I want to learn photography, what can I do?

Abstract photo of a city
English version: This is the question we’ve all done when we have felt motivated to create images. There is a concrete path, and no magic recipe. In fact, part of the magic of this world is created one’s own path.

The first thing would be to know what kind of camera I need, and I have budget. A camera is expensive, so there are sure to hit.

Before you decide, it is interesting to see forums, read magazines, and find photos that we like and know what camera and lens are made. Flickr and 500px often indicate the camera used. Because they use the same camera to a professional, not automatically make us professionals.

Photography is an art that is learned throughout life, it is important not to lose sight.

Once you already have the camera, we can start. In my opinion, I think there are three points that should work:
• Technical, which included use of the camera objective concepts, understand light, etc.
• Composition
• Post-processing

Although they are separate things, you have to work in parallel. The technique is to understand concepts such as aperture, ISO, exposure, etc. Understanding parameters such as depth of field, directly affects the composition. Knowing the basic rules of composition will also be necessary.

Finally the defendant, as a boring image, by the fact of making it black and white for example, can add interest.

Therefore it is necessary to work slowly the three fields. Thanks to the Internet, we have access to lots of free information. There are plenty of tutorials, websites, videos where they convey concepts and ideas.

The next and most important is to practice, practice and more practice. I recommend whenever possible to take the camera, and use it.

You may also want to join a photography club. Surely in most cities has this kind of entity.

That’s all, I hope you have enjoyed this post and encourage you to learn photography
