How To Take Good Pictures With A Digital Camera

Apr 28, 2008
You have taken up the hobby of photography and you now need to know how to take good pictures. Its time to start learning this new hobby of picture taking, it will be wonderful. It will be an idea hobby to blend in with your family and friends.

What you will need to do is learn a basic understanding of this digital camera. You may be asking yourself how in the world you are going to do this. I will start you on the journey to learn what you need with this article.

I will start with some basic info on the digital camera. Digital images are store in what are called pixels. Most often in mega pixels, a picture is often not less than 3 mega pixels, for a 3x5 print out to be clear. So something in the range of a 11x18 picture you would be looking for 6 to 7 mega pixel range. A good all around digital camera would have to be about 5 mega pixel range.

Storage of the digital image is the next thing I will bring into play. After you take a picture it will be stored in your camera until you put it on your PC. It will be stored on what is called a memory card. The size ranges in 125 Meg to 2 Gig which means 10 pictures to 500 stored on the memory card.

Well just about every digital camera is run on batteries these days. Some cameras are more power hungry than others, so invest into a battery charger with rechargeable batteries. Also extra sets of batteries help a great deal.

The most basic operation in your digital camera is how to turn it on. Almost every camera operation is different in how it is turned on. It all boils down to either it is turned on by opening its shutter or with a simple on/off button.

Once you have figured out how to turn your camera on, it will most likely have some type of indicator light. That indicator light will light up when the digital camera is ready to take a photo. One thing to take note of the button you press in order to take that snap shot is if you press it half way down the camera will auto focus on the the image it sees thur the lens.

One of the big differences with a digital camera is the fact you can view the photo you just took. If you should not like the photo you can go ahead and delete it. That is a very nice advantage if you ask me.

Now the digital camera you just picked up will have came with some software. Take that software and install it in your PC. Take the time to become acquainted with it. It will help you in knowing how to take good pictures. Just install the CD in the CD drive and it should install itself.
