It All Started as a Hobby

It starts in many different ways. Some people started out using simple cameras, and later on found joy in capturing moments in still photos. Some are simply attracted to photography from the very beginning. While there are also others who got interested because they found out that they have a natural talent for taking pics. 

For most casual snappers who finally decided that they want to take photography to the next level, the most common challenge is where to start. Newly decided photographers are unaware of the basics and fundamentals of photography. 

You have to feel free when you are snapping and not mind everyone else. It is important to enjoy what you are doing. Stop getting conscious. Right now, it’s important that you get a feel first of everything. 

After getting to know raw photography and spending time with your camera, it’s time to learn the fundamentals. Ideally, taking classes is the game changer. Some people though do not have the time; some cannot afford the fees, while others want to learn on their own. For other options on learning, there will always be classes on line, books to read, magazines to consult and forums to join online. 

Learning never stops. As you develop your skills and a trick or two as the days progress, it is important to keep track of your progress. It is important for you to share your work. Ask them to criticize your work. It’s important that you learn to critique your own work. 

Once you have learned the basics, know the importance of reading, and have joined a club to help you improve your work, it’s probably time to pick a new camera. It’s also possible the other way around, picking a camera first before starting the hobby. The leading brands in the DSLR market are Canon and Nikon.
