Additional Photography Information:
Photography is built on the three pillars of exposure: shutter speed, aperture and sensitivity. It has been said that a picture is worth a 1,000 words. For Beautiful Photograph you really need is to take a moment before each shot to think clearly about what you are attempting to capture or create.
1. Compose in Thirds
Composition, the act of composing the image in the viewfinder is the heart of a photograph. The rule of thirds states than an image is most pleasing when its subjects or regions are composed along imaginary lines which divide the image into thirds-the position of different elements in a frame – both vertically and horizontally. In the rule of thirds, imagine four lines, two lying horizontally across the image and two vertical creating nine even squares. This gives you a more dramatic, visually interesting shot than one where you subject is located dead center.
2. Direction of Lighting
Lighting is a key factor in creating a successful image. The word “photography” comes from two Greek words, phos meaning light, and graphis meaning drawing. The job of a photographer is to capture light into an still image. Never shoot with the sun directly behind you. It creates boring, flat light on the subject.
3. Using Flash
Flash can look harsh and unnatural especially for indoor portraits. If it is an extremely bright day outside and the sun is creating harsh shadows on your subject, switch on your flash. When you have to use the in camera flash, keep your subject(s) away from walls. If you forcing extra light onto your subject, you will be able to fill in those ugly shadows and create an even exposure.
4. Use The Right ISO
Photography is built on the three pillars of exposure: shutter speed, aperture and sensitivity. ISO measures the sensitivity of the image sensor. The “normal” range of ISO is about 200 to 1600. With today's digital cameras you can sometimes go as low as 50 or as high as 204,800. The ISO we choose depends on the situation. If you are shooting outside during the middle of the day you will need to use a lower ISO such as 100 or 200. when it's dark we need to push the ISO up to a higher number .
