If you are planning to get a DSLR, the lens is the main deal breaker and hence you should invest in a good one. The best part is that with photography you can buy tools one at a time. For example, you can start without extra lights and a tripod, then finally buy them. 

Understand your camera

Understand all about your camera. In the current age, there is YouTube that can give you so many tutorials on different things. 

The right niche 

With photography, most of the time you will have a certain niche that you concentrate on. It depends on your interest and what best moves you. Once you decide on your target niche, then you can learn more about the niche and how to best do your photography. 


Photography just like any thing else is an endless learning journey. You need to start with the basics such as the relation between ISO, speed and aperture. Then you need to learn of the different exposures and how to try different angles. With that mastery and practice, you will be perfect. You also need to visit different photography blogs and study different pictures until you find how to create an edge. 


Practice makes perfect and hence the more you practice the better you become. Take that shot and next time try to make the shot you are taking better than your previous. If you are dedicated in your practice you will become great in no time. 


Even though you may take the best pictures, you may need editing to make it even perfect. Editing depends on what you are trying to achieve. It can be subtle or very complicated. Make sure you learn about editing. Learn to use the different editing software’s such as Adobe photoshop. 

The best thing about photography it is something you can learn on your own and become perfect.
