Starting photography



You will need: a camera, an imagination.
  • Look around you. What do you see? Does it deserve to be captured in time? If you like something, an object or landscape or person, take a picture, because someone else will probably like it too.
  • Find something uniquely you. If you want photography to be something you do every day, your pictures have to be different. You can't have the same style as someone else, so look at things from a different angle.
  • Know your equipment. e.g. You don't know what that button on your camera does? Find out. Ask someone, or read the camera's manual (which hopefully you haven't thrown away like me- ha ha!) There is someone I know called Google, ask him and you are sure to be alright. Tip: ask the staff in the shop about your camera before you buy it!
  • Learn the tricks. Ask other photographers for advice and tips. Sometimes they will know a little more than you.
  • There is always going to be someone better than you. And worse. Accept that some people have been taking photos for longer than you. And some people have been for less. But that's OK. They are all fellow camera-lovers and will all inspire and encourage you in their own (no matter how crazy) way.
Today's quote is:

Sometimes the little things can make a difference.


An eight year-old said that to me today. See if that can help you with your photography.

I'd like to send a shoutout to my crazy friend, Chatterbox (you know who you are) :)

If I missed any tips, or if you guys know any tips, or you, Chatterbox have found this, please write a comment.

Comments

Hi guys! So I started this blog this day last week and I haven't had any comments, apart from 3 I wrote myself. How hard can it be? I often comment what I think on my favourite blogs, and I like to be honest when I'm writing. I changed the comment settings, so that you don't need an account to comment (You just write it and press 'comment' or whatever) Please could you tell me what you think of the blog, or what you think my next post should be about, or any ideas on how to improve my blog. Or just something about yourself. I'm really happy that my first post got so many reads, I have many more than ten readers now.  Thanks to everyone who reads my blog and (ok, I think you get the message now) comment!

I'd like to keep this post short as it just a notification :) Thanks

I've written a SHORT STORY!!!

So I have written a short story about a girl, and she loves music. I hope you enjoy it! EEEEK! I really enjoyed writing it. The title is based on a line the song "American Pie" by Don McLean. If you spot any mistakes, just comment below. And tell me what you think in the comments! 


THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED  By Meain Girl The traffic on the way home was terrible. I was so bored in the bus, I actually got all my homework done. When I got off the bus, I ran home, opened the door and went upstairs, taking the usual two steps at a time. I ran into my room, grabbed my guitar and started to practice the song me and Edmond wrote. Me and Edmond have been best friend’s since I moved into the neighbourhood. He lives on the street behind me, so it’s easy to keep in touch. While I was in the middle of thinking what to put in the next verse, the doorbell rang. I was hoping it was Mum or Dad so they could put on the dinner. But who was at the door but Beth. Argh- Beth. She is my annoying nex…
