It is important to remember that photography is an art and therefore there is literally no end to learning. Getting your basic photography lessons from someone who is good at the job is a great idea. Here are a few tips to put you in the right path.

However, you will not be carrying your tripod everywhere you go so it is also important to practice holding the camera properly. The closer the camera is to your body, the stiller it will be and the better photos you will be able to take.

For portraits, go for wide aperture

If you are shooting portraits of animals or human beings, going for wide aperture is a good idea. Make sure that your subject is the main focus and a wide aperture will let you blur the distractions away so that the focus is on the subject.

If you want to shoot something that puts the focus on everything, then doing for with a narrow aperture is the best idea.

Use flash carefully
