A Journey Through Life

Let the sun shine brightly Let there be happiness and joy Let the ocean roar in laughter Let the mind roam in the sky Let the birds sing their song Let the nature make Earth beautiful Let the wind show her might Let the child clap in delight Let the butterfly kiss the flowers Let everyone smile

Photography Tips - Basic Framing Techniques

Ø  Frame, adjust zoom, pause 2 to 3 sec before releasing shutter. On the view finder imagine that you are looking at the final print out picture. Readjust frame if required.
Ø  Try to visualize a picture then frame it & shoot. Don’t take pictures for the sake of taking it.
Ø  Observe various photographs, take notes, photography is an art, explore it.
Ø  Positioning & timing are important aspects of photography.
Ø  Always try to take natural shots, speak with your subjects if possible and assure your subjects to be comfortable.
Ø  In case of framing friends, known people, set the positions as per your need. Try to have control of the subjects in your frame.
Ø  In case of group photo instead of making people stand in the same line, break it into 2 or more rows.
Ø  Take multiple shots at least 3 to 4 snaps to be sure that no eyes are shut.
Ø  Avoid taking same shots of the same subject in same position over & over again. Try to capture different moments & different positions.
Ø  If a group has to be shot in a single line try to shoot in a diagonal angle.
Ø  In case of portraits more than 2/3rd of the frame should be covered by subject. Check the best possible angle and dress setup.
Ø  Wherever possible try center framing depending on the subject. In case of framing a subject in motion either leave some space in front or backwards to the direction of the subject motion.
Ø  Try different angles.
Ø  While framing 2 people specially man & a woman try to make one person sit while the other standing.
Ø  Try to picture a crowd from top view, it gives an impression of extended viewing effect.
Ø  Background of the subject is very important.
Ø  Avoid unnecessary & undesirable foreground, try to frame a subject relatively closer, use zoom.
Ø  Picture must carry a message or exhibit expression. A picture which doesn’t evoke any emotion is a wasted shot.
