How To Be Professional Photographer

There’s a few things to constantly keep coming up whenever I talk to someone new to photography. The questions asked always come back to settings and how to shoot the images that I do. Unfortunately, 90% of the time these people are asking the wrong questions.
When first starting out on your photographic journey, start at the very beginning. The following 7 tips might help you towards your goals.

1. Simple Equipment
Most beginners believe that the more expensive the equipment, the better. I would recommend that you start simple and explore the type of photography that you actually love taking. Often this will end up being something completely different to what you thought at the beginning. Learn what you like and then find out the type of equipment you will need to make it happen.

2. Unsteady Hands.
Tripods are cheap these days. It is definitely worth getting one as your satisfaction with the final result will increase immensely!

Couple this with either a remote release or when first starting out just using the timer that is built into your camera.

3. Be Ready
If possible, carry your camera everywhere. You never know when that award winning shot will present itself and you want to be ready!

4. Plan
Get into the habit of always viewing things from a camera point of view. Keep notes on any interesting areas and subjects that might make a great shot.

Take a notepad with you whenever you can. Write down thoughts, ideas and as much information as you can about certain spots so that you can come back armed and ready!

5. Enjoy Yourself
The more fun you are having, the more shots you’ll be taking. It’s really a simple matter of honing your skills and practicing!

6. Play
These days even the most basic of point and shoot camera’s have a zillion different settings for you to play with. Learn what they all are and how they behave and change the final output. You will amaze yourself. Don’t be scared. There’s plenty of resources out on the internet to propel you to much better imagery! Learn the basic rules first. Once you’re comfortable with these – break them!

7. Shoot, shoot and then Shoot some more!
Get into the habit of shooting photo’s each and every day, regardless. Practice makes perfect and sometimes even the most mundane of subjects can be spectacular if seen from a different perspective.

Above all, enjoy yourself. It’s when you’re happy and having fun that the magic happens!

While Balance Technique

Have you ever noticed how sometimes you’ve taken a shot and there’s a weird color coming out in it?

A yellow, blue, perhaps orange look to the photo?

We all have and when we first start out in our photographic journey it can be a bit of a struggle to understand why this is happening.

Enter ‘White Balance’!

Different light sources will add a different color cast to your images even though to the naked eye they appear ‘normal’. Fluorescent lighting is actually blue in color, tungsten bulbs add yellow.

The naked eye and the brain behind it are smart enough to discern these differences and therefore to us a white paper is a white paper… is a white paper!

The ‘brain’ in your camera is not quite that smart and won’t normalize the range of color temperatures that we can.

The White Balance settings in your camera are here to help as this can have a tremendous impact on the quality of the images that you take as you can take control of your camera and tell it to ‘warm up the image’ or ‘cool down the image’.

Look up the settings for your individual camera’s white balance mode. You can do this manually or in most cases these days, have preset white balance settings.

Below are some of the basic white balance settings that most cameras will have:

Auto- this is where the camera makes a best guess on a shot by shot basis. You’ll find it works in many situations but it’s worth venturing out of it for trickier lighting.

Tungsten-this setting will generally cool down the colors in your photos.

Fluorescent- this setting will generally warm up the colors in your photos.

Daylight/Sunny- tends to keep the white balance in a kind of ‘neutral’ state.

Cloudy- this setting generally warms things up a touch more than ‘daylight’ mode.

Flash- the flash of a camera can be quite a cool light so in Flash WB mode you’ll find it warms up your shots a touch.

Shade- will warm things up a touch.

Manually adjusting the White Balance

You can actually get pretty decent shots by using the above preset values. You can however, learn how to do this manually.

The basics behind adjusting things manually will remain the same even though the way you do it will vary from camera to camera.

In essence, you will set up a reference point for your camera (what white/grey actually is) and your camera will know that this is white.

You can then manually adjust the warmth factor up or down appropriately dependent on the conditions under which you are shooting!

As with everything else in photography this is one of the basics. Once you actually understand how to warm or cool an image, feel free to go nuts on the settings to get whatever effect you are actually after.

After all, just because an image is correctly exposed and framed, doesn’t make it a correct image!

All About Camera Kit

Understanding camera lenses will give you the ability to have greater flexibility and control over your creative imagery. When first starting out it can be daunting trying to understand which lens or lenses you should be purchasing. The kit lens that came with your camera will only go so far. Below I’ve listed some different types of lenses that you will come across and what their main purpose is. A small introduction to allow you to get the basic information on what that particular lens is actually created for.

Zoom Lens:

A zoom lens allows you to get closer to your subject without the need of actually moving closer to it. It allows you to achieve a variety of different compositions in the quickest time. The focal length is measured in mm. i.e.: 70-200 is equal to 70mm to 200mm. This focal point is the key to the way the lens focuses. It magnifies the image by changing the focal point.

Prime Lens:

Unlike the zoom lens, a prime lens has a fixed focal length which cannot be adjusted. Prime lenses are slightly quicker to focus with a much better level in picture quality as there are less moving parts within the lens itself.

Macro Lens:

Macro lenses allow you to capture extreme close ups. They create a unique image of tiny subjects that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

Wide Angle Lens:

This lens allows you to fit much more into an image than others, widening the amount of space that you can capture within the image.

This lens is great when you have limited ability to step backwards to get more into an image or when shooting land and seascapes.

Fish Eye Lens:

This is an oval shaped, 180 degree view of the world. Initially created to give the photographer the ability to capture whole skies and landscapes. A fun little lens that you can use creatively.

Telephoto Lens:

High magnification lens enabling you to take long range action photography for the likes of sports and wildlife. It allows you to be further from the action and still capture in close shots. A monopod is usually used to stop camera shake on the images.

Tripods:

These are pretty straight forward. They hold the camera steady for long periods of time. It also give you the ability to take yourself into the image!

Monopod:

The same basic functionality as the tripod with only one ‘leg’. Much more convenient to carry around than a tripod, easier to carry and transport. Some places won’t allow a tripod, like courtside at a sports match. They are often used in fashion and paparazzi images as well as they are easy to pick up and carry. Having only one leg means that you cannot simply let the camera sit on top of it and walk away, the main difference between the two.
