Simple Composition Rules that you should remember
Why some photos from the same location are nicer than the others? What can you do to have the possible shot? These 5 Simple Composition Rules can improve your image quality and turn your image from “good” to “AWESOME!”
When the Light is directional use Backlight to highlight amazing saturated colours, and outline shapes with rim light.
2-Different Metering Modes
To take the most advantage of this directional light, you need to know about the camera’s built in light meter, as well as the different modes that direct it. As a rule of thumb, Spot Metering or Centre Weighted metering works better in bright, directional light.
3-Stabilizing your shots
Whenever we do not have enough light to shoot with fast shutter speeds as well as to maintain a deep Depth-Of-Field, use a Monopod or Tripod to stabilize your camera for sharper images and wider Depths-Of-Field.
4-Keep the Balance
These 2 images are shot at the same time and settings, the only change is the orientation of the camera. Take your time and examine both orientations to find which one works better for you. A more balanced image is more eye pleasing.
5-Angle Of View
You can change the perspective of your photos by changing the angle of your camera. Angle Of View (AOV) is the most artistic and impactful part of visual arts. Always try different AOVs.
That is all for this week. Feel free to send us your images for critiques or posting on our blog. Check our Upcoming Classes for amazing workshops.
