Interest in photography is increasing, and this has created a glut of newbies who are confused about how best to improve their photography skills. Anyone can take a photo, but to take great photos you need the right skills. Read on for some great photography tips.
Portrait photography – To improve the quality of your picture, decrease the distance between your camera and your subject. Getting closer eliminates backgrounds that are disruptive, and better frames the subject. It also has added benefit of capturing facial expressions which can add a whole new element to the picture. Small details such as the unique colors in your model’s eyes, or an adorable dimple are often lost when you are too far away.
Keep your trigger finger ready at all times. If you take too long, you’ll never get the perfect shot you envision. Your subject might run away or change position so that the moment you wanted to capture gets lost. It is better if your camera takes pictures quickly.
Do not try to be unique all the time. You will not lose your status as a good photographer if you take some classic looking shots. Learn to make the difference between what is art and what is not. Do not edit your basic pictures of your friends to make them look artsy.
Portraits of a Man
Make your subject more comfortable by introducing some kind of a prop. Give a lady a flower to play with or a man a football. Give a bride and groom some bubble gum and have them blow bubbles together. You do not really have to include the prop in the frame in some cases but there may be shots that work out well with them.
Portraits of a woman
Do things that you would otherwise think to be crazy. Put a small child in an adult size fireman’s boots, hat and coat. Throw a woman in a pool with floating flower petals wearing a gorgeous wedding gown. These photos are sure to catch the attention of the passing eye and likely captivate the viewer.
Implement these ideas into every one of your photography sessions and you will soon see them improving. The only way to benefit from the advice in this article, is to put it into practice. (Interest in photography is increasing).
