10 tips to take to become a better photographer

Take a good photograph is not as hard as you may think. You do not need the camera most expensive, if not years of experience, just 10 simple tips.


Tip 1 - Use all the space at your disposal

Do not be afraid to use any space in your photo. If you want to take a picture of something, it's OK for her to take the shot all with little or no background showing. Keep the distractions of your shooting

Tip 2 - study the forms

It is an essential aspect to photography. Understanding forms in your photos. Can not find something, she its shape and form and find the best angle to photograph files. The form is all around us and I strongly suggest you read as many books on it as possible.

Tip 3 - Motion of your photos

Never move your pictures if you photograph a stationary object. If there is anything that moves while you try to photograph a stationery object, your photo does not look nearly as good. Also never put a horizon line in the center of your frame.

Tip 4 - Learn to use contrasting colors.

Some of the best photos have shades of white, gray and black. You can take quality pictures with one color on your subject, but the contrasts between colors in a picture that makes you a great photographer.

Tip 5 - Get Closer to Your Subject

This is one of the biggest mistakes most photographers do not get close enough to their subject. Get up close and personal and the gap distance. You can always rearrange and resize a good shot but you can not continue Blowup a distant object.

Tip 6 - Shutter Lag

Shooting action scenes with digital camera can be difficult due to shutter lag. That means when you press the button to take the picture, it may take up to one second for the shutter to take a picture by this time what you were photographing would have moved or changed somehow. This means that you have to compensate for shutter lag by predicting what will make your subject and take the picture just before it takes the action you want. More expensive digital cameras do not have this problem.

Tip 7 - Pan

If you take an action shot and your shutter speed is slow, pan with the object. Follow through the subject from start to finish and one of these plans will be a winner. You're more likely to get a good shot if you take more than one photo.

Tip 8 - Burst Mode

To crop as I suggested above, you'll need a camera that does continuous shots and does not need to stop and process after every shot.

Tip 9 - How to Take Fantastic Night Time Shots

Night time shots can be spectacular, almost magical .... so well done! Otherwise, they can be horrible. Really horrible. Without adequate lighting, even good camera can be crappy photos if the photographer does not know what he or she does.

Tip 10 - Study your manual

If your camera has a special night mode, read the manual and follow the instructions on how to use it properly.
