10 Photography Tips for Beginners

Updated: Dec 9, 2019

It's the season of giving! Get a new camera during Black Friday or Cyber Monday? Or maybe you're hoping to open up a new one Christmas morning. Either way, here are some tips to help you get started with photography!


1) Holding the camera

One thing I love to take pictures of is the outdoors. Nature offers a lot of beautiful photo opportunities and it's often I see other hikers doing the same thing. It's easy to tell who knows what they're doing and who doesn't by the way they hold their camera.


The best way to hold a DSLR is to have your right hand around the hand grip and your left hand positioned under the body of the camera and use your fingers to adjust your focal length and focus. Keep your elbow tucked in.
