The Digital Photography Guide To Professionals Tricks

Article by learndigitalphotography

Undoubtedly there is no other industry that has been hit with such a tremendous growth over the past 20 years than the electronics field. Technology has changed many things but no where is it more evident than with digital photography. Digital photographs give instant access to the photos you have taken and has eliminated the need for and film processing.

If you are looking to purchase a digital camera you will find ones to meet every budget. The point and click ease with which you can now take photos ensures that everyone, from children to grandparents, can now enjoy photography. Digital technology also allows us to either develop our photos on our own, using photo editing computer software programs, or print our photos directly from our cameras or memory cards. Photo distribution can be done digitally as well, via email or photo sharing websites, allowing you to share your photos with family and friends the moment you take them.

However, for many people out there photography is about more than a simple point and click. Professional and amateur photographers alike consider photography an art form and believe that the simple act of taking a photograph requires planning, patience and effort. To these people the act of taking a photograph is not so simple.

Here are a few digital photography tips to help guide you in taking better pictures:

1. Try to eliminate shadows on your subject when taking photos on bright sunny days. You can do this by using your cameras flash feature which should get rid of shadows that might appear when the sun is at an angle.

2. Highlight your subjects with appropriate backgrounds. If your background is too fussy or distracting you will take the eye off the main subject and potentially ruin your photograph.

3. Pay attention to who is walking in and out of your photograph, especially if you are in crowds. There is nothing worse than having strangers walking through your photograph.

4. Voice your intention prior to taking a photograph. Giving your subjects direction will help you get the shot you are looking for the first time. This is especially important if you are photographing an important event such as a ceremony or function. Make sure you get the photos you want by telling your subjects to smile, ask them to fix their hair if it’s unruly, etc.

5. Place your back to the sun when taking outdoor photos. This will create natural lighting on your subjects faces (please see tip 1 the elimination of shadows when photographing outdoors).

6. The best photos are those that are unplanned and not staged. Candid photos are more exciting to look at and are enjoyed more.

Practice and patience are the key elements to taking great photographs. Don’t let your life’s memories pass you by, take photographs of the ones you love.
