Ever had a hard time using your point-and-shoot camera? Or wonder how to take a great photo even without the use of a professional camera?
Last weekend, I went to Batangas to have a photoshoot with my friends. Aenje, my girlfriend, who doesn't know much about photography, used a point-and-shoot camera to to take photos behind the scenes as I gave her some tips to achieve the photos she wanted.
People often have the misconception that the more expensive your camera is, the better your shots will be. Another misconception is that people think that buying a DSLR camera will always produce a better shot. This might be true sometimes, but for me, it is not the price of the camera, but knowing how to use your camera to its fullest potential and using the right settings for each shot.
My favorite camera mode when using a point and shoot is the "P mode." Using this mode lets you adjust some settings on your camera, which is still beginner-friendly.
Here are some tips to get the most out of your point and shoot camera.
