So I’m thinking that you the amateur photographer are thinking about trying to sell some of your photos online. You of coarse are wondering if you can actually make some money at it or is it something that you will need to put a lot of effort into. Also you will ask yourself if your computer skills are capable of getting everything together that you will need, and if not how can you find out.
You my friend are in luck because today you can get a good digital camera for a really nice price and you can learn all that you need to know about photography without leaving your home, with the exception of going to take photos but that’s the fun part. You have many books to choice from and also the online photography course. Even well known photography schools have some type of online program.
Some of the benefits that the amateur photographer can get from these online photography courses are many. Just one of the benefits is that you will learn how to take a better photograph and being able to do that will make everything else a lot easier. You do have ways to digitally make your photo better, but if you do it right the first time you will be well ahead of the game. Believe me when I say that PhotoShop is whole new thing to learn all by itself!
One thing that I believe any photographer will agree on is that you need to use a tripod. The tripod can be just about as important as the camera. The reason that I say this is that camera shake is the photographers worst enemy. You may be looking back on photos that you have taken in the past and wonder why some come out with a blur to them. The first thing to look at would be camera movement. You can cause camera shake by pressing down on the button to take the photo.
When you are looking at tripods see if you can find one with a built in level. If you cannot find this stop at your hardware store and buy you a little level. It would not make any sense to set up a tripod and the picture leaning. If you are shooting any kind of wide shot you will have to deal with this issue. Another thing to carry with you is wood shims, these make real easy to set up with instead of dealing with what is on location.
