Still trying to find out who took this photograph. Found it on my travels around the internet and felt instantly inspired. I cant imagine I will ever be a good enough photographer to take a shot like this myself but, there’s no harm in inspiring and trying! Gorgeous shot. Full credit to the photographer that managed to grab the shot (and to the ‘dude’ that grabbed the board).

Useful Photography Tips That Anyone Can Use

You’ve decided that you desire to start photography or you desire to take better pictures. This is great timing! The tips in this article will get you on your way to taking great pictures.

One of the first things you should learn is how sharpness affects your photographs. Generally, a camera’s standard settings place the sharpest focus on subjects in the middle area of the frame. Sharpness is not as high around the edges of a picture.

Choose only the best photos to showcase or display. Don’t show everyone or all of the exact same subject. Those viewing your photos are sure to quickly bore from seeing the same subject repeatedly. Be fresh, and try different kinds of photography.

Put something in the front of your landscape pictures to make them more appealing. Have something simple, such as a leaf or rock, for an extra view in the photo. This helps emphasize the main focal point, along with directing the viewers’ eyes around the frame.

You can even compare photographs of the same subject with another photographer and discuss the differences.

Don’t just assume you do not need to use a flash outdoors. Bright sun could cause deep facial shadows to form. You might have a camera advanced enough to include a “fill flash” feature; this is just the place you want to use it. This will penetrate the face’s deep folds.
