Default For Beginners: The Basics of Photography

I recently wrote this article for my own blog, since a lot of visitors were asking about books for beginners. This is actually just the first article in a series; I suspect that the next one will be available in another week. You can read it here:

The Three Basics of Photography

Hope that someone here finds this helpful!

As Ever,
J. Matthew Gore

Good start. Lucid, well written.

However be aware that the management of this site would probably prefer you posted the article right here in this forum, rather than referring the readers to another site.

I simply love the example used to explain SS, ISO and Aperture. Super

thanks friend for sharing such a great article with us...

I also learnt the basic photography rules from Mr. Kishore Mamillapalli who is one of the leading wildlife photographers from South Africa. He used to say that “Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder”. If you like what you see on your camera screen, or through the viewfinder, you will like the photograph.

There are some basic photography rules for composition. Once you know these rules, you can use them, ignore them, or break them. Follow your gut, and you will end up with spectacular, sometimes breathtaking results. Kishore is really an astonishing wild life photographer and has a great eye for details..
