Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You maybe quite comfortable around a camera, or a complete amateur, but if you have a love for photography then this article will help you realize where to start your journey to take your photography to the next level. Some of the advantages of digital photography are that you can see your photos immediately after you have taken them, delete them if you so choose. You can also edit and email images quite easily.

There are 2 types of digital cameras. They are DSLRs and automatics. If you are serious about photography or intend to make it a serious hobby, a DSLR is recommended because it gives you so much more control.

The first most obvious thing you need to do is get a camera. Selecting your camera comes down to several factors, such as your budget, what sort of functionality you want from it, and what you intend to do with your photography; keep it as a hobby, use it for business purposes or go pro. Once you have picked a camera, you will find that becoming good at photography takes a bit of work.

The following 5 tips for beginner digital photographers will help you take great professional looking photographs.

1. Manually set your white balance to the right levels so that your images have natural looking color tones.

2. Select a suitable background. The background of your image can really enhance how your subject looks and greatly affects the feel of your photograph. Select your background wisely for a good composition.

3. Lighting is so important. With time you will come to realize what type of lighting suits what condition. The lighting can make or break a photo.

4. ISO calibration. To make sure your photos don't look like they were taken by a 3-year old, make sure your camera is well calibrated. This is another factor that can be the difference between a "WOW" picture and an "Err" picture.

5. Experiment with your zoom and flash settings until you get used to the settings under different conditions.

The 5 tips above will help you ease the learning curve of learning to be a photographer and like anything else with time and practice you will notice definite improvement.

Remember that simply because you buy a brand new camera doesn't mean that you become a pro photographer over night. While the right camera will make a significant difference, it takes time and practice. Experiment as much as you can with your new camera until you grow well accustomed to it. Make sure you study all the settings and understand how they work in different conditions. With time and practice you should be able to start taking pro quality photographs. An excellent choice for your first DSLR is the Nikon D7000 camera which comes at a great retail price for enthusiasts and according to any Nikon D7000 review out there it performs like a pro camera.
