The better the quality, the better the photographer. It doesn't matter how many photos you take if they are all bad quality. 

Step 4 Get used to Camera Settings

Most cameras come with a lot of settings. They can decide the time of lighting perceived through them, the texture of the photo, and the overall appearance. Mess around with your first couple of shots and see what works best for you. There are also a lot of videos on Youtube for photography and how to go manual. Explore the world of photography and try some new things out. 

Step 5 Visit Some Classes

You can never stop learning in photography. It's a world of discoveries. Visiting Some classes and practicing what they teach will have a massive impact on the type of photographer you turn out to be. One of the best ways to be the most exceptional photographer is to learn from the best. Learn from ones who have already done what you are just starting. 

Step 6 Learn the Limits of Light

One of the most significant factors in the outcome of your photo is the lighting. Lighting can make or break your photo. Even the positioning of lights and the amount of light you let through your photo can change the entire outcome of your shot. Become familiar with lighting and what it does to your photo before you start in the field of photography.
