Tips for Great Photography Part One!

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.
