If you’re taking photography digital classes then you’re bound to make mistakes while practicing.  Those who have spent years learning the ropes of shooting already know some common mistakes that beginners photographers do. Such errors can be evaded with a bit of prior knowledge. Let’s dig into the following points and understand how you can start your photography career as a beginner:

Adjust Shooting Mode

The understanding of shooting mode decides how much control you want to give your camera versus yourself. There are various options that you can select to have full access to you being fully in charge. With fully auto mode, you are restricting your camera shooting in the Jpeg and make it hard to change the susceptibility of your image.

 To avoid the exposure of an image, you should put your camera to M means Manual (gulp!). This will enable you to get a better quality of image without any exposure.

Control Shutter Speed

The shutter is an inbuilt component of your camera that opens and closes at a fixed time. It’s measure in seconds and fractions of seconds. The lower the shutter speed, the better you capture movement in the frame. The fast shutter speed means you will freeze the action. If you’ve to shoot with a shutter speed slower than 1/60, mount your camera onto a tripod to avoid disturbance during shooting.

Understand The Use of Aperture

The aperture is built component aside into your lens and simply a bladed hole that opens and closes and can influence the depth of range in your image.  If your camera lens has a maximum and minimum aperture setting. When your camera aperture number is low we say the aperture is broad and when the number is higher we say the aperture is tight.

If you do close-up or macro photography, you should use a higher number or narrow depth of field to keep more of the subject in focus. The more you practice understanding the use of aperture, the better you can enhance your photography style.

Practice ISO Setting

After understanding the basic principle of shutter speed and aperture, now it’s time for you to get into the ISO setting. It’s the sensitivity of your camera’s sensor.  If you’ve adjusted your ISO set to a low number then your camera is less sensitive to light. However, if you are shooting in bright sunshine, you can set your sensor at a low number for better image quality.

Be Focused

If you are not good at focusing while shooting then your camera autofocus feature can help you a lot in the shooting. While taking pictures, there are two aspects that you need to take into account, the focus point and focus mode.

The focus point of your camera is a viewfinder or back screen your camera will see the AF grid. Whereas, the focus mode varies from point setting designed to purvey to take into account whether your subject is stationary or moving.
