The Beginners Guide to Photography

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Whether you just got a new camera, or just want to brush up on your photography skills this beginner’s guide is a great place to start.

Beneath the heading Point and Shoot you’ll find a listing of articles to get you started.

The Camera – this section basically takes you through the evolution of the camera. It starts all the way back in 500 B.C. through to the modern cameras we use today.

Camera Modes – this section explains the plethora of camera modes your camera may have.

The Half-Press – I was never as happy as when I discovered the half-press. Instead of just firing off pictures by full pressing the button, if you do half-press you ready most cameras and cause a focus lock to come up on your screen. This gives you an opportunity to take a look at what you’re taking a picture of and make sure it is centered and that the lighting is good. Then when you’re sure that you’ve got the shot you can finish by pressing the button the rest of the way down. This section explains how this works with handy illustrations.

Controlling Flash – this can be one of the more frustrating aspects of your camera, I still have trouble with controlling the flash of my camera. This section will explain to you how you can harness lighting to make your photos the best they can be!

Processing and Printing – this section walks you briefly through image editing and your printing options.

After you’re through these shorter articles, you can explore the content under the Photographic Concepts. Or you can explore the different categories at the top of the page on the menu bar.

I would also recommend you check out the Digital Camera Review article if you’re looking to buy a new camera. I found the reviews to be helpful as they are graded both on price and how well they take photos.
