Start with the best books on photography, a huge number of the web (links to fishing spots do not give, they are removed here). And there are a lot of sites on which articles are widely covered a variety of issues related to the process. For example, a series of articles on the site photocell. pv . And practice, practice, practice. The main thing is to try to improve every step of the process - photography and working with the camera as a tool to (RAW, particular focus, exposure, depth of field sharply series) plus the work on the subject (the book to help), then the image processing in the converter and its subsequent printing, and then it is useful to add to the processing in Photoshop and print again (or seaming images on DVD as a slideshow with a program like Magix Photos - if you want you can always print a picture from a disc worthy of a paper incarnation) - the main thing, to continuously work was carried out with the images - and then, if the bear on the eye as a child did not come, the quality will improve with each approach - can upload photos to the network for the exchange and discussion, which is also nice and helpful, plus a desire pokreativit. . Well, something like that, in general

07.06.2009 20:53:00
I give my imho.
first learn the rules of composition (the golden section). I would call it the rule 1/3 say Horizon 1/3 from the top of the frame or on the bottom of the frame. Girl on the third from the left edge of the frame or on the right.
Second, do not go into wide-angle filming. Try to shoot as much as possible in the area Lenses 50mm 35mm format. I would like to shoot wider agree. But try.
third on pinch strongly f2-f8 aperture 35mm cameras optimum.
fourth, sit like a summer afternoon on the lawn, and try to play with manual exposure compensation (exposure - aperture) removing the same perspective, to feel your camera. Consider then the images on the computer.
Fifth, try to catch interesting moments on the streets of evening. Grab human emotions, smiles. Do not be afraid of close-ups.
sixth. Print those pictures that appear to be successful. Only the computer screen is not enough. As the skill discard those that do not like. So you will formirovatsya your portfolio. Browse it periodically.

and seventh most important Do not listen to anyone's advice - to develop your style.

07.06.2009 20:54:00
- But something of the third part of the book was not posted - I wonder what is the hidden meaning - that the average reader is anyone fascinated by the intricacies of the process displays images from photographic plates to the third part will not come?

07.06.2009 21:10:00
Thank you to everyone for the tips! I will try While all this for me - the dark forest But I try to practice - yesterday and today with his wife walked around the city - I fotografirovl And today my pictures, for some reason, like more than yesterday.
law - the practice of course important, but more to learn how to use the camera

07.06.2009 21:20:00

Learning to use the camera easier than ever: carefully read the instructions
But learn to photograph a bit more complicated, if only because that is the primitive book of photos on the volume more than the camera manual. A
Mikulin read! About megapukseli shmatritsy and there, but about photographing pretty informative. The truth will have to include head and substitute "matrix" instead of "photographic emulsion"

07.06.2009 21:33:00

carefully read the instructions

I read some days While little is understood


A Mikulin read!

Now download and start

:

In the seventies of the last century, I read my first book on the photo: V. Mikulin "book for amateurs"
Similarly, but I it was precisely these "25 lessons".


and something of the third part of the book there is not lined
not noticed. . . But in the network, this book is laid out in hundreds of places.

IMHO, besides the above, it is necessary to go to the Resources type www. photosight. ru , see what's what, to analyze why some photos for you are beautiful, others - no, to decide on a favorite genre, select a photo and easier to try to do something similar.
addition to this article, you will gather the basic terminology and the technical component tsifrosemki. Realizing what settings affect what is possible to start the composition, light and so forth.

What to look for in the construction of scenes?

"Questions composition - a little developed area of ​​photographic art.
We gave here are some tips gleaned from practice, individual examples.
Every amateur photographer looking to improve is to aggressively acquire composition techniques. It will more successfully than the more demanding amateur photographer will treat their filming, creative look, the closer it will be considered by Soviet photographers. Much can be gained from picking the best pictures cut from magazines and newspapers.

very instructive introduction to the composition of the paintings of the classics and major contemporary artists-realists when visiting art museums and exhibitions of painting. "
(a quote from 16 lesson in the above book ). I just wanted to add that a lot of examples of good composition is in the movies, where the operators' brooms do not knit "- just recently, for example, looked at the domestic thriller" Brownie "- so there's no scene is a good picture of the composition and, in general, content. .

When upon a time, buying a first SLR, and I have been a period of dissatisfaction in the beginning, shall we say, business. Let me ask a question, and why did you decide that Pictures taken out not very successful in every sense . So you get them something to compare and contrast. What do you not like about your pictures? I think you first need to answer specifically on this question for yourself. Most likely you will get two sets of facts: Appliances (blur, black background, overexposure and m.) And the content of the image (harmony, composition etc). If the first group of facts is easy (relatively) fix, after purchasing the lens better external flash and. , The second group will be corrected for a long time with experience.

From tips - shoot in RAW, forget about the automatic mode (well, except that except in cases when you need something quickly remove). Three manual modes zaglaza enough for any occasions (M - for building inside, Av - people leisurely shooting outdoors, Tv - sport, transient events).

10.06.2009 10:16:00
I would do a little wrong. First, let's examine the "basics of the basics":

1. The concept of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO sensitivity (ISO). Exposure value. The concept of "stop." White balance.
2. The Golden Section. Crop. Basics of composition.
3. ogre control and the possibility of a specific camera (in this case D60 - User, articles, reviews). RAW-format.

Find it all in a concise and can be in the form of chёtkom intrnet. Properly advised article "Picture reasonable" Afanasenkova.

all items do not need to dig a ton of information - will go head around. You just need to understand what is the diaphragm that it gives, what affects it and how to change the D60. The same in terms of shutter speed and ISO.

concept of volumetric composition as that of his entire book written. Therefore, you just need to understand what is the rule of thirds (golden section). To begin with is not bad.

And only then read "serious" books. Books (IMHO) very often have a significant drawback - a lot of text, a lot of "water" and a little practical advice. Newcomers also, in fact, need something like manuals, where short and syano described the most basic.

10.06.2009 10:43:00

+1
proper book.

10.06.2009 12:17:00

quote:
a lot of text, a lot of "water"
also agree. Most of the books begins the story from afar and about all distractions.
I remember once at a photo exhibition on Krasnaya Presnya, in the 98th distributed free seems minoltovsky bukletik where literally 10 pages was described almost everything you need, and even a picture. It is a pity not survived, but it would be scanned and posted.

Here on the formulation of light is very competent edition. But they are focused on spices, they "water" read once.

10.06.2009 12:44:00

where literally 10 pages was described almost everything you need
do not know how in the manual Nikon and canon in a manual almost anything, in my opinion, need to start really summarized. The truth is not 10 pages, and Pobol. Collated all modes when and how to use them, with examples.
Statement, however, requires knowledge of basic terminology, so it is worth to begin with Afanasenkova. And then
detail fotikom in hand and the practical trial to study manual snapshots. Theory without practice manual all at once in my head will not keep - the roof will go.

10.06.2009 12:52:00

to Nikon manual too bad. You just have to read, you can even 2 times
 

10.06.2009 12:54:00

agree. Manuals to the cameras is also very sensible across.

10.06.2009 13:17:00
And in my opinion - a simple desire to understand - is enough. Everything else - is very fast.

Even without all sorts of books - by asking specific questions in a forum (at least here, at least in any of the photos) - can very quickly understand what's what, at least in technical terms.

All these "advised the book" - in my opinion, more out of laziness. People think that they would give him something that's kind of the same "bukletik three pages", which, after reading the full zero - will be able to shoot at shYdevry masters.

And really - the experience and the desire to understand what is happening and why. . .

All data are tips - right. But, in my opinion, to the Board each beginner should "grow." For example, the concept of "aging" - it is true, however, to ask about it - you must submit, how the shutter. And to imagine how the gate - should be how to construct the camera. And each of these "steps", in my view, must also be "prepared" human desire to understand what was happening and practice.

10.06.2009 13:24:00
But now more and more manuals in the form of zlektronnom.

10.06.2009 13:58:00

All these "advised the book" - in my opinion, more out of laziness. People think that they would give him something that's kind of the same "bukletik three pages", which, after reading the full zero - will be able to shoot at shYdevry masters.
Nobody of any shYdevrah after reading the manual does not say. Just without the knowledge of basic terminology are new even to formulate the question properly 9 or understand the answer) can not.

Well, let's ask how to shoot portraits. He will tell the DF preferably from 85mm, aperture open wider, lower the ISO, WB and white sheet and so on. N. And he answered - and how to open the aperture, and that such risk factors / BB?

can not learn to read / write without knowledge of letters (ie without passing through the primer). You can not learn how to make meaningful images (not a masterpiece, but just normal shots) without understanding what the diaphragm and how it affects the depth of field (for example).

therefore start with the basics. Definitely. Even pros shYdevralnye once started with the basics. But the rapid development of the basics better not take tolmut hundreds of pages (the book), but something more concise / visual. Article Afanasenkova, manual to the camera, and so on. N.

PS. As far as the desire here IMHO even mention should not be - once a person begins to understand, if he wants to learn / understand - it means the desire is .

10.06.2009 14:05:00

well said!
I have a question - and the people voobshe read the FAQ? (About the documentation to the camera, and I'm not saying

Personally, I'm in the - highly uncertain. Since I have three friends who periodically ignite the desire "to understand." However, after the first attempt for example brains conclude that "there is no time (the desire, opportunities, - underline)."

Moreover - here in the forum on a regular basis swaps topics scenario: rookie comes, asks him to buy, they say, wants to make "beautiful shYdevry" - and it is clear that there is a desire to understand. He was beginning to tell, and people kind of beginning to understand. . . Pretty soon comes to realize that the SLR with interchangeable lenses much better the most expensive compact. . . A few days later throws in the subject reported that he bought ultrazoom.

And where it is the "desire"? ? ?



All pigs FAQ's such posts.

Why? Just this - the question is quite normal.

There is a list - people want to choose the best.

mistake of asking only that he wanted to "throw off responsibility" on the other, so you had someone to blame when the photons will not give "shYdevrov"


11.06.2009 13:11:00
Author branches have not lost?

I would divide the problem into two: learn to shoot and learn to shoot SLR. It is run and sack races - two different kinds of sports.

Start-zerkalschika main problem - shake. Home Recipes - forget about the rule of "shutter speed = 1 / EGF" and remember the rule "extract = 1 / (5 * EGF)." And the camera to study until the simplest shooting mode will not be "M". This is about 10k frame (if you think in the interval between frames).

For novice photographer is very important to learn all the time to ask yourself the question "what I took, and why?" And after looking at the results, perekadrirovat, watching other people's photos and compare, compare. The pictures look very useful and try to shoot similar subjects. And from the books on the composition also will not be worse. While such that my heart lay, I have not yet read. This process kilokadrah not measured. Depending on a person: one, two, three. . . yet begin to understand their level and the way in photography.

11.06.2009 17:34:00

What do you not like about your pictures? I think you first need to answer specifically on this question for yourself. Most likely you will get two sets of facts: Appliances (blur, black background, overexposure and etc.)

Yes, while the technical parameters are not very satisfied. . . . and the most artistic part I study and practice it



1. The concept of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO sensitivity (ISO). Exposure value. The concept of "stop." White balance.
2. The Golden Section. Crop. Basics of composition.
3. ogre control and the possibility of a specific camera (in this case D60 - User, articles, reviews). RAW-format.

Similarly

way, a new question: what software for a beginner is more convenient for photo processing? Photoshop CS go? I have.
And: Nikon makes images more in the format NEF. What is this? They can be used for better processing?

,, direct links inundated All holidays will read!


11.06.2009 18:40:00

And: Nikon makes images more in the format NEF. What is this?

It's a great thing! RAW-files in the format of Nikon. Nikon have excellent native converter for this format, only one with it is already possible to obtain excellent results. In fact, a software "developer" and cataloger that allows you to roll up over time pictures, with the possibility at any time to return again to the sources, to something to correct, if needed.

and bundled software is a camera? And he paid / free? I remember when it was something that Nikon two-month (or whatever) completed the trial version - interesting, but as it is now?

11.06.2009 19:14:00

Like, everything is fine with the software from Nikon.

11.06.2009 20:02:00

Under Windows Photoshop is nothing better. And if there is no sense to Photoshop than others to learn to work. Additional opportunities get plugins.
the Mac has an alternative Aperture. Also a nice thing. Under
tsifrozadniki have Capture One, but it is possible with conventional camera down to work. Who used, he said famously.

Imho best combination of Photoshop Lightroom for cataloging and quick viewing / editing and Photoshop CS for serious work with a particular image.

12.06.2009 17:16:00

Photoshop CS

Well, then again, and put.

You what? How is it to throw? Already what I read here, in response to my questions, have greatly helped me - I knew where to begin. and you are about otvetstennost some say. . .

So - go ahead! Pictures, and try to understand why it turns out, anyway. When there is a failure to understand - to ask a specific question in the forum - be sure to get quite a specific answer, removing misunderstanding.

And - will succeed.
