Yes, you need to do a lot of practice in order to gain skills and experience to become a profession. But there are certain hacks which can make your way a lot easier and even cut short it to a certain extent.
#1. The Image Composition Is Crucial
The composition of a photograph is nothing more than the small objects that define your picture as a whole.
Now, many beginner photographers fail to understand this concept resultant to which their images lack that professional touch. Although, there are many other aspects playing role in this but the composition of the picture is one of the most important as well as the most neglected aspect.
Therefore, focusing on it is quite necessary.
Generally, the composition includes the type and placement of the small objects that define your picture. If you can be creative in this then surely your image can stand out from the crowd.
#2. Highlight Your Subject
If a photograph does not have a well-highlighted subject in it then the picture is completely worthless. Period.
Seriously, there is no point in checking out a picture if a normal random person can’t tell what it’s about. The subject is somewhat related to the composition of the picture. It is actually the major object of your picture and highlighting it is important so that it can be easily differentiated from the other minor objects of your picture.

#3. Focus On Focusing
Imagine looking at a picture that is completely out of focus. It surely will look dull, isn’t it?
The focus is the key in photography which can help you to either make it or break it.
A well-focused image will make it look sophisticated and more of professional quality and on the other hand, an out of focus image will be just awful to see. There are many things that will be needing your attention in order to set up an amazing focus.
For instance, what stays in the background as well as the foreground of the image will be playing a big role. Other than that the aperture, depth of field, shutter speed etc. will also be essential for setting up an optimal focus.
#4. Let There Be Light
Lighting is as important as setting up an optimal focus level in photography.
In fact, the whole idea of photography revolves around light. Different conditions demand different lighting conditions and if adjustment is not made according to the conditions then your photos will simply look unattractive and non-appealing.
#5. Test Different Concepts
A modern digital camera is preloaded with a lot of features especially if you are using a camera of a very high quality. Many photographers ignore this fact and often proceed with simple photography.
Although there is nothing wrong with this but using various concepts of photography that are already loaded up in your camera will just be a wiser decision.
Furthermore, it will help you get more familiarized with your camera and various photographic conditions which will ultimately lead to an increase in your skill level and knowledge.
