FAQ

Let me start by answering some of the questions that everyone asks me:

HOW CAN I LEARN ABOUT MY CAMERA?
Learning about your camera and how to get take a beautiful picture is the first step in becoming a great photographer, so this is a perfect question to ask.

I have created an e-book the covers not only all the buttons and menus on your camera but also will help you gain a firm understanding on how to create images that match what you saw with your mind’s eye. Check that out here.

Cover to the book Get the Picture: A Photographer's Gude to Essential Camera Skills.

 

If you’re not feeling ready for that book, check out my article, “A Beginner’s Guide to Learning Photography.”

 

WHAT CAMERA OR LENS SHOULD I BUY?

None of us are made of money, so learning to spend your money wisely and on gear that will genuinely transform our images for the better is crucial!

First and foremost, I would want you to understand that spending money on lenses is far more important than spending your hard earned dollars on the latest camera body. Cam

And the first lens I would recommend you get is the 50mm 1.8 lens.
Take a look at that lens here: NikonCanonSony

This incredible little lens is lightweight, inexpensive (when compared to other quality lenses), and fast. By shooting with this lens, it will take your images from alright to awesome.

To see all of the gear I recommend, take a look at my Gear Guide.

HOW CAN I GET SHARP IMAGES?

Such a great questions, one that I struggled with in the past as well! In general, the two leading causes of blurry images are:

  • shutter speed is too slow
  • depth of field is too shallow

With shutter speed, I would recommend not letting the shutter speed drop below 1/150th of a second. By keeping the shutter speed above this number, you should be able to remove any camera shake that may be costing you sharpness.

To learn more about shutter speed, check out my article, “The Ultimate Guide to Learning Shutter Speed.”

The other common issue that causes blurry images is that the depth of field is too shallow. A good rule of thumb is to never shoot at an f-stop smaller than the number of people in the image. For example, if you are shooting a group of 5 people, shoot at f5.6 or above. By following this tip, you will make sure that everyone in the group is sharp in the image.

To learn more about Aperture and F-stop, take a look at my article, “A Beginners Guide to Understanding Aperture.”

Another great article to read on the subject is, “Ten Tips for Getting Sharp Images Every Time.”

CAN YOU HELP ME LEARN EDITING?

Editing is so essential to photographer’s today; your images just aren’t finished unless they have been edited.

Adobe Lightroom is the application that most photographer’s use to accomplish the majority of their image editing. Sure Photoshop is great, but only for the more advanced edits like head swaps or background changes.

Ninety-nine percent of all edits can and should be done in Lightroom. To learn more about the power of Lightroom, check out my article, “The Basics of Lightroom,” and when you’re ready to dig in and learn the software, my course, “Lightroom Hero Quick Course,” will get you editing like a pro in three hours.
