The PhotoFuel.net Top 10 Photography Tips
PhotoFuel.net Top 10 Photography Tips. Our Tips will have you taking better photos instantly. These tips are quick and easy to implement and you'll see instant results, taking your photos from bland to grand in no time! So without further ado here are our Top 10 Tips:
Photography Tips: Tip 2 - Flash
Your cameras flash is not only for night time. You can use the fill flash during the day to further illuminate your subject, like if the sun is very bright and casting dark shadows onto your subject or when there is a lot of back light. Practice taking some shots with your flash off and them some with it on.
Photography Tips: Tip 4 - Composition
Just pushing the shutter release randomly could end up in some rather boring photos. Think about the composition of your photo before you take it. If you are photographing a person and want the photo to be intimate, fill the frame. Think about the rule of thirds, before you take your photo imagine a grid (like naughts & crosses or tic-tac-toe) across the frame. Place your subject at the intersections of those lines. Avoid shooting everything in the dead centre of the frame.
Photography Tips: Tip 6 - Hold Still
Shaky hands will leave your photos a bit blurry, for the best results, use a tripod. Your tripod doesn't need to be the best, most magnificent tripod in the world, it only needs to do what you can't, hold the camera perfectly still. Smaller tripods are great because they are much easier to carry around. Also, if you are never in any of your family photos because you are always behind the camera, now you can be included too by using the self-timer and a tripod.
Photography Tips: Tip 8 - Angles
Sometimes it's better to tilt your camera. It doesn't make sense to take a photo of a lovely tall tree with your camera in it's usual horizontal position, you'd have a lot of empty space on either side of the tree and would have to be quite far away to fit it all in. Try turning your camera vertically every now and again.
Photography Tips: Tip 10 - Don't be shy
When you are behind the camera, you need to take charge and be fearless. Don't be too shy to tell people how to move, or where to sit. Don't be afraid to take photos while you are out in public just in case you offend somebody. The worst thing that can happen is that somebody does take offence, then you apologise and delete the photo, in my experience though, this doesn't happen often. Pretend you are a photojournalist or a professional photographer, take charge and don't be shy!
