You don’t have to be an expert in photography to take great good photographs. The creative mind in the application of your shots is essential. You don’t always need a digital SLR to excel in photography. A simple point and shoot camera can itself satisfy your needs. The point and shoot cameras are light and easy to handle. You can move around these types of camera anywhere at any time. You can always enjoy the lens of the self shoot camera like the digital SLR. You can enjoy taking pictures using the low contrast camera in light conditions without any modification.
The other thing that I found amazing was portrait photography tips were suitable for wedding photography business too.
This book Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera by Ron Schick will give you tips on portrait photography and wedding photography to use the simple camera with more pride. Most of these cheap and light cameras come with a built in flash. This will be the primary light source for the camera. The usage of flash for the light set up is another area of interest in the book. You can also bring use of the ambient light if you are feeling so. The tips for setting ambient light are also another point of discussion.
The creation of better looking photos has to do a decent incorporation of thoughts. Usage of decent equipment for photography can of course make the process make a bit easy. But it seldom changes the idea behind. So you always take some moment to think about what you are going to shoot before making it. Even a novice and a person with non artistic talents can take good photos using a point and shoot camera if he has thinking head above the shoulder.
