Improve Photos with 5 Photography Ideas

We all want to take sharper, more exciting and dramatic colorful photos and continually improve our photography skills as time goes by. I know I do, and I also realize that it is not possible to have every single photo I take to be a wonderful image.  Personally, I expect about 1 in maybe 5 or 10 photos to make me smile, although some days it been a complete washout but, it is still and always will be a learning curve.

So what can I do make sure that I continually improve?

  1. Get closer.  We have found a lovely potential for a photo and want to capture that instant.  It could be a landscape or an object.  Move around, get closer and look for an angle that sets up a nice background for our photo or in the case of a landscape, maybe adding some things in the composition of the photo.

2:  Look at the background.  What is behind the object being photographed? Does it enhance the subject?  The background is part of the photo and a bad background really can ruin a good photo.

3: Look at photos.  Photography is an art form.  There are millions of photographs on the web.  Look at them, see what catches your eye.  What makes a photo awesome?  Study other photographers styles.

4: Get the camera steady or supported.  Not everyone can afford an awesome solid tripod so, find something to rest the camera on.  Lean on things for extra support.  The slightest movement of the camera will add blur.  If you want to blur it can be added in Photoshop, but removing blur is quite difficult.

5: Practice.  Take pictures, lots and lots.  Experiment and try.  We have digital cameras, we can take thousands of photos and reuse the card.  No excuse not to really.
