Photography Degrees - Tips, How to use properly and such by Joseph kalys


To those who are new and inexperienced to photography, simple tips and use of proper image taking!

I see new people come in and see what they have in store. Personally i have wanted to help photographer to develop your own knowledge. But here is few mistakes and how to fix and/or avoid them:

This is a common misconsept term of focus on a subject. Notice how unsharp of the subject that you took, Thus can be a hard for only one image taking... But I do it is to take multiple photos, to select the focused and appealing image.

I've seen people mentioning about a phone use... Instead of an actual camera. Phones can be used for few things that can be good for it, otherwise it cannot improve to the IOS and not knowing the difference in composition and such mistakes.


Is the sensitivity to light - low light point. High IOS speeds between 1600-3200-6400... Is never okay.. Because you can see grain on your photos, so the common is 200-400 IOS or even lower (can be better). Can be a following towards light, that is a need of balancing exposures, to light is over-exposed, and under-exposed is too darker.

Shutter speeds

Is the creative side for long exposures, mainly at night and waterfall/streams in the day. It creates the freeze of time (and blurs moving objects) and makes the image magical for the long exposure, includes IOS and aperture. But the thing is the shorter shutter speeds (10/4000 seconds) tend to make a one-time photograph without any blur, works for sports.


Is the range of the use of DOF (Depth of Field) which creates a dynamic structure levels of allow seeing more of the area/image to see beyond the point-selected subject and the setting. The like f/15 will sharpen the DOF as great, but blurring as in maximum is f/2.8 (commonly) but f/3.5 takes a smaller area as to feet per field/depth.


Considering as the Rule of Thirds. Horizontal is the level of beyond without a tilt. Vertical is the intersection-fit balance for both.

Stillness for Better Shooting

If you have troubles with focusing and keeping it still and such, simply use a tripod or lean-on to make more effective, even photography poses that can help you be like a photographer! Laying down or leaning is my most for nature, because it brings a feeling when doing macro nature/landscape. 


This can be in many uses... But it is a better way to fill light. Different methods that you can use more effectively: direct flash, bounce flash, direct diffuser flash, and bounce diffuser flash. The very good and effective is a diffuser; it creates softness. Overall it helps when it can be a bounce diffuser flash to the subject to fill, lighten and softness, for portraits.

Always use software... And never use online because it is not suggested to use. Photoshop is a non-online use which no one will be able to "steal" your image making than on a site. And another way for a not stealing works that is watermarking your own photography works. This is mostly and considering for anyone to steal and not get credit to you.


A common phrase to know what you like and what your camera can do for you. "Know your limitations." It makes an easy understanding towards the knowing of your own abilities. But it fits to your style in photography, you can see me doing my own ways/styles that i can easily capture my likes.
