You have to remember that camera is the last piece in the process of photography. To take good pictures, you do not need an expensive camera. First, you need to learn taking photos with your smartphones and basic DSLR cameras. You can upgrade to the high end after learning the basics of photography.
Do not rely only on Technology
Technology does most of the work for you – but only you can compose.No camera can compose for you – the art is your own. And that is what you need to work on most – what goes into your frame. Learn to observe the world around you. You can compose images in your mind without your camera.
Always be a student
Never stop learning. The Internet is a great resource of knowledge. Understand what they say. You should not hesitate to talk to other photographers. Even a small idea or tip from them can help you a lot. You should not imitate the masters. Instead, you need to learn from them and make your own style.
Classroom learning alone does not help
No matter how many lessons you take, that is only a small percent of the job done. The rest depends on what do you. Without regular practice and hard work, it not possible to achieve your goal. The teacher can only teach you the vocabulary – you have to forms words and stories yourself.
No substitute for hard work and odd hours
Photography is not for the lazy. If you want to shoot the sunrise, you need to wake up before the sunrise. You should always be willing to learn new things and you should be ready to accept the surprises because you cannot pre-plan what you are going to shoot.
Prepare yourself for best results
If you are traveling, you need to find the best time of the year for shooting. You should always carry backup batteries, memory card, and even cameras if you are going to remote locations.
Keep your equipment safe
