A few tips of the photographer trade I’d like to share with you.
- Light is the most important component in photography and second is composition.
- Patience is a virtue, in Nature photography as well as life.
- You should spend whatever time it takes to get fully engrossed in the subject to the point where you’ve looked at every possible way of taking a particular image.
- When it comes to having an eye for composition, some things can be learned and some things just come naturally. One must develop an intuitive sense of composition.
- Focus on the elements of color, pattern, composition and light to design powerful personal images.
- The best landscape images actually change the way we perceive the world around us and our place in it. It is this that changes landscape photography from a pastime to a lifelong passion, as we make the transition from looking to seeing.
- During those special moments, you feel you’re in touch with the Creator.
- A photograph can be technically perfect, yet still lack the components necessary to bring to life.
- Questions to ask yourself: what makes a photography memorable and how can I express what I see more creatively.
- At the heart of any good photograph lies a passion for the subject. Try to develop the natural eye first and then bring a camera up to it.
