Travel and photography goes hand in hand and travel is exactly what got me into the world of photograpy and videography. Never in years I thought I would get so passionate about photography and now that I have stepped into the world of this beautiful art form, I am realising how cryptic and vast the subject really is.
So first of all, hats off to all the self-taught photographers, video makers and editors -- this art is difficult to grasp and master and it surely takes years and thousands of hours of deliberate practice.
Some of the topics I think which needs to be mastered in photography are:
- Camera basics
- Different types of Cameras
- Aperture - Basics, when to use low aperture or situations when large aperture has to be chosen
- Focal Length - how does different focal length affects the subject and background in a photograph
- Shutter Speed
- Many more to be added.
So what's focus really? What is it so important about focus that it needs to be mastered? How to build/ develop an eye for detail and how to gauge the different levels of focus - from razor sharp to blurred/ out of focus subject?
We will attempt to dive into all the topics which hopefully would make us an excellent amatueur photographer (for the starters!)
