PHOTOGRAPHY: HOW TO START?

Many people come looking for us with a lot of interest in photography. We always receive emails asking us to explain a little about the profession: what it is, colleges, courses, salary, degree of stability, areas of action, which equipment to buy to start etc. We believe that these are the most common doubts of those who want to study photography or work with photography. The best advice we have for you is: before you want to become a professional photographer, produce photos for pleasure and specialize.


First of all, we need to understand the meaning of a photographer. The photographer creates photographic images of events, people, landscapes, objects and other subjects, in black and white or colored, using cameras and accessories and develops graphic effects in images.


So if you want to become a photography professional, you need to have mastery over photographic cameras, lenses, films, techniques of developing and enlarging, treatment of analog and digital images, photometry, color theory, composition, framing, focus, lighting , among many others. In addition, the photographer needs to work on his creativity, his creative process, his critical sense, his artistic sensitivity and, especially, his look on the world.


Photography is an excellent career choice for anyone who wants to work with art and creativity. It is one of the few professional areas where age and college are not as important as a good photographic look, a quality product and self-discipline. But photography is a very competitive area, so it's important to prepare, develop a distinctive photographic look, perfect your technique, and create a jaw-dropping portfolio.


That's right, photography is a versatile area with a broad market of action, going from fashion and the arts to photojournalism and advertising photography. If you have always enjoyed shooting and want to bet on a more autonomous profession and with endless possibilities of work, photography is an interesting option.
