There are many incredible photography techniques for beginners. I will present five of them in this article.

Black and white photography

It’s extremely easy to transform a color picture to black and white, yet the result can be very impactful.

You can easily do this using software such as Adobe Photoshop.

Motion blur photography

Motion blur photography is a technique that can be used to create a sense of speed in the picture or create cool light streaks. Although some of these effects can be achieved in Photoshop, you often get a better result doing it “the real way”.

The trick here is to put your camera on a tripod and use a long shutter speed together with a closed aperture or ND filters.

Some ideas you might want to try out:
– Taking pictures of the cars on the highway (which will give you some cool light streaks from the front and rear lights of the cars).
– Taking pictures of waterfalls (this will make the water look like smoke)

Macro photography

I have to warn you; macro photography is addictive and will make you see the world from a completely new perspective. All you need is a macro lens and a keen eye for details.

Using macro lenses, you will be able to get extremely close to the subject and reveal details that you previously couldn’t see. You can take close ups of insects or make some really abstract images by taking pictures of everyday items.


HDR stands for high-dynamic range and can create some stunning and sometimes surreal images. The most common techniques is to take 3 identical images with different exposures and then transforming it into a HDR image on the computer.

The result can often be that you get pictures where both the sky and ground is equally exposed. It doesn’t look very realistic, but it can produce some extremely interesting pictures.

Panoramic photography

A panoramic photo is usually made from several photos that are put together into one wide image. This technique is commonly used in landscape photography, but also has other applications.

You can use Photoshop to create a panoramic picture, and it’s especially easy with version CS5 or later.
