Photography Tips For Beginners – How to Improve Your Photography Skills

Photography tips for beginners – it’s easy to get lost in the vast amount of information out there. You can easily become overwhelmed by all the different theories, techniques, tips and tricks out there and can easily become confused as to which tips and tricks really work best for your photography. If you’re a beginner photographer then these handy tips and tricks will really come in handy.

My three favorite “tricks” for improving your photos are using a white-balance program, taking photos while moving around (which is called a macro) and getting creative with your photo editing skills. White balance is a setting on your camera that automatically adjusts the color temperature based on the availability of sunlight. This is great because it makes low light photos look very dark and dramatic, while shots of sunsets or fireworks at night look super pretty good. If you’re not familiar with white balance then just search online for “white balance” and you’ll find plenty of tutorials and free white balance software.

Another “trick” that I use to improve my photos is experimenting with different shutter speeds. I often shoot with a very fast shutter speed and then slow it down when the scene is far less busy. I find that I get more dynamic shots when I use a fast shutter speed and get some of the noise and guesswork out of my shots. Try shooting a scene with a lower contrast with your aperture setting high (faster aperture = faster shutter speed) and see the difference.
