3 Ways to Get Into Photography After you see a 3-D movie, you start to notice the three-dimensional quality of the world around you. In a similar way, after you take a photograph of someone, you notice many subtle aspects of their face that you previously took for granted. Photography, then, is about emphasizing reality, making what is real more obvious.  Moreover, the value of this reality is enhanced over time when it no longer exists. Only a few of us, for example, were around in July of 1950 during a Cape Canaveral launch, but NASA photographers make us feel we witnessed the event for ourselves. While many people think of photography as just another artistic pursuit, it’s far more. While a sketch or painting is an interpretation of reality, photography reflects reality as it is. The fact that a photographer finds an interesting expression to capture on someone’s face or an interesting play of light and shadows in a landscape does not make it any less real. For these and other reasons, it’s easy to grow discontent with simply snapping a picture with your smartphone. You begin to wonder if it's possible to capture an image with more care and precision, from a better angle or a clearer perspective. If you’re feeling this artistic discontent and wondering about these kinds of questions, then maybe you should think about learning technical things like an f-stop or artistic things like the rule of thirds. Here are three steps you can take to learn how to become a better photographer, taking it up as a hobby or a profession. 1. Read about photography The easiest way to learn about photography is to read books about photography.  You’ll see plenty of photographs to understand the qualitative differences between images, find out about the history of photography, and learn about the lives of famous photographers.  After you’ve read a few books, then you may want to sign up for a few photography blogs and subscribe to a few photography magazines.  Reading books and blogs and magazines about photography will introduce you to this fascinating world. You will immerse yourself in art and creativity. 2. Practice what you learn Immersing yourself in the technical and artistic aspects of photography will inspire you. It will be impossible to resist trying out many of the ideas that you'll learn.  By taking more photographs, you will deepen your understanding, and you may even come up with your own methods for taking better pictures. Once you energize the creative aspects of the mind, it’s difficult to predict how your reality will change. 3. Take classes in photography Reading about photography and practicing the art will not satisfy your curiosity; instead, it will only stoke the fires of inquiry. You will want to know the answers to questions that will not be easy to find. For example, what type of camera should you buy and what type of software should you use? While, of course, you can always ask Google, sometimes you would rather hear directly from someone who has had years of experience share their insights. Besides supplementing your knowledge, classes in photography will do something else for you—they will end your feeling of loneliness. Humans are wired to be social creatures and our favorite people are always people like us. So, when you become a photographer you will want to join the tribe of photographers, other people who feel just as passionately about portraits and landscapes and still life images.  When you join a photography class online or offline, you will find mentors and friends, and you will learn things that you never read about before. While, of course, you can simply stick to enjoying the convenience of online classes on how to become a better photographer, you should try an effort to join a live class. You may not be able to follow a live lecture as closely as a video tutorial, but what you will benefit in many other ways from rich human interactions.  In the final analysis, the more you delve into photography, the more you’ll appreciate the nature of reality and the nuances of perception.
