To begin with, let’s understand what is digital photography. Digital photography is the kind of a modern photography where an image is captured and stored on an electronic device than on film. Digital photography allows the editing and sharing of photographs or images over computers and internet. There are many photography workshops, photography classes and photography schools available today which can make any aspirant a professional.
Digital photography is the new age photography that has taken over the entire generation by storm and is much more popular and convenient than the film photography. So, if you are learning digital photography, these five rules are not to be forgotten-
Keep your camera steady- This is the main rule in photography be it digital or film. Holding your camera with steady hands is the first thing to keep in mind because a blurry image is the biggest point of discouragement for a beginner. To capture a sharp and vivid image, always use both your hands to hold the camera one around the body and other around the lenses.
Avoid flash indoors- Using flash when indoors can make an image look more bizarre and unnatural. It can also bring stuff into notice that you don’t want to highlight. Hence, when capturing images indoor, push the ISO up and select the aperture to bring more light to the sensor.
Select a quiet background- A quiet background helps in focusing on your main subject whereas a busy background blends it within itself. Hence, to avoid any distraction through the background and bringing only the main subject into notice, go for a simple background. Background with only colours is highly suggested because it can bring a precision which no other backgrounds can.
Create a natural frame- Click through natural objects like trees, doors, holes etc. at the corner, bottom or above to create a natural frame around your main subject of the image giving it a professional look. Also, it will set the main subject apart from the rest of the objects.
Add colouring- What’s better than adding up a little colour to your otherwise mundane and ordinary image? Choose blue and green colours for a touch of serenity and tranquility to your image whereas, the colour red and yellow can be used for establishing optimism and happiness.
Photography today is seen not only as the means of capturing moments or recording history, but a whole new approach to art and innovation. Digital photography happens to be one of the most sought after professions as it not only elevates the creativity within you but lets you be unique and do something which has more life.
Becoming a good photographer does not always require you to go for photography school or photography classes. All you need is to get hold of a camera, go to your best known place which can invoke the photographer in you and keep the above five rules on your mind when you click
