How To Use A Digital Camera To Take Better Pictures

May 5, 2008
Ah, you have started this new hobby of picture taking and now you need to know how to take good pictures. Using a digital camera and digital images is the latest and greatest. Your just can not wait to start this new past time. Taking pictures of friends and family will wonderful.

What you may be asking is how to educate yourself on this digital camera for photography. You will need to learn a basic understanding on how to use this new digital camera. It will have a lot of new technology to utilize in picture taking.

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.

When you have taken a photo it will be stored in your camera in a memory card. These memory cards vary in size. The size may be 64Meg to 4 Gig in range. So the larger the size of the memory card the larger amount of photo you can store in your digital camera.

An accessory that is needed is a battery charger and rechargeable batteries. Digital cameras with viewfinders will often eat thur your batteries very fast. So, having spare batteries around when you're taking pictures is a handy.

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 the digital camera is turned on it will have an indicator light to signal it is ready to take a photo. On some of these cameras it allows you to press a button half way in order to allow it to auto-focus. Then press it the rest of the way to take the photo.

The one thing I like most about a digital camera is viewing your picture after taking them. All you have to do is look into the view finder to check out the photo you just took. If you should not like the photo just delete it and start over.

Important to remember that always install the software that came with your digital camera. It will help a great way to get you acquainted with your camera. Also these cameras are equipped with a USB port in order to load your images into your PC.
