Tips on How to Become a Photographer

Hello Neighbors!

Many dream of becoming a photographer in Olive Branch, MS. It’s the opportunity to combine technology with artistry to create something memorable and unique. Yet there’s so much more to photography than clicking on a button. You’re required to understand the equipment and the best techniques for capturing a picture. For advice on how to become a quality photographer, follow these tips.

Get Educated

If you have a camera already, be sure you know how to work it backwards and forwards. Consult your instruction manual for more info on your model. If you want to learn how to adjust the aperture and work other features on your camera, have someone experienced show you how to do so. It’s also advised to read books that touch on how to operate cameras. It might also be beneficial to subscribe to photography magazines. Look at what others have accomplished and note the techniques that they might have used. Visit websites and art exhibits to get a feel for each prominent photographer’s work. If you’re serious about becoming a photographer, enroll in a few photography classes. Also attend workshops and seminars on photography. To gain the best education, apply for a full-time photography program at a college or university.


Part of being an artist is practicing. Take your camera with you everywhere you go and take every opportunity to snap photos. Try experimenting from different angles and applying various settings. If you’re using a digital camera, take one photo after the other and then weed out the shots you don’t really care for. Also experiment with photo editing programs with the photos you like. These experiences will help you develop a better eye for photography. Show your stuff to other people who can provide constructive feedback on your work. You can post your photos on a blog and allow others to look at it and critique your pictures. Consider submitting your pieces to art competitions. The more you put yourself out there, the more you’ll get back. Be sure you keep all this in mind as you seek to become a photographer in Olive Branch, MS.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
