Taking Up Photography As a Profession – Tips By Nitin Khanna to Help You!

Photography Tips

I, Nitin Khanna, settled in Portland, Oregan, was fortunate enough to have several brilliant and talented photographers who took me under them for showing me the new ropes. Without their valuable advice there is no way that I would have become the finest photographer, which I am today.

There are some tips that I’ve picked up over the years, which I want to share with you and what is essential to become a professional photographer.

Shoot Everyday: The best way to improve your skills is to practice, practice and practice. Shoot as much as you can for getting the best out of you and experiment your style. Spend hours and hours behind your camera. This can help you a lot!

See The Light: Firstly see from where the light is coming, and accordingly use it. Whether the light is coming from the sun or from an artificial source, use your camera accordingly to get the better picture than before.

Use Flash During The Day: Everyone uses flash at night time, but that’s not the case, if it is bright day outside and the sun is creating harsh shadows on your subject, switch on your flash.

Read Your Camera’s Manual: To get started with your camera the best way is to read the manual thoroughly to know the functionality in detail.

Set Goals: If you really want to know how to become a professional photographer, you need to keep up with reading and listening and participating and learning.

Get Your Subject To Relax: This is the main factor which professional photographers swear by. It is really beneficial to take out the time and make the person comfortable by interacting, which can lead to better photography.

Ask for Permissions: When photographing people, especially while in countries which have different cultures and languages, it can be very hard for a photographer to communicate. If you photograph someone you should go and seek permission first before photographing them.

Be Part of a Photographic Community: Be a part of the community where you can share your interest and work with other group members that offers feedback on how great you are going. You can learn new things that can help you in improving your technique, and can take your level of photography to the next level.

Now that you have a clear vision of photography through the above tips, I will prefer that you must experiment these. I can assure that it will be going to a very fun activity.

Exposure – The Basic element of Photography by Nitin Khanna

Nitin Khanna Photography Tips

When photographers talk about “exposure,” we simply take it as the darkness or brightness of a photograph. It looks easy enough to take a photograph that is correctly exposed, but in reality it can be quite the trick.Read on the present blog to help get the right exposure with your camera settings. If you are reading this blog post, it possibly means that you currently shoot on the automatic setting or the Green mode of your camera. This implies that your camera entirely controls the exposure of your shot.

In automatic mode, your camera chooses an aperture setting a shutter speed, an ISO setting, and a host of other settings for you. Automatic can be a convenient option, but it seriously limits your creative ability to shoot a stunning picture.

All the elements (ISO, shutter speed and aperture or f-stop) of exposure work together and compensate for each other to produce a properly exposed picture. These basic elements of exposure balance each other to create what can be a very well exposed picture. Before we go on, let’s talk about what good or proper exposure means.

It is important to remember that the exposure settings on your camera are tools for clicking the photos you want. There is no correct or incorrect way to get the photographs you want.ISO, shutter speed and aperture are like the three legs of a tripod, to use an appropriately photographic expression. As one of these factors varies, the others have to adjust to preserve and accommodate the right exposure. When your shutter speed is very fast, you have to allow more light through the aperture. This can be done by changing the f-stop. If you opt to alter the f-stop to decrease the depth of field, you then have to reduce shutter speed, so the appropriate amount of light gets to the sensor.

Something good about the digital cameras is that you can modify the ISO settings. In older times, you had to stick with the same speed setting for the full roll of film. If you adjust the ISO, just be sure to fine-tune the other settings to adjust for the increased or decreased light sensitivity.

    Now, as you know why it is so important to have control over the exposure, your next step should be to learn about shutter, aperture and ISO.
