- Think about the shot: Good photography isn’t about taking out your camera and clicking pictures randomly. You have to observe the subject first, which you are going to take pictures of. Visualize what you want to capture and then capture the image. This will give you an idea as to what lens to use, how much will be the shutter speed and what will be the focal length.
- Get the composition spot on: For achieving a truly stunning photograph, the composition should be perfect. You might have a great DSLR, but that’s not enough. In order to compose a photo, you have to decide the place from where you want to take the picture, the direction that you want to point your lens at and when to fire the shutter.
- Check your camera setting: Whether you are using a high-end DSLR or just a basic camera, you need to check its setting before shooting anything. Every landscape or object is different, and you have to set your camera accordingly. It’s best to manually set your camera rather than depend on presets.
- Set the Aperture: Aperture undoubtedly is one of the most important elements of photography. Whether you want the focus simply on the object or include the background as well will depend on what value of aperture you set on your camera.
- Use shutter speed: Shutter controls how much longer the lens is exposed to the light. If the object is in motion, setting the shutter speed appropriately is imperative.
- Get the white balance: With a change in climatic temperature, the light also changes. Precisely for this reason, you have to manage the white balance of your camera whether it’s sunny, cloudy or at night.
