There are only a few ways to capture moments in time. Some people will tell you that to enjoy moments; you have to experience them while others might say that a picture can truly capture the emotions of a moment for all eternity. In this article, we’ll explore ways in which you can take your first steps into becoming a full-fledged photographer and capture countless moments of life.
So first things first, don’t let failure hamper future success. There is no guarantee that the minute you get your DSLR, you will become a great photographer. Remember that the camera is only as good as the person using it; people need to understand this because some of the greatest photographers of our time can take great photos with the most primitive cameras. Obviously understanding the many features of the DSLR can propel you to great heights but it isn’t going to make you a better photographer instantly. There will be a number of articles that tell you to improve each feature to get a better photo but deep-down you become overly dependent on the tool and lose sight on the important aspect, you as the photographer.
Once you’ve understood that the camera is only an extension of you and not the determinant of success; we can move on. As our next course of action, we advise you to start things slowly. So the first camera needs to be the right DSLR; there are a number of options when it comes to DSLR but certain cameras are designed for the usability of the camera, we highly recommend the Nikon D3400. The Nikon D3400 is designed really well, and the qualities of the images are easily among the best on the market, and that’s not all the camera also has a really long battery life which aids in your effort to practice. But the one aspect that draws us to the D3400 is the easy accessibility and user interface.
Once you’ve got yourself your camera, we recommend you to take infographics to see where you stand in terms of image quality, lighting, texture, etc. Once you’ve narrowed down to where it is you require more learning, you can focus on those areas. Look at the learning experience as a game where you need to level up all the skill bars in the beginning and then slowly start focusing on the skills that need more fine-tuning. There are a number of tutorials online for you to learn from the best and hone your skills.
