Develop Your Photography Skills


Stuart Morgan is a freelance photographer at Airbank in California. In 2011, he received a bachelor’s degree in commercial photography from the Brooks Institute of Photography.

If you have mastered the basics of composition and photography, try taking it one step further. Make it a hobby, or maybe a career, instead of taking pictures of the usual holidays, pets, and children. It’s time to drag images instead of just acceptable images.

Step Up:

Find someone who can help you buy a useful camera. Maybe a rejected SLR camera is lying around your dad or a photographer friend. If you don’t have a camera, borrow it until you can afford it. Really any digital camera from the last 10 years and practically any analog camera so far would be good enough to give you great images. Having your own camera would be a huge help.

Learn the basics if you haven’t already. The basics of photography include mixing, which basically puts the subject within the frame of a photo, lighting, and the basic process of your camera.


Get ready. Having the camera in your hand for at least half the time, a good picture, and a modest place to stay in the right place. Take your camera with you as soon as possible. Also, make sure to use your camera frequently. There is nothing better than taking it alone.

As Ken Rockwell says of his early experience: Did you say in my logic, “Everything that happened?” Have I seen the keyword? I was a spectator. I thought photography meant taking pictures of everything that passed. no! You have to go out and find things. The hard part is finding and seeing, the easy part is photographing what you are looking for.

Go Out and Take Photos:

Go out at any time of the day, any day, and find things. Don’t wait for the right opportunity (but be prepared if that happens!) Go out and find out about them. Find opportunities anywhere (whether in the mall or around the world), and go anywhere and find opportunities. If you can see something in your head, chances are you can compile it and even shoot it.

Learn To Watch:

Take pictures of shadows, or reflections, or light-shining light or dark objects. A lot of people think the “golden hour” (the last two hours with daylight) is the ideal conditions for lighting. This is due to the targeted light it provides, which allows it to create depth in an image when properly positioned. However, this does not mean that one cannot take a picture in the middle of the day and still not get good light. The indirect sun of your head can be seen as an open shade to find harsh, sharp, dim conditions or to find good soft light. However, there are rules to break, so don’t take these instructions literally.

Find Emotions and Gestures When Photographing People.

Do they express satisfaction? Restlessness Grief Do they understand thinking? Or does he just not pay attention when you tell him something to do? Find structures, shapes, and patterns. Stunning black and white images are impressive. Because black and white forces the photographer to look for them.


When taking pictures in public, always try to be nice, and remember, if you take pictures of people in a particular person or picture, first ask them if it’s okay?
