When taking pictures there are so many things to think about, settings to learn, technic to master. Earlier I was super conscious about this, always trying to get things “right”. Sadly, it usually resulted in me over-thinking it and giving up as soon as I didn’t manage to get it right.
Clearly this was frustrating, and it almost ruined my passion for photograpy. In order to fix this, I had to change my perception on what taking pictures really was and changing focus my focus.
Now, when I take pictures, I try to focus on the motive and the story I want to tell, and forget the “rules”. My aim is to play around and try different ways of capturing the motive.
I get a lot of inspiration from Digital-Photograpy-School.com, a site that features great tutorials, tips and guides. Below I have tried to follow some of their advises on how to take better portraits.
Your turn – What do you focus on taking pictures? If anyone has any good guides or tips on how to (easily) improve the techics of photography, I’d love to hear them 🙂
