A digital camera can be an amazing tool in order to capture pictures. The thing about life is that so many moments happen only once. You may be able to keep them in your memory, but unfortunately, memories fade. If you captured those moments with a really great picture, they will never fade from your memory.
Think about your life right now. Think about the moments that you want to capture. If you have children, you know how fast they grow up. They only take their first steps once. They only go to their first day of school once. They only graduate high school once. If you have any family, you may never know when you can all be together again. If you miss the opportunity, you do not know if you will have another chance to get that group picture.
There is an old saying that says: “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Think about how many thousands of words you can capture with your photography. Think about how many thousands of words are missed everyday by those who have not taken the time to learn how to take pictures. You do not have to miss another word.
There is so much to learn and explore about taking great pictures, and this guide is just the beginning of a long journey for you. Hopefully, from these lessons, you have gained the tools to understand your camera and understand what makes an amazing picture. Now, it is time to let your imagination work. Do not be afraid to experiment with camera settings, posing and image framing. It is through experimenting and trial and error that good photographers become great photographers.
