both hands, one around the body and one around the lens and hold the camera close to your body for support. Also, make sure you are using a shutter speed that matches the lens focal length. So if you’re using a 100mm lens, then your shutter speed should be no lower than 1/100th of a second. Use a tripod or monopod whenever possible. In lieu of this, use a tree or a wall to stabilize the camera.” Make sure your camera has enough support before you snap your next picture.
