Anne Geddes once said, “The best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed.” And to create such images, there are certain things one needs to be mindful of. After being thorough with the basics of photography, one needs to learn almost everything about the equipment being used and once both of them are clear, the first step towards professional photography is taken.
