In this blog, I will be sharing some of the most valuable tips for budding photographers. While I was learning photography these points help me a lot.
Photography tips :
- Don’t buy Expensive camera
As a beginner, it is not logical to go and buy the most expensive/advanced camera. You should buy a simple camera that suits your type of photography. Get your photography basics clear and then buy a camera later according to your needs.
- Learn the basics
Basics are foundation of your knowledge and expertise. If you learn your basics, you can easily be an expert photographer.
- Get a Tripod :
Newbies often have shaky hands which can affect the quality of their photography. Buying a tripod allows you to take steady pictures at different setting and you don’t have to worry about the angle of your lens.
- Carry your camera :
Having a small camera that is portable allows you to carry it anywhere you go. Just keep it in your bag, backpack or purse.
- Make your list
Take time, sit down and think about things and places that you want to capture. This allows you to plan and achieve your goals in a better way.
- Don’t be judgemental
Photography is an art and every art has a different audience. So if you don’t understand a picture, don’t go on criticizing it. Learn how to respect and find meaning in another person’s work.
- Enjoy and Learn
If you love something then the learning process will be intriguing and fun. To get the best out of your photograph, it is important that you enjoy it. If you don’t love it then leave it and find a different passion.
- Self study
Try to teach yourself, research and learn from your mistakes. This will help you grow your photography skills. Browse the web, read blog and check out various video tutorials on photography.
- Camera setting
Often camera setting can play an important role in producing the perfect picture. Therefore, it is important that you try out and learn about different camera settings.
- Practices regularly
Practicing daily/regularly will allow you to brush up your photography skills. This will allow you to experiment and raise curiosity in your mind.
These are my advice for budding photographers. Please let me know your thought on this post and feel free to share your opinions and doubts.

It was a refreshing day next morning; it was our last day in Chennai since we planned to leave Chennai the next day. As I mentioned early there are a plenty of thing to offer in Chennai such as temples and mosques. When the guide mentioned about the thousand lights mosque in this place I was wondered why this name “thousand lights” came to this mosque. The curiosity in me incresed and we decide to visit this place which was not there in our list.
After a good bath and enticing breakfast which consists of pongal ( A special dish made of rice and moong dhal) and vadas and aromatic filter coffee from the restaurant we left for thousand lights.
It is a multi-domed beautiful mosque spreads over 3 acres located at Anna Salai in the middle of the city. This beautiful mosque is highly regarded for being the largest mosque in country. It was built in 1810 by Nawab Umdat-ul-Umrah. The assemble hall is very huge and around 1000 lamps are necessary to light the assembly hall hence the name thousand lights for the mosque. The mosque is constructed in medieval style architecture.
The enthralling beauty of the mosque is truly captivating and the multi-domes have heights of more than 64 feet from the ground. In 1981 another mosque was added which showcases the western influence in architecture for its five inward curving domes.
There are separate rooms both men and women for conducting prayers. The mosque is a holy place for Shiite Muslims and a famous pilgrimage centre for them. This huge holy construction is very famous for its beauty architecture and also has a great religious significance.
We explored the beauty of the mosque and took several photographs and moved to our last place the vgp universal kingdom which is an amusement park. I choose this place because I felt very hot and that could be the best remedy to escape from the scorching sun, where we could enjoy plenty of water games. It was great experience exploring this beautifully designed medieval styled structure.
