  • Need some help about photography

    I am a beginner in photography. I would really like to get some tips and tricks for developing my shots. I am using Nikon D 5300 and I have not bought any lenses yet. So it would be very great if any of you guys help me to choose one. I normally take portraits and also sometimes landscape pictures.

    Lighting is the key factor to great portrait photography. If you’ve no experience using studio light before then it pays to get the lights out and to practice taking some portraits. Test with putting a lighting source at various points. You would then be able to look at how the light falls upon your subject, enlightening various zones of their face and the environment that it makes.

    For landscape photography,

    1) Shoot during first light nightfall.

    2) Use a tripod, graduated ND filter, and a good wide-angle lens

    3) Release shots with a wired remote release and at times with mirror locked up

    4) Shoot at a wide aperture however not so wide that the sharpness is influenced because of diffraction. Usually, f/11-f/16 are preferred.

    5) Shoot closeups with a telephoto lens. A telephoto lens helps in isolating certain components of the scene.
