Photography, a beginners Guide
After a recent pool i had, it seems like people miss more tutorials and guides to photography.
So i am gonna give it my best and make this easy and hopefully helpful.
No absolute answer to everything, but things from my point of view, including some facts.
Advanced facts that sounds sexy will not be included here, Mostly because you don`t need that information to take great photos.
But i will give you url to all the major subjects so that you can read in-depth about them.
First things first, you gonna need a camera, the question on everyones lips is; What camera should i get?
Whats with the freaking megapixels? what is a dslr?
A digital camera/Point and shoot, does not give you the opportunity to change lenses.
Meaning, that the zoom and usability of the lens is as it is.
That does not make it horrible, but for photographers who work with Macro and wildlife photography, that requires a zoom and a magnification that a point-and-shoot c

Do-it-Yourself Photography Studio
Photography equipment is expensive, I think everyone knows that.  Basically with any bit of equipment you could usually buy a good point-and-shoot camera. And same goes with the studio gear. If you're planning to make a home studio with "official" gear you could easily end up spending several thousand dollars. But on the other hand, you can easily get started with far less expensive setup if you're willing to use gear that is not meant for photography.
This article gives you few examples what you could actually use as studio gear, how to use them, and if necessary, how to build them. I will share you my experiences on how different things have worked for me. These aren't only options, just some examples. With some creativity you can probably think of better gear for some specific jobsm than I have. Just remember one princible: there are no style points given for the setups. If it's outside the frame, it doesn't matter how DiY it looks as long as it gets the job done.
