“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”    – Aaron Siskind

 

Photography is an art loved and adored by each one of us. Imagine capturing your beautiful moments and keeping them with yourself a life long! Isn’t it amazing?

Telling it from personal experience, when my college introduced us to a photography course, everyone got mad, and we forgot everything around us. We clicked pictures and used the camera for hours under the scorching sun, and we were extremely happy doing that. Well, of course, nor am I a professional photographer. Neither can I match their hard work and dedication. But trust me, the result will give you immense satisfaction and peace. Let us start from the start!

Get to know 8 photography tips from the award-winning photojournalist:

 

1. Know your surroundings well

This happens to us so many times. We get so involved that we often forget when and where to stop. Every year, we get news related to the accident of an adventure or travel photographer, sometimes they even die while trying to take an extra step. Do not become that person, yes it is your passion, but you need to take a break to keep yourself safe. So, keep two things in mind, first, be fully aware of your surroundings, and second, know the risks of those surroundings.

 

2. Keep your batteries warm.

In extreme conditions, when you are not carrying extra batteries the secret is to keep your battery warm. Your body is a great heater, so keep it as close to your body as possible especially when you are in cold conditions. Before you use them, just make sure that they are as warm as you can get them.

 

 

Go through these links to know more about keeping your batteries warm:

 

  • How to keep your camera batteries warm 

While traveling, you do not always get a chance to change your battery. And it will be so disappointing to travel in cold weather so far only to discover your battery life is less. In such a situation, keeping your batteries warm will help you take more pictures. Read more.

  • Protecting your camera in cold

People love winter, and shooting in winter is really exciting. But do you know cold weather not only damages your skin, but it also affects your camera badly? Sometimes it can even cause permanent damage to your camera. Here are some tips to protect your camera.

 

3. Be well informed about your kit.

When going on an adventure, you really do want to carry anything which can bother you, be it your camera. When you start feeling it as a burden, you will not want to click pictures anymore or enjoy your trip. So, before going out, take a dig at your camera and its accessories. Get to know each little detail so that you will have a clear picture of what are things you need to carry with yourself and things to be left behind. If you are traveling to a place where weight matters, carry a lighter, smaller yet incredibly tough and robust camera. 

 

4. Check your camera setting

 

You may think that I will go through the camera settings once I reach the destination, but never do that. Before you step out, check the ISO, aperture, image quality, video mode, etc. You may get out and want to capture something, but you miss it because you didn’t check the ISO, shutter speed, the aperture of your camera.

5. Know the environment

You do not want to be the person with the camera in people’s faces without knowing anything. Do your research whether you are in a culture or an environment where cameras are appropriate and accepted or not. Talk to your team regarding the people’s behaviour when it comes to capturing them. Discuss everything well and be prepared for the kind of pictures you want. 

 

6. Lenses

Carrying unnecessary lenses can weigh you down. Even when you are shooting professionally, you do not need to carry a heavy bag of lenses. You just have to know which one will do your work better. Try to take only those lenses, which will help you capture most of what you want. 

 

Visit the below links to know more about camera lenses:

 

  • One lens every photographer should have

There are various camera lenses in the market, and every seller will explain to you that they are all equally important. Well, of course, each lens has different qualities, but a 50mm (or 50mm equivalent lens) is one that will help you most, and you must have it. So, get to know why a photographer must have a 50mm lens.

  • Best camera lenses to buy

The camera is of no use without lenses, and it is essential for capturing sharp, detailed photos. Choosing the best lenses can be a difficult task, so we are here to help you. Before you go out to buy, get to know about some of the best lenses.

  • Understanding camera lenses basics

Lenses are a tricky thing to operate. A camera is all about its lenses, so before you go out for shooting, understand lens characteristics and basic types of lenses.
