5 Tips to Enhance Your Pictures

The following 5 tips signify the top 5 things which have helped me the most to develop as a photographer and I continually refer to these to further my development. I trust they also can assist you along your own journey.

1. It seems simple but it is accurate; looking at pictures that are good will make you a better photographer. Examine images shot by the best photographers in your field.

Personally I've found always looking at other photographers' work and analyzing what it's that appeals to me in pictures that I like to have caused the most improvement in my photography. I truly urge you to be grim in which images you analyze - don't study good pictures but rather only study 'excellent' photos. A great photograph will make you capture your interest and stop and take notice. When looking at such images ask yourself the following questions:

a) What elements immediately appeal to you personally in the image? Is it the light? The theme? The composition? Maybe it was the low angle viewpoint? Comprehend what it is that you enjoy so much from the image and then set out to include these components in your own work. The more pictures you analyze the more apparent trends in what you like so much become.

b) Observe the time of day the image was shot? Was it at pre-dawn or following sunrise? Try and establish a trend and then place-out to shoot during exactly the same times of the day

c) Find the course of lighting; is the light hitting the subject from the back, front or is the matter side lit?

d) What subject continually makes for a solid image?

There are numerous online sources where you are able to seek out amazing photos in my opinion than 500px. Just see the 'Popular' and 'Editors Choice' sections and pick your individual genre (i.e. Landscapes). There's an iPhone App which you can download so that you could be inspired whilst you're on the go.

2. Only reveal your very best pictures - not just images you are fairly happy with but pictures you feel proud to show. There was once a question asked in a presentation by a photographer that was successful and they were asked a straightforward question from one of the crowd members. The question was how to do you become a great photographer? The successful photographer's reply was then just as equally simple; 'never show anyone your lousy photographs'. I think this is really accurate and just very recently is something which I've began to do better after a recent instant once I realised that I was sharing pictures on social media outlets because I felt the need to keep generating images consistently and by doing so compromising on quality and ultimately compromising my reputation along the way... Do not make the same error that I made and just show your very best pictures. Then such an image is just not good enough, in the event that you're in two heads or not sure about an image! Only show images that you simply are absolutely convinced that they are a hero shot. Revealing only 5 very powerful pictures is a lot better than revealing 8 quite strong coupled with two poor images; those two weak pictures will substantially dampen the effect of the other eight and induce the viewer to alter their perception about the characteristic of you as a photographer. The old golden rule stays; quality is better than quantity.

3. This third rule is more relevant to Landscape Photography. To be able to improve as a Landscape Photographer you have to be amazingly persistent! If you visit a scene and you've captured an image which you're not quite content with because the lighting states may haven't been the greatest, then don't settle; return to the same location until you capture an image of the same scene in amazing light. Should you talk to any experienced Landscape Photographer they will let you know that most of their trips and those painful early pre-dawn starts prove fruitless... Accept that you're not always going to come back with images to share and if you're finding that you're getting a rewarding image on each of your shoots then because you're fortunate, it is not but rather your quality expectations are not high enough! It takes years to build a collection of pictures that you could really feel proud of as I have a somewhat understanding of just how much effort has gone into creating their group of images and I have the upmost respect for successful landscape photographers for this very reason.

4. Learn as much as you can about your favoured genre of photography. It is very true; you never stop learning and I like to presume that I am only just learning the basics in a lifelong quest to feel fulfilled. I don't stop trying to learn and I fairly regularly seek workshops and tuition from photographers who I deem to be one of the very best in Landscape Photography in my area. Fuel my want to learn as much as I can about the craft of photography and I want to learn more. I have met some wonderful folks along my brief journey so far and I've found that the community of Australian Landscape Photographers to be a friendly one where we try to discuss knowledge to gain one another. Identify your favourite photographers locally and do not be afraid to contact them about receiving some. Don't expect that these photographers will merely tell you everything that they know for free and instead admiration that these photographers need to make a living from what they do.

5. Finally my last hint would be to just get out there and shoot! Learn by doing! Stop talking about it and just do it! Achieve better results through dedicated actions. There will be mistakes and many discouragements along the way but mistakes are another word for experience. For each unsuccessful shoot a lesson will undoubtedly be learnt and this is what will considerably help you become a better photographer. I have made my share of errors and I am quite sure as I get more experienced, I'll continue to make a few more but I can tell you that I'm much better for each error that I Have made. For example I once left behind an L bracket that holds the camera on my tripod head in the car where I was away leap for a pre-dawn waterfall shoot. Just once I 'd arrived after completing the hour long trek in the dark did I realise that I forgot the L Mount... Year's on and I've never forgotten that same L mount ever again...

I hope if so I'd greatly appreciate you letting me know and you got something out of these suggestions. I'd like to hear your opinions.

Most communities have some kind of historical society. Try contacting the local library, in case you can not locate a listing for one. Once you've tracked them down, pay them a visit and ask to see old pictures of the region. Find a chance taken back as far as the middle 1800's, possible is ideal, and get a copy of the photo. Now take your gear, go to the exact same area and shoot a modern day photo etc., from the same vantage point Try and duplicate as a lot of the photo as you can... if there is a horse and buggy going down the road, comprise a car at the exact same area in your photo. Whether there are folks wandering down the pavement, place some people in yours too! I am sure you know what I mean! You are attempting to duplicate as much as possible. (Don't forget to shoot the shot at the same time of day!)

Print them out side by side, once you are done. This endeavor is going to educate you more than you can really ever call! It'll teach you to look for and be observant of details, although it'll not only teach you the best way to work with your gear. Not only that, this endeavor is well suited for children just starting out in photography all the way through old retired expert shooters. Everything depends on you and how much detail you want to carry.

For example... In the initial photograph with people wandering down the pavement... does your photo show them?

A photo by a teenaged beginner may not. It's OK. Shoot at your own level! Are you advanced? If that's the case the strollers are contained! We can even go deeper in the event that you want to... Is it the same size family group as the original? Are they made up of exactly the same mix? (Guy, girl, three kids.)

In other words, you can keep it simple - no individuals at all! Just the place. Or you'll be able to get as sophisticated as you desire. This project is a guaranteed method to get known in your community - once people have seen your before and following photographs. Compile them in a collection and contribute a copy to the neighborhood historical society, library, Chamber of Commerce.

Then, do it! Before long you'll have enough of them to put together a 'then and now' type of novel! Chambers of Commerce love this sort of thing!

You ARE going to appreciate this photo job! Not only will you have a great deal of fun, learn to master your equipment and produce a critical photo 'eye.' You will quickly become known in the community for your photography! To find out more, check the resources box!
