6 Responses to Basic Photography – Tips for Beginners

  1. Thank you for this post. I would like to invest in a nice camera and don’t really know where to begin. Would you recommend the camera you bought? Your little girl is really cute!

    • Hi Kelly! I love my camera…it is a great “starter” DSLR but very high quality and well priced. Honestly, most of the stuff I read while researching cameras actually said that most DSLRs are actually pretty equal…especially if you get a Canon or Nikon. It’s the lenses that will really make the difference. I’ve heard that the Canon Rebels are great. Also, we purchased ours from Cameta Camera – they had the best price on the camera body and lens we wanted. Hope that helps!

  2. Meredith, I’m in the same boat as you. Just purchased a DSLR last month which will be arriving with my visiting mother-in-law from the states next month. I’ve read tons of tutorials, many of those you mentioned here, and can’t wait to get crisp, clear photos of my family (and soon-to-come newborn son.) I know I have tons to learn and lots of trial and error are waiting for me, but I can’t help but get excited about the upcoming arrival of my new-to-me Canon DSLR.

    • Congrats on your purchase! It was a long time in coming for me…a whole lot of money to spend on one thing, which made it a difficult decision…but I am SO glad we did! You will have lots of fun playing with it. The only way to really get better is to take lots of pictures, it’s all about trial and error! Hope you have a blast with your new toy :-)

  3. :-) I manage the Digital Photography School Pinterest account and discovered this post, ironically, while Pinning stuff. I was looking for more tutes to pin and saw the mention.

    Thank you so much for what you said about DPS and let me know if there is anyway I can improve it.
