Photography Tricks That Can Help You Out

By George Renoir

Experiment with different types of photography and a variety of subjects to find out where your interests lie. Fortunately, photography is one of those forgiving subjects about which you can learn as much or as little as you like. Here are some great tips to add to your knowledge.

Find people to shoot without being too judgmental. You do not want to be on the lookout for "interesting" people only. People who only interest you may not be interesting to anyone else. Every person is unique, so shoot people in general and not just people you think will make a good shot.

Invest in a side mount flash. A flash mounted off to the side is going to provide a much more natural looking source of light for your photos than one directly above your lens.

When aiming for the perfect shot, remember to keep sunlight in mind. Too little and you can't see the subject. Too much and one of two things happen. The first is that too much sunlight is directed into the camera's lens or on the subject and washes out the picture. The second is the person being photographed has to blink or close his eyes because of the massive amounts of sunlight coming into his eyes.

When trying to take a good photograph, keep it simple. Don't fuss with all the bells and whistles your camera offers. Often, you can create a magnificent photo without having to play with different color settings and motion settings. Instead you'll find yourself wasting valuable time and missing photo opportunities.

Use the right lens for the job. If you are photographing a landscape, for example, you need a wide-angle lens that will let you capture as much of the scene as possible, while sporting events generally require a telephoto lens that let you capture faraway players in high detail. Knowing what lens to choose will make it much easier to produce quality photos.

With these suggestions in hand, start looking at your most recent photographs and see if these tips would have made the pictures even better. If you start noticing that there is a suggestion or two that would greatly improve a few of the photographs you've already taken, try finding a way to incorporate that suggestion into every photograph you take from now on.
