Looking Into Fine Art Photography As a Beginner
Photography is the discipline, art, and science of making durable pictures by capturing light, either electronically through an optical lens, or biochemically via a sensitive light-sensitive substance like photographic film. There are many different styles of photography, all of which can be used to create stunning photographs. However, you must have good basic tools in order to get a decent photograph. It’s best to start out with a simple, basic camera. Once you have that, you can move on to more advanced, high tech equipment, but for now, the most basic, entry-level tools that you need for a beginner’s photography course are:
Now, since you already know that you should not just take pictures of your friends and family, you might want to start focusing on some of the more fine art photography types. One of my favorite styles of photographs is still life photography, specifically landscape or seascape photography. There are some amazing still life photographs that I love (check out my website to see some of my favorites), and they come in a wide variety of styles: portraits of people, architecture, nudes, landscapes, fireworks, pet paintings, abstract photography…the list goes on.
Now, there are many different types of photographers, so you may want to do some research on your own in order to find a type of photographer that fits you best. For example, some photographers specialize in macro photography, so if that’s your thing, then you’ll probably be interested in photographing very small subjects. Still photographers tend to be more adept at capturing movement, so if you enjoy taking photos of still objects, you will probably do well in this field. However, don’t let the above deter you from looking into other areas of photography, because there are plenty of different types of photographers that are capable of taking excellent still shots, even with difficult subject matter.
