Keep settings for your camera simple. Do not attempt to take on too many customizable settings at once. Choose to master a new setting monthly, from shutter speed to aperture. This will enable you get the image that you want, when you want it, instead of losing time having to fumble with the settings.
If you do not use the ISO in your camera correctly, it will work against you. When ISO levels are higher, you will find more grain in both the viewable and printable versions of your images. If grainy images are not what you are wanting, it can be a great disappointment to find that you have this in your finished shots.
If you are taking photos in a low light setting, you need to decrease the aperture, which is also known as the f/stop setting. The reason this is important is because the aperture is widened, which permits more light to enter the photo when you capture your subject.
Your camera has a feature called focus-lock, and you should take the time to learn how to use it. Cameras automatically set focus in center of each frame, so in order to take pictures of off-center subjects, you have to tell the camera how to focus on them. This is often achieved by gently pressing the shutter button while aiming the camera at the subject. With the button half-depressed, physically move the camera to frame your shot. Press down the shutter fully to capture your shot.
Camera equipment is fragile and quite expensive, so make sure that you’re protecting your equipment with a solid carrying case. Most of the time, the reason why photography accessories break is due to the owner’s negligence. Look in your local electronics store or camera shop for cases that will suit your needs.
Don’t limit your portrait photography to just the face. The human body has plenty of other beautiful parts of which you can take pictures.
Do not allow your camera batteries to run low because you never know when a photo opportunity will occur. Digital cameras usually use quite a bit of battery power, usually when using LCD screens, so always make sure your battery is fully charged before using the camera. It is also a good idea to carry around spare batteries. This way you will never miss out on a great shot.
