A camera is a like a save button for the mind’s eye and the best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed. From landscape photographs to wedding photographs, there is now a mode for almost all kinds of scenarios. Having said that, there is a lot that one can learn by fiddling with the manual controls of a digital camera. The growing knowledge of photography builds on itself as we continue to explore our talents and passion for clicking images.
There are certain basics that we must remember while doing this- never compromise on quality because the number of megapixels translate to a higher caliber of photography. Understanding the play of light and shadows will often decide if an image is worthy of printing some day. Even though aperture and shutter speed may not be adjustable on every camera, they are two of the most important aspects of taking great photographs. To say that taking great photographs takes years of training is only true for hardcore professionals now. Human errors, wherever they may cause issues in taking good photographs, have largely been compensated by intelligent technologies in digital cameras.
