The question of how to learn to take better photos has always been at the forefront of my mind. I have a passion for photography, have owned more than a couple of different cameras, and have had a great love affair with digital photography.
However, I have never been good at taking the type of images that I’m looking for. It wasn’t until I took up photography seriously that I started to develop an eye for what is popular. I have a lot of friends who do digital photography and they have a great love for photography. They do a great job taking great photos.
So, why does photography attract such a disparate crowd? Why is there such a huge group of people that are so passionate about photography?
I think it is all down to the mindset that a person has. People who think in terms of the ‘wow factor’ (i.e. pictures that are worth a lot of money) have a very different mindset than those that see pictures as objects to be looked at and not as works of art.
So, how to learn to take better photos? Here are a few tips that I have used to make my work stand out.
The first thing I did to make my work stand out was to take as many pictures as I could. I would go to the local supermarket and take as many pictures as I could to post on my blog, and then I would go back the next day and edit them.
If I wanted to add a little something to the picture, I would just try to put my finger on what I thought the picture could do. I would make my choice in terms of what to put in the picture and try to work it into the picture.
Once I started doing this, I started to think like a photographer (rather than like myself in the frame of the picture), and it started to pay off. Now, when I take my pictures, they look as good as the ones I have taken from the supermarket. I have taken a completely different approach to take them.
Now, my pictures are taken in a completely different way. They are not just pictures of me in front of a store. They are pictures of me in front of an idea.
Now that I have this new attitude to my photography, I love taking pictures. I have been taking pictures for a long time, and my photos are far better because of it.
My best images are my pictures of people and places. I love taking pictures of people because I get to create a story about them.
I am also now using the power of editing to enhance the look of the people that are in my pictures. I can turn people into a story.
I feel that people are much more interesting than in photos alone. And that they can look better in photos.
