Where to start when picking up photography
Photography has become a hobby for many people nowadays, and for some time some of these people have looked for ways to learn to take better pictures. There are articles in specialized blogs, but there are people who do not understand everything they say because they do not know some of the basic concepts. And do not know where to start. Here you can find a small orientation that helps take the first steps in photography. So, in this small guide to photography, you can expect it to be useful.
If you already have a camera, this step can be ignored. Actually: any camera is used to start regardless of whether it is the newest model or the oldest model.
Before starting to talk about such or such features, one of the first tips that should be taken into consideration and that more help: is always keep in mind that the camera does not make the photographer. Or putting in another way: with the best cameras, they can also exist bad photos. The light, the framing, the angle, and the precise moment are some of the most decisive elements when it comes to taking a spectacular photograph, and none of them depends on the camera. This is not to say that the camera chosen is the same: not at all. Only that there are some things that the camera does and others that the photographer must do.
Choosing the appropriate camera
If there is already a digital camera and you think that to start deepening the hobby you should buy another one, one piece of advice is to wait a little bit. Begin by taking the first steps. Experiment and realize the limitations that there are with this current camera and what are the features that are going to be used the most. And once it is clear, the search for the future camera can begin: there are more guarantees that what is bought is what is really needed.
Learning Photography from the Beginning
If you already own the camera, be it better or worse, so you are ready to start taking the first steps in the wonderful world of photography. There is a lot to learn. However, there is no need to be afraid. Because there is a lot of information to learn does not mean that you should know everything to enjoy photography, but you will have a lot of time in which you can experiment and try something new about it.

Photography is not science, but art. People will be able to see that, sometimes, there are great, beautiful photographs in which some of the rules of the composition are not fulfilled.
Everything in photography turns around the light. And the cameras have different controls to determine the way in which each light is collected. Once it is decided the framing of a photo, there are a series of controls that can be used to play with the levels of focus, intensity, colour, etc. with which the photographer wants each of the elements and planes of his photography to appear.
