Photo Tip Of The Week

Tips for Great Photography by Stacy LeClair

1.  Finding the right location-  Finding the right locations is imperative to a great shot!  Although many photographers don’t like to reveal this fact, it is true! Find a beautiful place and it’s hard not to take a good picture.

2.  Working with good lighting (studio, sunrise, sunset, storm lighting)-  Now that a great photographer has found a great location, they patiently wait for the light to illuminate their subject nicely.  With the combination of awesome lighting and a great location the results are rather stunning!

3.  Using a tripod for sharp images and less camera shake- A great photographer will know the importance of a sharp image.  Camera shake can cause a beautiful scene to look blurry or distorted.  Even with all the technical advances and image stabilization a tripod is still one of the most important tools for great photographers.  Start using one regularly and notice the difference!

4.  Extensive knowledge about their equipment-  How long does it take you to adjust your camera settings when the light is changing quickly?  A great photographer knows how to operate their settings accurately and efficiently when it’s necessary.  They end up with the shot!

5.  Working well with software and establishing a good workflow-  Software is used as an enhancement for an already well composed shot.  Great photographers use their software tastefully and artistically.

Are you looking to add spruce up your images?  Try taking your default setting from Auto White Balance to Cloudy for added color and warmth.  It’s an instantaneous and pleasing change for Landscapes and Sunsets.  Give it a shot, you’ll see!
