Photography Tips for Small Budget Beginners

I realized that at the beginning of my travel photography obsession, that was the same with me. I wasn’t really sure about what the heck I was doing either and the results weren’t really satisfying. The reason for that is simple – most of these tips and tricks articles tell you about aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and etc. They don’t tell you how to get the final result.

But what if you have only an iPhone? Also, next thing is that even if you have a camera, where you can adjust all that – the pics won’t be satisfying either. I know this from our own example – just check our Instagram.

So, I’ll simply try and do my best and walk you through my evolution and how I got to the level I’m right now, though there’s a long path ahead.

First of all, I’d say that there could possibly be one step and one step only and that is if you have a mentor. I was lucky enough to have my best friend already being into photography for quite some years, so he did gave me a lot of very useful tips and ideas, which helped a lot starting with finding the right camera and ending with helping me with editing and techniques.

But if your case is different and you’re the only one you know into this, I’m gonna walk you through three simple steps, that I went:

  1. Equipment
  2. Technique
  3. Editing Tools

I honestly hope, this would help some of you!

About P.

He is a friendly, but grumpy old man in a body of the 25 year old guy. If he is staying too long in one place, he starts to grumble that it is time to move, see other things. When he is finally on a move, he’s grumbling non-stop about that he has to move. The strangest thing in this behavior is that he does it with the smile on his face and constantly repeats that no one cheers him up more, than he himself. So, when you hear, or read that he enjoyed, or was astonished by a city, or beautiful nature’s spot – don’t consider if you should, or should not visit that place. You HAVE to go there.
