Does photography interest you?
Of course it does, everyone has had at least one photo of themselves. Regardless, this article will appeal to you.
We all have a passion for things, such as, going out with friends, texting, etc. Most guys/girls try to get away from their problems by going out, working out, and/or playing video games. Whatever works for you.
I prefer heading out on a nice, windy day. Just me and my trusty camera. Yes, it’s a cheap $200 FujiFilm camera. Something to start out on, but nonetheless it’s better than any iPhone a ditzy selfie-taker would wield. Which leads to my first point in this article,”Picture Perfect.”
Like what was said previously, I’m using a base model “FujiFilm s8200,” which is a fantastic starter model for any entry-level photographer.
The kit comes with many advancements that will suit anyone just fine, such as a bright 3.0-inch LCD screen, electronic viewfinder, 16.2 million effective pixels 1/2.3-inch BSI-CMOS image sensor. The lens is a pristine Fuji-non 40x optical zoom lens and digital zoom approx. 2.0x (up to 80x with 40x optical zoom). Focal Length: f/4.3mm-172.2m; Full Aperture: f/2.9-f/8.4 (Wide), f/65.-f/7.6-f/18.7 (Telephoto)
The camera can fully support Full HD movie 1080i/60 fps with stereo sound and slow-motion capture at 480fps.
Don’t think you have to spend an arm and a leg to get a Canon or Nikon to start producing top quality photos left and right. It’s just not going to happen that way.
Any experienced photographer will tell you this: “Slow down, and just take your time to get that perfect shot.” In the long run, it will save you many hours of going through photos and trashing half your shots, all because you rushed. Don’t do it.
Is There Variety In This?
Do you ever see yourself glancing at a man with a tripod and a camera facing nothing?
He sees something an average onlooker does not see.
There is variety in everything. The same goes for photography, like photographing different scenes, such as wildlife, landscape, aquatic, weddings, and parties. The list goes on and on. It requires a good eye to spot shots and potential in certain situations of all types. For instance, a rainy day, a puddle with a backdrop of a women under an umbrella. It can all make a dramatic shot. Switch the filter to black and white,
and you're all set.
What Caught Your Eye?
Anything catches my eye such as interesting and shiny things.
In photography, I was intrigued by my aunt. She is a professional wedding/family photographer. Unlike me, she has a bazooka for a camera rig. Her lens costs more than my truck for sure. But her fascination for it appealed to me. Although, I went a different route by seeking adventure through climbing trees, windows, crawling under things, etc.
I do all of this to get my shot. I’m a landscape, urban, and wildlife photographer.
What would I get out of this?
Photography is not something you just buy into.
It requires time out of your schedule, patience, and skill.
You must have an eye to be able to see shots or opportunities out of objects or anything on the horizon. A diamond in the rough kind of skill, which is taken up over time. It had taken me a while to finally overlook my full surroundings and not analyze every single shot or position.
I hope this article and my review could further your taste in photography as well as the art of using a camera to create lifelong images. Just remember this:
Slow down, survey your surroundings, be patient, and squeeze the button.
See if you won’t surprise yourself.
