We all love to take photographs, we want to capture the world with our cameras, but how often do we succeed in taking the pictures we wanted to take in the first place? We often realize after clicking the photographs that they are not of our taste. What to do, then? We must be aware of the basic tenets of photography in order to turn our monotonous photographs into talking pictures.
Let’s see some digital photography tutorials that cover the basic tenets of clicking good, convincing pictures:
Starting at the beginning: Of course, the first thing is to have the equipment to click photographs, i.e. the camera. After selecting one, you should be able to start it by putting in the batteries and memory card to save your photographs. Now, if you are an amateur photographer, you may not know the intricacies of your camera, so the best thing for you would be to set your camera to auto mode, where all the functions take care of itself.
Selecting this mode may also make your camera get disabled for certain manual functions. But you need not worry about it as most of the time the quality of your clicked photographs would be more than sufficient to convince you, only except in case if you want them to be near-perfect.
These tips would let you understand not only the positioning of the object in your shoot but also the other basic things required therein:
- Place your object in the center of the frame, so that your picture is filled more with the object than with the background.
- Choose whether your object will look better in a horizontal or vertical frame. For this, you may first see which frame looks better for your object. For instance, the photo of one person may look better in vertical frame, while the photo of a group of people may look better in a horizontal frame.
- Holding the camera the right way is also important. Hold it with a tight grip and avoid covering the lens with your fingers, etc.
- Avoid shaking the camera, deliberately or otherwise, as it will blur the pictures.
- Be choosy when showing your clicked photographs to others. Go for the best ones.
Clicking good, convincing photographs is both an art and science. If you know the intricacies of it, you may do wonders with your skills. You can also join a photography school or attend photography workshops to learn more about photography.
