Digital SLR photography hints and tips for beginners and amateurs.


Listed below are a few useful tips for those photographers progressing from a point and click camera to a digital SLR (also known as DSLR) camera.

1. Don't throw your camera manual away. It will become your new best friend. Read it as often as possible, especially in the first couple of months after purchasing your DSLR camera. Always store it somewhere handy. For example in your camera bag.

2. Buy a UV filter for each lens you own. It's easier to replace a scratched lens filter than it is to replace your actual lens.

3. Learn to use all your SLR camera settings. Even those you don't think you'd ever use.
Practise changing settings like ISO, aperture and shutter speed, so you know them like the back of your hand. A moving animal won't sit and pose until you work out your settings.

4. In addition to UV filters, other important pieces of equipment should include a sturdy tripod and a remote release. They both come in handy for taking photographs that require long shutter speeds. For example night photography or slow motion water.

5. You can never have enough SLR / DSLR photography magazines and books to learn from. The best ones will explain what camera settings were used, along with each photograph displayed.

6. Don't touch or blow on the mirror inside your camera body when you have the
lens off. If you damage the sensor, you may as well buy another camera body, because
that's how much it will cost to fix. If you notice spots appearing in your photos, buy a cleaning kit or dust blower from your local camera store. Many now have an inhouse cleaning service which is always a good alternative.

7. Don't change your lens outside if it's windy. Put the main lens on your camera before you leave the house. If you need to change the lens outside, face the camera body downwards. Dust can't fall upward onto the camera's sensor.

8. If at first you find your getting a lot of blurred photo's, change to a fast shutter speed. The faster the photograph is taken, the less chance there is of it being effected by camera shake. Holding the camera closer to your body or resting it on a nearby.
