4 Tips for a Better DSLR Photography

by Sophia Cruz BUSINESS

When it comes to DSLR photography, the beginners often find it to be extremely intimidating in the beginning. A DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera is the combination of the mechanisms and optics of a single lens reflex camera using a digital imaging sensor as compared to the photographic film. It was during the 2000s that DSLR cameras have been put into the place of film-based single lens reflex cameras. Today, DSLR cameras have become the most common type of interchangeable lens camera.

 However, the reason why a common man or a beginner finds using a DSLR camera to be intimidating is that there are numerous different modes, settings, dials and buttons to it. The thick manual that comes with it can be useful for the basic settings. So, if you have just acquired an all-new DSLR, you need to keep a few techniques in mind in order to achieve some best shots.

 Here are a few tips for getting the best shots -  

 Understand the various shooting modes

Locating the shooting modes is not much of a frantic task. You can find them on the dial labelled as M, Av, Auto, Tv, P and so on. The selection of a shooting mode is extremely important as the behaviour of your camera on pressing the shutter button depends hugely on these shooting modes.  To get a better understanding of the shooting modes, register yourself with a professional photography course.

 Learn the Exposure Compensation

The Exposure Compensation is one of the most useful features to learn about. It is used for either increasing or decreasing the default meter reading of the camera that helps in acquiring the actual brightness of a particular scene that is being shot. If you notice that the scene you are going to capture is generally bright, but is appearing dark in the screen, you can apply positive exposure compensation using the exposure compensation in such cases. 

 Comprehend the ISO

The function of ISO is to measure the sensitivity of the sensor of your camera to light. The numeric representation of the ISO sensitivity is from ISO 100 (low sensitivity) to ISO 6400 (high sensitivity). It helps in controlling the amount of light that is required by the sensor for acquiring a better exposure.

 Know the Focus

No matter what ISO you define or what shooting mode you are using, the focus has a greater role to play. In every image that you click, there will be a subject be it a person, animal, bird, flower or any other object that you want to appear in the focus. The focus always has to be sharp in order to make the subject clear to the audience. Join photography classes to have a better understanding of the various focus modes.
