When I compose a shot I try to include three elements within the frame that will create a story within the image. Context (where are we?), Narrative (What is the story we are telling here?) and Emotion (What is the feeling the image elicits?).
The idea behind this series of tutorials is to walk you through the steps a photographer takes to reach their final shot, and the thought process behind those steps. There’s a long learning curve to taking a photo that you’ve never attempted before and this tutorial is all about helping you to cut out the time it takes to reach a shot you’re happy with.
A photography workshop is a place to which everyone who is interested in photography should pay a visit every once in a while; especially the workshops organized by the renowned professionals.
When you review your shot, you should look for a number of indicators to determine the quality of your silhouette.
Shooting at night for me, came about from the fact that I didn’t really have too much free time in the day, so I would go out and practice my photography with some friends at night. It’s a slightly harder skill to master because the shots take longer to expose, I liken it to shooting on film; you think a lot more about your settings and composition before you shoot, which helps you to hone in your skill much quicker.
Landscape photography is one of the most challenging and most rewarding forms of photography. Want to get amazing results every time? You will need to know a few things.
A good street photographer is not only fearful in the beginning (this is a good sign of being sensitive) but they also don’t want to do anything which will change the how the subject is behaving.
If you are the type of photographer, that like me, prefers to work outdoor rather then in a studio, the effort in choosing the right locations is quite challenging. Needless to say, the choice of location will determine the success of your photo shoot.
Natural lighting in photos can give off a pure vibe that artificial lighting often has trouble providing for you. There are several techniques you can use when using natural light photography.
Dynamic tension is a way of using the energy and movement available in various features of the frame to draw the eye out of the picture in contrasting directions. We’ve already looked at a variety of different lines that you can use in a photo to make it more interesting, but dynamic tension takes these lines and adds varying degrees of contrast between them, making them much more interesting.
