The Essential Photography Tips
Notice changes in lighting and adjust to them. This tip definitely matters when you’re shooting outdoors. Light changes throughout the day and even as you move around. So make sure you’re not using the same camera settings throughout the shoot. Adjust them as you notice changes in lighting.
Slow down and pay attention to your composition. There’s no use taking so many shots of the same pose or composition over and over. You won’t get the best photos like this either. Slow down to frame your image, check your composition, and change your subject’s pose if it’s not working out.
Learn how to pose your subjects better. This tip applies to portrait photography especially. Not all subjects know how to give you a variety of poses, so you’ll need to learn how to direct them to give you the pose you want.
Shoot in RAW format to get full control over your photos during post-processing. One of the advantages of digital photography is the amount of control you can get later in post-process when you shoot RAW. Use this to your advantage to see how your image quality can improve.
