how to get into photography

Recently, many people have asked me how to learn photography, technical and theoretical things are very easy to talk about, because 1+1=2 can use fingers It can be verified by the head, and anyone who does it will get the same result. For anyone, it will not change. "The aperture is reduced, the depth of field will become larger, and the shutter speed will be faster. The fact that images can be frozen". However, in terms of how to learn photography, it is very important for a beginner. Because this is a matter of concept, the concept will not agree with everyone. The author really hopes to let beginners know about my views and ideas so that everyone will not lose their way and fall into the vortex of mistakes when they step into the door of photography.

How do I start learning photography? The first is to become interested in photography. And interest is the most important motivation. The stronger the interest, the stronger your motivation. Similarly, the greater your harvest in photography. Of course, most of the readers come to the photography network because they are interested in photography, so for this, I want to say to everyone: stick to your interest, you will gain more.

come again, someone will ask:

Do I want to buy a camera?

What kind of camera do I want to buy?

Regarding this question, the author once said in the forum, you You don’t have to buy a camera first, you can start by liking [watching], exquisite , meticulously printed picture albums, or all kinds of people and things on the road. Because you are interested in these images, you want to capture them with the camera. Is that correct?

The second step of learning photography 

So recognize the fact that the camera is just a "tool" for a photographer. Of course, for many people, the camera may be a kind of collectible, and there are also many people who are more interested in the equipment itself than photography, so! First buy a basic function (this point, most of the current cameras are compatible (This condition) of the camera, and then temporarily focus on the equipment, of course, I mean if you really want to gain something in photography, it is absolutely necessary to be familiar with your tools, and learn the operation step by step. . Take a moment to find inspiration in the streets, gardens, and fields. The most common things are often the most authentic. We often say, "Sweat more in peacetime, and bleed less in war." (Don’t ask what the camera can do for you, you have to ask yourself what you can do for the camera) That is, after familiarizing with your tools, you won’t panic when you encounter them when you want to use them, and you won’t even be able to reproduce them. The important event photography was messed up.

The quality of equipment is relative, not absolute. The choice of equipment is also very important. For a rookie, we only need to choose a DC that we like and is affordable. You can refer to some shopping guide articles and look at some recent price-reduction models and purchase instructions. I believe I can find my favorite DC!

The third step of learning photography, communication

After getting familiar with the basic operations, of course, I just look for opportunities to take more shots, and you can study and discuss the shots with your friends. Don’t feel embarrassed, especially at the beginning, you may not know where the problem lies in the photo? Is the focal length incorrect or the shutter speed is too slow? The composition can be enhanced? Can the light angle be better? The next time you encounter the same environment, can you shoot better than this time? Look for different shooting titles, look for different shooting locations, before you have a certain Before reaching the level, the author recommends that you try in many ways. Having friends go out to take pictures, come back to study together, exchange opinions and experience, all make photography more interesting.
