How to professionally photograph: the basic rules
- The rule of the golden section is basic, they are usedall photographers are pro. How it works? Everything is simple - the frame is conditionally divided into 9 equal rectangles - three lines in the horizontal and vertical planes. Key objects are usually located in the corners of these rectangles.
- When photographing portraits, make sure that limbsor the head was not "circumcised," especially with the hands and feet. When portraiture takes a meaningfully chosen background - it's better if it is not too detailed or contain distracting bright spots - after all, the accent should be on the person's face. Watch out that the tree does not "stick out" from the head of the model, etc. Focusing when shooting a portrait - on the eyes, they have the maximum sharpness in such a picture.
- To properly make a landscape type photo,divert the sky two-thirds of the entire plane (here again the cross section works). Diagonal lines will bring into the picture vivacity, making it more interesting - this also applies to still lifes. Try not to fill the horizon, this immediately reduces the overall level of quality of the landscape.
- Try different angles, experiment withlight, play with contrast when processing. Learn from renowned pros, examining and studying their work - feel free to copy. However, at the same time, develop your own methods, form your own, individual style of shooting - so that you can be recognized only by looking at the work.
