10 Ways to Explore Photography as a Beginner

The beauty of photography is that there are so many genres, techniques, styles, and philosophies that there is room for just about everyone to find a niche that suits them. If you are new to photography and wondering how to find your place in it all, check out this fantastic video tutorial that will show you 10 different ways you can explore your creativity with a camera.

Coming to you from Maria Perez with B&H Photo and Video, this fantastic video tutorial will show you 10 different ways to explore photography as a beginner. If I could give a piece of advice to a beginner looking to find their space in the creative world, it would be to not chase trends too much. There are so many ways to make an image, and if you give too much attention to things like portraits with narrow depth of field or the like, you risk falling into line with the masses instead of discovering what makes you tick. Of course, there is nothing wrong with inspiration and learning from others, but make sure those are also balanced by a healthy dose of experimentation. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Perez.
