5 Tips to Improve Your Pictures

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

1. Looking at good pictures will cause you to be a better photographer but it is true although it seems easy. Analyze pictures recorded by the best photographers in your field.

Personally I Have discovered always looking at other photographers' work and studying 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 analyze good pictures but rather merely study 'fantastic' pictures. A great photograph will make you stop and take notice and catch your interest. When looking at pictures that are such ask yourself these questions:

a) What elements instantly appeal to you in the image? Is it the light? The topic? The composition? Perhaps 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 elements in your own work. The more pictures you study the more apparent trends in what you like become.

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

c) Observe the direction of lighting; is the light hitting the subject from the rear, front or is the issue side lit?

d) What matter continually makes for a strong image?

There are numerous on-line sources where you can seek out amazing pictures 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 can be inspired whilst you are on the go.

2. Only show your very best pictures - not merely images you are pretty happy with but images you feel proud to reveal. 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 answer was afterward just as equally straightforward; 'never show anyone your bad pictures'. I think this is very accurate and only quite recently is something which I've began to do better after a recent moment when I realised that I was sharing images on social media outlets since I felt the need to keep generating images regularly and by doing so compromising on quality and finally compromising my standing along the way... Don't make the same mistake that I only reveal your very best pictures and made. Then such an image is just not good enough, in the event you are in two minds or not sure about an image! Only reveal pictures which you're completely convinced that they are a hero shot. Showing just 5 really powerful images is significantly better than showing 8 really strong coupled with two feeble pictures; those two feeble pictures will substantially dampen the impact of the other eight and induce the viewer to change their perception about the quality of you as a photographer. The old golden rule still stays; quality is better than amount.

3. This third rule is more relevant to Landscape Photography. To be able to improve as a Landscape Photographer you need to be incredibly persistent! You also have captured an image that you just are not quite happy with because the lighting states may haven't been the greatest and should you visit a scene, then don't settle; return to the same location until you capture an image of the same scene in light that is amazing. In case you talk to any veteran Landscape Photographer they'll tell you that the majority of their excursions and those distressing early pre-dawn starts prove fruitless... Accept that you're not always going to come back with images to share and if you are finding that you are capturing a rewarding image on each of your shoots it is not because you are lucky but instead your quality expectations aren't high enough! It takes years to construct a collection of pictures which you can feel proud of as I have a somewhat understanding of just how much effort has gone into making their set of pictures 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 really accurate; you never stop learning and I like to think 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 often seek workshops and tuition from photographers who I deem to be among the best in Landscape Photography in my region. I like to find out more and fuel my desires to learn as much as I can about the craft of photography. I have met some amazing people along my brief journey so far and I Have found that the community of Australian Landscape Photographers to be a friendly one where we attempt to share knowledge to benefit one another. Your favourite also don't be scared to contact them about receiving some paid for knowledge sharing and photographers in your area. Do not expect that these photographers will only tell you everything that they understand for free and instead respect that these photographers need to make a living from what they do.

5. Eventually my last tip is to just simply get out there and shoot! Learn by doing! Stop talking about it and just do it! Achieve better results through actions that is dedicated. There'll be many frustrations and mistakes along the way but blunders are another word for experience. For each failed shoot a lesson will undoubtedly be learnt and this is what'll significantly enable you to become a better photographer. I have made my share of mistakes and I'm quite sure as I get more experienced, I Will continue to make a few more but I can tell you that I'm much better for each blunder 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 bound for a pre-morning waterfall shoot. Just once I had arrived after completing the hour long trek in the dark did I realise that I forgot the L Bracket... Year's on and I Have never forgotten that same L bracket ever again...

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

Most communities have some sort of historical society. Try contacting the local library, in the event you can not locate a listing for one. Once you have tracked them down, pay a visit to them and request to see old photographs of the region. Find an opportunity taken back as far as the middle 1800's, possible is ideal, and get a duplicate of the photo. Now take your equipment, go to the exact same spot and shoot a modern day photo etc., from the exact same vantage point Try and duplicate as much of the photo as you can... if there is a horse and buggy going down the street, contain an automobile at the exact same area in your photo. If there are people strolling down the sidewalk, set some folks in yours too! I'm certain you know what I mean! You're striving to replicate as much as possible. (Do not forget to take the picture at the same time of day!)

Once you're done, print them out side by side. This job will educate you more than you could really ever call! It'll not only educate you on the way to work with your gear, but it'll teach you to try to find and be observant of details. Not only that, this endeavor is ideal for children just starting out in photography all the way through old retired professional shooters. It all depends on you and just how much detail you want to carry.

For example... In the first photograph with folks strolling down the pavement... does your photo reveal them?

A photo by a teenaged beginner may not. It's OK. Shoot at your own level! Are you sophisticated? If that's the case the strollers are contained! We can even go deeper in the event you would like to... Is it the same size family group as the original? Are they made up of the same combination? (Man, woman, three children.)

In other words, you can keep it simple - no people in the slightest! Only the location. Or you can definitely get as elaborate as you want. This job is a surefire method to get known in your community - once people have seen your before and after photographs. Compile them in a group and contribute a copy to the local historical society, library, Chamber of Commerce.

Afterward, do it again! Before long you'll have enough of them to put together a 'then and now' type of publication! Chambers of Commerce adore this sort of thing!

You ARE going to love this photo project! Not only will you have a lot of fun, learn to master your gear and create a critical photo 'eye.' You'll fast become known locally for your photography! To learn more, check the resources box!
