There are many digital photography tips and resources out there. I’ve ran through many books on photography and have got disappointed very often. Many books are nothing but photos and meaningless subtitles. This article will give you some tips you can use right now to start seeing better results.
One of the easiest ways to get better photos is to start using easy compositional techniques when you take photos. There is a whole subject on composition. It dates back to when people painted. The great thing about learning composition techniques is that you can use them for photography, videos, and even paintings!
One simple tip to use is to get closer to the subject you are photographing. Let me explain…many people take photos too far from the subject. This results in a subject that is hard to view. Also, it adds much more negative space that is not there for a purpose. The result is a boring photo. So, get closer and your photos will start looking better.
Negative Space and positive space are very important for photography. I already mentioned negative space. What is it? When you take a photo there is a main subject of the shot. The main subject is the positive space. Everything else is negative space. How you balance both of these spaces affects how the shot comes out.
There is no right or wrong answer. Sometimes using plenty of negative space can make the main subject look lost, confused, or free. And using little negative space can make the subject look trapped or give a very intimate feeling to the shot.
There are many tips out there, but be sure to master each tip so you reap the most benefits.
