5 Tips for Great Autumn Photography

Autumn is the season of change. All around you will see colours changing. The reds, blues, and different shades of brown. Even the Sun takes up a new colour. There is no better time for taking a photograph.You can never take a picture which is bad at this time. If you are out for a walk soaking in the nature, do remember to bring the camera along.

If you take care only a bit you can come up with photographs which will make the Professional anxious. Here are a few easy tips for great pictures in this dream season.

  1. Take care of timing – In this season the same spot can have different hues at different times.So, if you are taking picture in the morning it will be completely different from noon. Even 30 minutes difference will change the picture altogether. So take care of the timing and rock.
  2. Add water – If you can add that sparkling water body to your photo it will sing a song. A pond, lake or a river really enhances the quality of the photo you have clicked.
  3. Bird eye view – A higher vantage point will help you take a wide photo. In Autumn the view from the Top is really awesome.
  4. Worm eye view – This I always try. Fallen leaves can be shot in a different manner by taking a closer view. Get yourself dirty and come up with great shots of nature.
  5. Shoot the Sun – This is the best thing you can do in this season. The sunrise and sunset are the best time shoot beautiful pictures.

So, just walk to your favourite spot and click. The picture will always be nice, and you will love the colours.

 

Focus and lighting

Thanks to smartphones and social networks, people take millions of photos and share it with millions others momentarily. But only a tiny number of those images are good photos. I am sure this number would be much greater, had only people begun avoiding two very obvious photography mistakes: blurry photos and too dark or too light photos.

Everyone loves selfies; there is no better and quicker way to boost your self-esteem. But don’t be too quick! Slow down a bit, or else you just might end up like Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

Lookin blurred

The couple looks fabulous, no doubt, even in such a crappy and blurred picture like this. For the simpler folk, it might be better to take things slowly and get a clearer image: be it your face, a beautiful scenery, or your friend’s cute cat. Take it easy, concentrate, and focus!

Another common cause of unclear photos is not paying attention to lighting. This is also a consequence of rushing to show the picture to the world, disregarding what the picture itself looks like. This results in either photos where the flash eats up the entire image or grainy, dark and indiscernible images. Again, just take your time and consider lighting. Remember to always use a flash when taking pictures at night or in the club, and when you do, keep an eye on your focus so that the picture has other visible elements, not just your flash.

Tips for beginner photographers

It does not matter if you want to be a photographer or if you just want to learn how to take better photos, there are some basic tips and tricks you can follow.

First of all, you have to keep in mind that the right camera can only take you so far. If you are a beginner photographer or you do not want to invest that much money on a hobby or an interest, you don’t have to buy a fancy DSLR. You can get amazing photos with your phone camera, or a point-and-shoot as well. You just have to make sure that you learn the basics of photography.

Photography Tips for Beginners

If you want to take good photos, you should start observing the subject or the scene you wish to photograph. This will provide you with interesting angles to work on, and let you observe moments that would make great photographs. Of course, you could go over the camera settings and find out if you can tweak the exposure, the saturation, brightness, or the focus to make the photo better. Remember- editing can make a photo better, but a lot depends on the actual capture.

You have to keep practicing– after all, you will learn to take good photos only after you have taken a number of bad ones.

Instagram Tips for Amateur Photographers

Instagram has provided a lot of amateur photographers the ability to explore different facets of photography. Say what you want about the number of mundane photographs that do turn up on your Instagram feed, they are encouraging people into taking up photography and that’s good enough for me.

There are some basic trips that amateur photographers can use to make their Instagram pictures look much better than usual.

  • Work your angles: It does not matter if you are just taking a selfie, or a photo of a rather beautifully designed cup of coffee, getting a good angle on the photo is really important. It will transform the entire subject and make your photo stand out.

Work your angles

  • Make use of the borders. Instagram has a lot of borders that help perfectly frame the moment and give the moment a feel.

Perfect the Frames

  • Details. The details do matter. Did you notice a pattern you really like? Are you wearing funky earrings? Does the wall in that cafe have interesting photos? Why don’t you take a photo of that? Noticing the details and the smaller things are the first steps towards becoming a professional.

Pay attention to details

  • Lighting is important. This will take a while for you to perfect. You have to find the perfect blend of highlight and shadows in order for you to find the perfect angles on the subject of the photo.

Get the highlights and shadows right
