Tips for Taking Photos
- Don’t be afraid to experiment – Try a new approach like shooting from a unique perspective or play with light and shadow
- Think outside the box – Don’t limit yourself to popular subject matter. What else can you shoot that might suggest the fall season?
- Photograph something you’re passionate about – What are your hobbies or particular interests? Maybe you have in-depth knowledge of or access to unique subject matter. Use your personal story to your advantage. Take the viewer someplace new.
- Create depth in your shots – Don’t forget to utilize the foreground and background in your images.
- Seek out the “golden hour” – Consider shooting outdoors during the last hour before sunset and the first hour after sunrise
- Composition is key – Think about how you are framing your images. Consider using the “rule of thirds” in photography.
