I wondered just what are some great tips or advice that you can really benefit from knowing when trying to take a really great photograph. As a social media influencer it is very important for me to give my audience the best pictures that I can to show off the products that I am reviewing or featuring at the time. Of course no matter what I try, for me it always could be so much better.
I know that equipment like a really good camera and lighting has a lot to do with the main reasons that my photos are not super thrilling but for that is more of a budget problem. Perhaps one day someone will have me review a great camera with an awesome lighting studio. With the right amount of time, experience and not having a shaking hand. I even think that most of my photos are spectacular when I see them, but then I see a professional and just get stumped as to how they are making everything look magazine worthy. You are usually not going to be able to create perfect photos your first time trying so just do not give up.
I did get some of the following tips from the internet along with a few of my own opinions. First one is Get in close which means Fill the frame with your subject and see how much better your photo will look without so much wasted space. The closer you are to the subject, the better you can see their facial expressions too. Secondly slow down and take time to think about what is going on in the viewfinder before pressing the shutter.
Third although I think that the better the camera the better the picture, but I read that most of the time that is just not so, and depend on the photographer and experience, even a cell phone can take a decent photograph.
Asking permission or giving photo credit, especially when finding photos to use via the internet is a huge thing, and I never realized it because it is super easy to search for any kind of photo and use it, I did not think anything would be a problem. However certain sites and people do mind and can actually cause quite a stir. It most cases it is always better to take your own photo, but that is not always possible so just double check that it is ok first. Not only on the internet but offline as well, some places require permission to photograph in.
When photographer and entrepreneur Ismail Sirdah was asked, what is the best piece of advice anyone has ever given you? He stated practice really does make perfect. It takes a lot of hours of practice to gain good photography instincts, so just keep going!
