Don’t get discouraged not all shots are excellent ones
Photography is a learning experience, over time you’ll develop an understanding for what works as well as what doesn’t. Few days you’ll go out clicking pictures and come back with lots of great shots, other days you’ll come back with average shots, however don’t let that discourage you. As, if you take hundred shots and just one of them turns out to be a ‘keeper’ then also, it was still worth the outing for that one photograph.
Understand how your camera ‘sees’ light
You certainly need to know how light gets into your camera and how that has an effect on your photography. Important concepts you’ll need to understand are:
ISO as well as Grain
Rule of Thirds
Change your lens kit
The kit lenses are not the best lenses and generally compromise on both size as well as optical quality, so change them soon for clicking good pictures.
Purchase a tripod as well as a cable release
One difficulty of clicking with the camera in your hand is that you’re restricted with the shutter speed you can choose, if you select a slow shutter speed there’s a good possibility that you’ll get hazy pictures because of unstable hands. In low-light conditions, you can increase the ISO nevertheless that introduces grain; a sweet, simple and straight-forward way out is to purchase a tripod to keep your camera stable.
Cable releases for DSLRs are not similar as on old film cameras. These cable releases let you click a photo without even touching the camera which is essential if you’re on a rough ground.
Shoot in RAW
Your DSLR Photography will probably have quite a few choices of how to record your photographs, shooting in JPEG (perhaps with different quality levels), shooting in RAW and most likely the choice to do both (JPEG+RAW). So, what is RAW? Your camera has a digital sensor that arrests light and records certain info about that light (color & intensity), if you have your camera set to JPEG mode it changes this plain info into a compressed JPG file and castoffs the detailed information. RAW files in contrast have all of that complete information and let you do a much profounder level of processing after you’ve moved your photographs to your laptop.
