Finding the Perfect Tool
Experts and professional at photography use heavy lenses, and cameras which provide many features, but for a beginner, buying that kind of camera will not be as useful as the first steps towards photography, is learning what it actually is.

You may not believe it, but lights have a very important role in photography, and are kind of like its backbone. Too would make the picture too bright, whereas not enough light can make the picture gloomy. This is why it is important to play around with different shades of light.

There are 4 basic fundamentals related to photography and light, they are:
- Exposure- Being able to control the amount of light captured in an image.
- Quality- If you want the image to be ‘soft’ or ‘hard ‘ or even ‘warm’ or ‘cold’.
- Direction- Position of the source of light and the object.
- Shadows & Highlights- Highlighting the pin points of pictures exposed with shadows or light.
The focus of the camera on the image must be dynamic, which is why the correct settings, and the perfect focus is required. After you have fixed the setting of the camera, get the lens to focus on the object which you want to capture. Keep in mind the lighting of the surrounding area. If the shoot is outdoors, and it is a bit dark outside, the focus will not be as good; you will need to increase the ISO settings. On the other hand if it is too bright, you will need to reduce it to ensure the picture does not become too bright.
The speed of the shutter plays a very important role while taking a picture. The longer the shutter time is, the more focus ability the shutter has, thus the quality of the picture remains fabulous.
