Photography requires more training than any other artistic pursuit, but it is very rewarding. You do not have to be a photography expert from a young age, but you have to be open minded and have the will to learn new things.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to hold the camera in its regular horizontal position when snapping photos. Shooting your photographs at a vertical angle can really add a unique prospective to your pictures. Zoom in for dramatic effect, and zoom out for head-to-toe shots.
Indoor florescent lighting scenes will require white balance adjustments. Blue and green light is usually given off by fluorescent lights, so subjects of your photos might take a tone cooler than you intended, unless you compensate with the red tones.
You should create depth and perspective when photographing landscapes. Get a sense of scale by having a person or object placed in the foreground. Aperture sizes like f/8 on a consumer camera, or f/16 on a professional DSLR, make it so you need not sacrifice foreground sharpness for background sharpness or vice-versa.
Getting a good shot in low levels of light can get a little hairy, since these shots have tendencies towards blurriness. Ensure your hands are very steady when taking a photo in low light. You may even want to rest them on something as you take a picture. Using a tripod for this would be even better.
Have you ever needed to take photos of subjects that were rained on? You can create a similar effect by using a spray bottle to gently mist the object with water.
Create an interesting silhouette. While most people use the sunset to create a silhouette, there are other methods. If your background is much brighter than your subject, you’ll notice a silhouette forming. To create a perfect silhouette, you can either use a off camera flash in back of the subject or the subject can be placed by a window that is bright. Just keep in mind that the outline may cause an unflattering feature on your subject to be highlighted.
