The Art Of Photography
Skeptics think that a good photograph is just a case of luck when taking pictures. While this can happen, there are also many individuals who can transform their shots into masterpieces just by considering the many factors that make a picture awe inspiring. Others think that it is not at all in how good your camera is but in the talent of the photographer.
Factors In Pictures
When taking pictures, there are many things that you need to consider so that they turn out well. Experts like to say that the light is one of the more important things to consider when taking pictures. There is no question that light is important.
Actually, the light or the absence of can be made into art if you are creative enough. You can still take pictures in dim light if you want to, by adjusting the speed of your camera to gather up as much light as possible. This is how some pictures turn out to be works of art because the lights depicted in the scene are sort of moving. So light, or the absence of it, is an important factor. It is up to the person taking pictures just how creative he can be using the light or its absence.
Another important factor is the framing of the shot - the composition. Some scenes look so great in person but turn out not as awesome in pictures. The reason for this is that what we see through our eyes is not limited by the frame of the picture while the picture is. The person taking the pictures needs to consider the fact that the pictures are cut to a certain size and when they take pictures, what is in the frame in the viewfinder is what you get. One of the important talents is the ability to compose the picture for depth and perspective, especially in landscapes or nature since these are usually large scale images.
The subject is also an aspect in photography that needs to be considered. You need to adjust your shot with the subject in mind. Smaller subjects may need to be focused more or zoomed in more to bring out what has attracted you to it in the first place. Finding out what has attracted you to the scene is one of the things that you need to put in the shot in order for viewers to understand why you find the scene or shot attractive.
Photography can be tricky in the sense that the combination of the person taking pictures and the camera and the scene needs to work in order for the photograph to work and be understood.
