Venues play a significant role in making an ordinary party a success. If you choose the right venue for your party half of the battle is won. There are various things one has to keep in mind while choosing a venue. Some of these points have been discussed below.

Now for the fun part! Time to shop! My advice would be to just start with the basics. What you need depends on the type of photography you will be doing. Be sure to purchase some back up equipment as well, because if something breaks you don’t want to be without any options. As you make more money with your business, you can upgrade and add to your equipment, so don’t feel like you need to “have it all” to start out. Don’t forget about office supplies, a good computer, printer, business cards and other marketing materials, etc.

One good idea for inexpensive lessons is to come up with a small group, look for a place that do not require any fees such as parks and is not out of town or too far for cheap commute, utilize the whole day, and talk to a great photographer who is willing to teach for free or small fee that you and your other buddies can share. I have seen some of my friends do this thing on a regular basis. They even hire models where they also spilt the fee.

Street Ronald Reagan Building Washington DC event photographers for me is the most amazing way beginners can really get going with their photography. There is just so much to shoot and your choices are endless. It is great for photo outings in a group because there is something for everyone on the streets. It gives you freedom to shoot anything and everything within the limits of the law and human courtesy. If it moves shoot and if it doesn’t, shoot it.

The drawbacks to a course like this is that you are forced to pay large sums of money for the “Credits” and getting your degree in event photography. For those that aren’t as concerned with a degree, a cheaper and, in my opinion, better way to learn, is to find various online photography courses and learn the most you can from each.

The “nifty 50” or 50mm prime lens has traditionally found itself to be the workhorse of many professional photographers. It is offered as a 50mm f/1.4 and is well suited for portraiture and documentary work. This lens gives beautiful color saturation and intense rich blurring, or bokeh, outside of its narrow depth of field. The professional series offers a maximum aperture of f/1.2. Use this lens for close portraiture, and interior detail photography. In low light situations this lens excels at stopping the action, but be aware that the small depth of field may cause focus issues in rapidly changing subjects as they move outside of its small range.

Although successful, the Daguerrotype had limitations. One was that it was a bit expensive and it wasn’t possible to create duplicates. So somewhere along the lines of history, the Calotype was introduced and has proven to be a tough competitor. William Henry Fox was the inventor of the Calotype. He is also the inventor responsible for producing the first negative in the year 1835. His method continued to improve in quality. By 1840, Talbot used the method to publish a photo book in 1844. The rest, as they say, is history!
