Adjusting your shutter speeds can really help to improve the quality of your photos. As you try to capture subjects in motion, opt for a faster shutter speed. This eliminates blurring and distortion, and allows for quicker responses. This can be especially important if you’re photographing sporting events, concerts, or a group of animals in the wild. On the other hand, the motion blur created by a slow shutter can be used to your advantage. Waterfalls and streams look phenomenal when shot with this method.
Hold your camera at eye level. This better enables you to capture a personal and inviting image. For pets and animals this means getting right down to their level to take photographs but by doing so you will bring the viewer more intimately into the shot and evoke a more emotional response.
Holding a camera may seem basic, but it can make or break your pictures. This is critical, because you won’t get a stable image if you don’t hold the camera properly. Your arms should stay in tight with your trunk and your weaker hand should hold the lens up. In this day and age, you need to know digital photography basics to digitally improve your photos. This means learning the basics of programs like Photoshop. While you should not totally rely on these programs, you can definitely perfect the shots you actually take. After all, you can only control so much when shooting. The above paragraphs should have put you into an entirely new frame of mind when it comes to photography. Hopefully, you’re now inspired to get out there, apply what you’ve learned, and shoot, shoot, shoot!
