Basic Photography Tips
We are constantly working on bringing you the best basic photography tips on the web! There's no escaping the fact that your best chance of getting a magnificent image in the bad is to have your camera on hand, ready to press the shutter button... And always practice keeping your eyes open! Just as rewarding as 'capturing the moment' is the planning and executing of a carefully thought-out image.
Have Camera, Be Ready!
If you're an enthusiastic photographer, the most important tip any professional would share with you is to always have a camera at your side and be ready to use it.
A lot of sports photography, as well as people-based photography is basically about being ready for those once-in-a-lifetime opportunistic shot. It's one of the key points of difference between photography and other traditional creative crafts.
Even in landscape photography where mountains and rivers are not going to move any time soon, you need to be quick as weather and light conditions are always changing. Recognising an opportunity for taking an atmospheric picture and acting on it is an essential photographic skill.
Pre-visualising Photo Opportunities
As enjoyable as it is to capture the moment in photography, pre-visualising a shoot days, weeks, or months in advance can be incredibly rewarding too.
If you know the result you're after, you can dictate the location, optimum lighting, style and timing of a shot. Logistical concerns are very important for any shoot, but with pre-visualising you're in control of fine-tuning the details exactly as you want them to be. It just requires imagination, passion and the motivation to make it happen.
So what separates you from the rest of the herd is to have good anticipation, think on your feet, and have quick reactions. Combine this with an ability to plan in advance because you're able to create a picture in your mind's eye before pressing the shutter button, and you're on your way to creating strong images.
