For some, photography is a hobby, and for others, it is a career that they take seriously. Here are some tips that might come in handy if you want to become a good photographer.
Don’t Focus So Much On The Gear
Do not worry about having the right equipment or an excellent camera when you are starting out. Take your time tolearn. Look at some real photographs and take some of the most valuable tips that you hear photographers talking about. For example, if you look at most phones when you want to take a picture, it is divided into nine boxes. Do not take the picture in the middle. Capture the photo on any of the other boxes and see how it look like. Keep learning other essential skills. You do not need a good camera to be able to learn
Timing Is Paramount
Some of the most incredible photos that have ever been taken were taken just after dawn and also just before the sun sets. These are the golden hours of photography. Lighting is what matters. The streams of light during this times will make sure that what you capture will look beautiful.
Limit Yourself On Purpose
When you limit yourself, you limit your ability to add so much. For example, assume that you did not have your camera or any of your lenses and you had to use just your phone to take pictures. You would be forced to be more precise and careful with angles and your composition. Limit yourself to taking pictures of say just houses or buildings or just animals and see how that changes your techniques. You will find that the skills that you acquire from this exercise will stay with you even when you are not limited.
Look At The Work Of Different Photographers
Take your time to study other peoples’ works and pictures so that you can learn from them. Take it upon yourself to spend some time with photographers of different kinds. Look at the work they have done and ask yourself what it is that draws you so much to these pictures. There is a lot to learn from different pictures and the different messages they send.
Shoot From Different Angles And Positions
Try not to take all pictures from one angle or position or all at eye level. Move around. Take some pictures from up and lie down to take other photos. Take art classes to gain perspective.
