10 Secrets To Taking Better Photos
Wait! Once You Have Taken Your Photos, Then You'll Need To Know How To Get Them Organized....Let Me Show You...
1. Choose your focal point.
2. Pay attention to the sun.
3. Change your camera angle.
Naturally, we tend to take photos at eye level. Yet for a different effect, try taking some photos by angling the camera down towards someone or upwards toward your subject. This idea works well if you want a photo of your sleeping baby or your son sitting in the apple tree reading a book. The more you practice with different angles, the more you'll discover unique photo possibilities.
5. Use continuous shooting.
When photographing a person or animal who tends to move around a lot, continuous shooting can be a lot of fun. You take a series of shots and afterwards choose four to six of those shots and use them in a layout in "filmstrip" style. Place the shots side-by-side and it will give your layout an animation feel.
6. Incorporate reflections.
Some of the most interesting photos include reflections, whether it be a person's face reflected in a mirror, a lonely puppy reflected in a window, or the hands of a newly engaged couple reflected in a stream of water. Look for opportunities to capture reflections.
7. Photograph natural moments.
8. Opt for black and white photos.
By using a digital camera, you can always crop a photo later on. If you're taking a photo of your daughter doing a cartwheel in the front lawn, but discover that a person is just beginning to walk into the picture, you can easily crop that person out. Depending on the quality of a photo, you can crop to get a close-up of just the subject's hands, face, etc.
10. Practice, practice, practice.
