Photography Lessons: I.

Hi lovely people!
Today I made a special post for you, just a bit of tips for new photographers! (like me :)

Lets begin, 
For taking better pictures you should have a good camera, not too expensive, but a good camera. I am in love with my camera, I take almost all the pictures of the blog with this one:
Canon EOS-1

It is kind of old, but still works perfectly! 
Another thing you should have in mind is the focus of your picture:

While taking the photo the item you want to capture should look clear and neat; if not, the background would be the focused one and your image will look weird.

The light is another important fact for taking better pictures. I highly recommend to take pictures when the sun is giving a really soft light, If you take it when there is too much light the image will have darker shades; this make the image look sort of ugly.
Your position in respect from the object you want to photograph is something really important too. If you take the picture with the sun behind you, the image will look well:
But if you take the picture with the Sun in front of you, with or without a dog; the picture will look bad:
The best way is the one with a soft natural light that come from on side:

In this post I didn't use any special editor for the photos' look.

Some vocabulary you should learn:

Exposure: How bright or dark your image will look.
Contrast: The difference of light and dark between the components of the picture. 
Saturation: How bright the colors will look in your picture.
Temperature: How warm or cold the colors of the picture will look.
Tint: The color of the image.
Sharpness: How clear or blurry a picture is.
