Guides and Resources

Beginner Guide To A Proper Exposure! Leave Auto!This is mainly for beginner-grade DSLR's, but can be translated into the professional models as well. I do recommend that you learn on something cheap first. That way you will learn to take the best shots you possibly can without having to rely on extra features. Once you figure out the type of photography that you wish to produce, you can upgrade to fit your needs. I will create a guide for picking out the right DSLR for you later.
Here is an exposure meter. See the big dot in the middle?

How to photograph: Lightning and StormsHow To Photograph

Series 2. Lightning and Storms
Photographing lightning and storms can be very fun, but also very dangerous! Not only for you, but also for your equipment. With this guide you will learn how to photograph lightning safely and efficiently. 
Equipment that you will need.

A camera. Preferably a DSLR, but anything that allows you to control your shutter speed will work.A wide angle lens. Whether it's a zoom or a prime, something between 10mm and 30mm is usually the best.A tripod. You will need a sturdy tripod since you will be doing long exposures. A sturdy tripod prevents camera shake.A neutral density filter if needed. Long exposures will let a lot of light into your sensor, the best way to prevent this is by using ND filters.Proper clothing. Storms usually mean rain. Have a rain jacket or poncho ready.Remote shutter release.
How to photograph: Waterfalls and StreamsHow To Photograph

Series 1. Waterfalls and Streams

Photographing waterfalls and streams can be one of the most rewarding experiences for a photographer. Nothing beats the soothing sound of running water from mother nature herself. Well, maybe the sound of rain on a tarp tent, but that guide is for another day. haha

1.) If the composition isn't good and there are a lot of distractions, a tip that I had received when first starting out was to look though the viewfinder as if it was the final print. Having that sort of mentality should help you improve in your compositions. 
2.) Look at the subject in the photo. Is it interesting? Is it of something that everyone makes a photo of? If you're not liking your photo because of the subject, it may either be not interesting or is interesting, but with bad composition.
3.) Bad lighting. An underexposed photo will almost al
