Have you been to a wedding lately? You will most likely see at least 60 small compact digital cameras with their amateur photographer behind them. Have you wondered what it takes to create a brilliant photograph?
Taking a great photograph isn’t as hard as you may possibly think. You don’t need the most costly digital SLR or compact camera or years of experience, just 10 simple guidelines.
Take pleasure in!
Hot Tip 1 – Make use of All of your Available Space
Be Flexible and make use of all your available space. Creative framing with the use of available space will ensure a great photo been taken. When shooting on location be aware of lighting conditions and adjust your framing to the available space you have.
Hot Tip 2 – Lighting
Lighting is by far the greatest asset to photography. A brilliant photograph will be taken in ideal lighting conditions. An overcast day is by far the best for wedding photography. This allows for photos to be taken at any angle. Also, will allow softer lighting on the subjects been photographed. Hence, no squinting!
Hot Tip 3 – Movement In Your Photographs
If you are photographing still subjects any movement in the framing will cause a blurred subject. This is OK if this is what you are wanting to achieve.
Also never put a horizon line in the center of your frame.
Hot Tip 4 – Learn To make use of Contrasts Between Colours.
Some of the greatest photos have got shades of white, gray and black. You can take fantastic shots with just one colour in your subject matter, but the contrasts between colours in a shot is what makes you an excellent photographer.
Hot Tip 5 – Get Closer To Your Subject
This is one of the biggest mistakes most photographers make, not getting close enough to their subject. Get up and personal and close the range gap. You can always reshape and resize a great shot but you can’t continue to blowup a distant object.
Hot Tip 6 – Shutter Lag
Shooting action shots with digital camera’s may be tricky as a result of shutter lags. What this means is, when you push the button to take the photo, it could take up to a second for the shutter to take a photo, by that time what you were photographing would have moved or changed somehow. This indicates you have to compensate for shutter lag by predicting what your subject is going to do and taking the photo right before it takes the action you would like. More high-priced digital cameras do not have this issue.
Hot Tip 7 – Pan
If you’re taking an action shot and your shutter speed is slow, pan with the object. Follow through with the subject, from start to finish and one of those shots will be a winner. You will have more chance of obtaining a great shot if you take more then one photo.
Hot Tip 8 – Continuous Photographs
To be able to pan like I suggested above you will need a camera that does continuous shots and doesn’t need to stop and process after every shot.
Hot Tip 9 – How to get Fantastic Nighttime Shots
Nighttime photographs can be spectacular, almost magical…. if done correctly! If not they can look awful. Really unpleasant! Without adequate lighting, even excellent camera’s are able to create awesome photographs.
Hot Tip 10 – Study Your Manual
In the event that your digital digital camera has a special night time mode, read the manual and follow their particular guidelines on the best way to use it properly.
