Although most people think that taking a picture is just as simple as pointing and shooting, there really is
an art form to it. Typically, your photos never look quite as good as you imagined they would. However,
once you learn the proper techniques that you can gather if you will just click on the link, it really is
simple to take great pictures.

Try out different approaches to scale, expressions and perspectives. An otherwise ordinary subject can
appear quite artful if placed in an environment where it appears drastically disproportionate in size or
humorously out of place. To get a new view of a familiar object, work on the compositions.

When you are taking pictures of something that happens to be moving fast, make sure you have the
right settings in place on your camera, so that your pictures are not just blurs. One way to do this is by
increasing you ISO. You will get clearer and more interesting shots of moving objects.

Strive to ensure your models, especially any you don't already know, feel relaxed in your presence.
Many people have an instinctive negative reaction to someone taking their picture. Have a nice chat and
make them feel comfortable with you, and then ask if it's okay to photograph them. Let them
understand that photography is not a way of invading their privacy, but it is rather an art.

Silhouettes are a wonderful photography technique. While most people use the sunset to create a
silhouette, there are other methods. If your background is much brighter than your subject, you'll notice
a silhouette forming. Having a beautiful silhouette can be as simple as positioning the flash away from
the camera, behind the subject you are photographing. A bright light outside a window can also produce

aspect of your subject.

Inspire your own creative photographs by joining photography clubs or taking photos with another
photographer. While you can gain a lot of knowledge from another person, you should not let them
influence your style. Take photos of the same subject; then compare the two shots. It can prove
interesting to see two different takes on the same subject through the eyes of two different

Try balancing white levels manually when you shoot pictures. This allows you to have greater control
over your pictures by altering the overall mood and tone. You may have to experiment a bit when you're
first learning how to manually adjust the white balance, but you'll soon see how inventive and
resourceful you can be with your photography when using this technique.

Think of your viewfinder as a piece of paper that is folded into three sections and then folded the other
way into three sections. You should visualize three horizontal and three vertical folds. When you focus
on a subject, try to see where the subject falls on these imaginary lines. Ideally, your subject should be
where the vertical and horizontal folds intersect.

For a creative touch, experiment with the focus. Lowering the f-stop will focus on the subject of your
photograph, and blur the background of the picture. This works great for portraits since the subject is
much closer. A larger f-stop number gives you a deeper depth of field. This will result in everything in
the photograph being sharp and in focus. This would be fantastic for landscape shots.
