In my years of blogging, I have seen many bloggers (and Instagrammers and BookTubers) mention that they would like to become better photographers. Given my own experience in both photography and writing, it makes sense that I would write a series of how-to posts about the basics of photography.
But every time I sit down to write about it, I am stymied. What, exactly, are the basics of photography?
Sure, learning about aperture, shutter speed, and ISO (or ASA if you’re using a film camera) is vital, but what if your questions are more basic than that? Where do you start if you’ve never used a camera before, or if you just want to take better pictures with your smartphone’s camera?
To help me get past this roadblock, I’m going to turn this over to you. What questions, basic or not, do you have about photography? What would you like me to discuss when it comes to posts about taking better pictures for your blog, Instagram account, or candid family photos in general?
