The 3 Most Important Hints to a Successful Photograph
Theme Subject Simple
“It’s not the camera or equipment, it’s YOU.”
PARTS of your CAMERA
ISO + Shutter Speed + Aperture
ISO -International Standard Organization
-the light sensitivity of the camera’s sensor- Thus the more sensitive (the higher the ISO), the noisier.
Shutter Speed-How fast the shutter closes.
-Can either freeze or blur an image.-Can show motion.
Aperture-Determines the Depth Of Field
How do you want yourpicture to look?
How do you know which one to change?
Aperture for DOF
Shutter Speed for Motion
ISO for when Aperture and Shutter Speed are maximized
Elements of Composition
Positive and Negative Space
THE RULE OF THIRDS
Composition- Artistic arrangement of parts of the picture.- Is the mixing and combining of elements to form a whole image.- WILL MAKE OR BREAK YOUR PHOTOGRAPH.
TAKE OUT ELEMENTS THAT DON’T MATCH
- Always use different LAYERS when editing- Smart Sharpen is really helpful- Shadow & Highlight/HDR is a technique not
everyone can pull or not everyone accepts but it’s fun to play around with.
- For Clients: ALWAYS SHOOT IN RAW- For Portfolio: RAW is better- For personal reasons: Large Format is fine or
Medium Format is fine depending how much on your hard drive you’re okay with using.
