Photography for beginners

Setting up your camera

Disclaimer.   I am not a good photographer, but I do know a bit about photography.  No one can teach you how to become a good photographer, you have to develop your own style.  There are some basics to learn when you get started, and I hope to help with that, but as you develop there are no hard and fast rules.  There are guidelines, but if you always slavishly follow them, your photography may become competent, but it may never become exciting.  Just like music, indeed most enjoyable human experience, you need a mix of predictability and the unexpected.  As you gain experience you will come to know when to break the rules.  You need to discover what works for you.

    We start with two topics:

  1. Understanding resolution
  2. Setting Quality and image size on your camera
