Tuesday’s Tip for better photos #1

Let me introduce you to the first Tuesday’s Tip for better photos! In my Facebook poll, when asked what you would like to see as a regularly scheduled post, you voted on photography tips. These tips will be meant mostly for beginners, because  preferably with a DSLR camera, just so we’re all on the same page. Some tips may be applicable to point and shoot cameras, so I encourage you to pay attention anyway if that’s all you have. After all, maybe you will be inspired to upgrade! 🙂

Okay, here goes…

Tuesday’s Tip #1:

Change your perspective. You won’t believe how much more interesting a subject can become when you force yourself to photograph it from a new angle. Some of my best photos were taken in the most uncomfortable positions, but they were well worth it! I suggest finding a subject that you can manuver around, and try taking pictures from all different positions. Don’t worry about your camera settings as much, just think about perspective. Shoot straight down from above, bend over, climb a ladder, lay on the ground, get as close as possible, and get far away. Don’t just stand there, move around!


Have any questions? Leave them in the comments below. Maybe I can answer your question in next week’s post. 🙂
