Integrate: First of all, take photos with love. When you integrate with your camera you will make very good frames. Remember how high-end and especially full of the camera you are taking the photo. Someone who uses D40 or even Coolpix can take better photos than someone who uses D3s. Remember, you can’t take photos with just “money.”

Get To Know Your Camera: Read your machine’s manual not once but several times. Make sure to apply what you have learned on your camera while reading. Believe me, every time you read it, you’ll discover a different feature. Read reviews and comparisons on the internet about your machine, try to understand. Review photos taken with your camera. If you start taking pictures without recognizing your camera, your love of taking photos may end before it begins.

Get To Know Your Lens: You should know the limits of your lens and the values it performs best. You should know which range gives the sharpest values and which values cause distortion. You should learn what zoom, prime, macro and wide angle lenses are and how to shoot good shots. Constantly go ahead and take your existing lens before you get to know the lens very well.

Auxiliary Elements: You should know what the auxiliary accessories used for taking photos, such as tripod, flash, filters, are used for what purpose and how they produce results in the photo.

Take the Photo In Your Head First: Take it in your head before you take it with your camera. Ask yourself what you want to see after shooting and adjust the camera settings accordingly and press the shutter button.

Take Lots of Photos: You can’t get anywhere just by reading and studying. You must apply what you read. Take photos without getting tired or bored, examine the photos you take later, ask yourself what you are doing right and wrong. You will surely see improvements in your next shots.

Share: Be open to criticism and share your photos on the internet. Take comments from other photo lovers and try to improve yourself on missing topics.

Observe: Try to read the photos you see on the internet, in magazines, in newspapers. Try to guess at what time and where the photos you are viewing were taken, and what the aperture, shutter and ISO values used when taking them are. Think about what you’d do better in that frame.
