You’ve just taken a few photos and it looks good, but you don’t have a clue what you’re doing.

I’m sure you’ve found a lot of tips here, but what do you need?

I’m here to help.

So, let’s get started.

If you’re new to photography, I’ll start with the basics. 

You don’t need a ton of gear, you don�t need any special equipment.

You don�s just want a camera, a tripod, a flash, and a tripod stand.

If that’s the case, then the first step is to get your camera ready. 

Here are some helpful tips to get you started:1. 

The best photo tripod to buy is a good one.

A tripod is a really nice piece of kit for any photographer, but it’s really hard to find one that fits the budget and is a reliable one.

The ones that are easy to find are the ones that have a metal mount, like the D-mounts for example, but they are only about $25. 

A lot of people use cheap, plastic ones. 

They can get you a little bit of the look of a camera mount, but not quite as good. 


Get a tripod that is adjustable.

A lot of these have a ring on the bottom that will help you adjust the position of the camera. 

It also helps to use a small tripod stand that can support your weight and help it stay on your tripod. 


Find the right light.

If it�s a light that is well suited to your location, I recommend something with a higher focal length than the one you have at home.

If not, you can always get a bigger one if you can afford it. 4. 

Set up your flash.

This is the big one.

I find it’s easier to use my tripod for macro shots because it allows me to see what I�m shooting and not worry about getting a bad angle. 

I like to use an old tripod with a lot more than the maximum aperture, like a 40x30x50.

I use it to take pictures of people, pets, birds, and even flowers. 


Choose your camera mount.

For a good portrait or landscape shot, I like to have a tripod mount that has a good view of the landscape. 

This helps me get the right angle for my camera and my subject.

If I have a good angle, I can use a tripod with my flash to capture those details. 


Use a tripod arm.

This will help keep the camera stable on your subject, and help you get the shot. 


Try your camera lens.

You can use one that’s compatible with the lens you’re using.

If your camera is a DSLR or mirrorless camera, you could consider getting a lens mount. 


Check out the lighting.

If the lighting is good, you should be able to get decent pictures. 


Adjust the flash.

You should also try your camera light up to get more light on your subjects.

You want to have enough light to create the right depth of field for your subject. 


Put on some flash filters.

A light-emitting diode (LED) filter can add some extra depth of image. 


Pick a focal length.

If there is a specific focal length that you prefer, like 35mm or f/2.8, try a longer lens to get the best light on a subject.

A longer lens allows you to capture the depth of the background without having to shoot through your subject to get an angle.

If all of this sounds daunting, that�s ok. 

To get started, here are some quick tips for finding the right lens:12. 

Grab a tripod.

If a tripod is hard to get, just ask a friend to help you out.

If they don�ll help you, you might just have to pay someone else. 


Learn how to use your camera.

This may sound like a really easy thing to do, but some of the best photos come when you get a great setup in place. 14. 

Don�t use a flash.

A flash is a great way to get some extra light on the subject, but if you want the best shot, you
