10 Easy Tips For Taking Better Pictures Everyday

April 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 194

Photography is a difficult art, it takes and master to achieve awesome results, but it's not difficult to take great photos and improve our technique. On-line you can find a lot of guides that will teach you how to use the camera, capture the light, compose the picture and so on. All those advices are very helpful, but I wanted to help by adding my ten tips that have helped me become a better photographer every day:

  1. Don't buy a new camera: Yes, everybody says you need a fancy camera, but trust me, you don't. The reason is tip number 2, you need to use your camera as much as possible, so what happens if you lose your fancy new camera? And what if you forget somewhere that old one?
  2. Take pictures: Yes, it might sound stupid, but it's not. You must take pictures everyday, and not just one. Use your commuting route as a way to focus on your environment and take pictures of it. As many as you can.
  3. Select your best pictures: Spend 20 minutes every day to download your pictures, look at them and choose the best three.
  4. Analyse your best pictures: What makes those three nice? What did you do to make them so good? Analyse your "success" so you can apply it the next day.
  5. Share your pictures: Take part of an on-line community and share your pictures there. Ask for critics, advice and comments. The users are your jury and you will learn much from them.
  6. Use the composition: Play with the pictures composition to distort the view and show what you found interesting in the spot you are picturing.
  7. Use the light: The light is a wonderful way to hide and show objects. Play with it so you can make the interesting points stand out and hide what is meaningless for the photo.
  8. Use a tripod: Tripods are good to hold the camera and give you time to work with your composition and lights. If no tripod is available find a spot were you can stand the camera still.
  9. Wake up early and go to bed late: Sunshine and sunset are the best times to take photos, the sun is not up and shadows are amazing. Take advantage of it so you can play more with the picture and make details stand out.
  10. Work, work, work: Keep focus and remember to take pictures everyday. Your technique will improve with time and you will find more and more difficult to choose your best pictures.

I really hope this tips are useful for you and that you grow, day by day, to become a better photographer. Thanks for reading!
