Photography is the way of art to create durable image by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation. Now a days we are very familiar with digital photography.

For snapping a shot ,a photographer should give attention on three thing: Lighting, solid visual composition and interesting perspective on subject. When approach a shot you will have to consider whether you will take a portrait(vertical) or landscape(Horizontal) orientation. For nature photography, most of the photographers take landscape, but there is no hard and fast rule that you have to take landscape view for nature photograpy,its totally depends on the view. But one thing is very important here that for being a photographer there is no alternative of practice.
