You know we have gone through a lot of articles and tips on how to do photography. Now, I would like to maybe, fine tune this so that your photos become more “alive”, or more exciting to you and to everyone who sees them. I realize that almost everyone who reads this blog regularly knows the rules to composition, and I will keep going over different ideas about that, but, here is some great ideas about how to make your photos even better:
FRAME YOUR PHOTOS:
See what you can do to “frame” your subject. Put something around your subject so that it seems to be highlighted even more. Do not overdo the framing, but make it natural:
When shooting something that has motion or movement with it, allow the subject to have something to move into. For example, this would be better if the subject was not in the center. If something was moving, have some area in the frame of the photo to move into. See examples:
Our brain perceives information from left to right, so it’s best to position all the important stuff in the right side of the frame.
Try taking photos from a different angle. Instead of taking pictures standing up, get down to the level of the subject, if it’s a pet or child. You will find a different story to your photo:
There are two spaces in every image:
Don’t forget to keep an eye on what is happening in the negative space; you want it to emphasize your main subject, not cramp it.
Depth will give your shot a more three-dimensional and rich feel. There are few features that can help you achieve it:
When taking a scenic shot, that has depth, add something in the foreground. If you add something in the foreground, your viewers will feel like they can relate to the size and depth of the picture more.
SHADOWS AND REFLECTIONS:
Use these elements to make your picture more interesting and dramatic. You can create a visual ’dialogue’ between the subject and its reflection (shadow).
THE GOLDEN HOUR, AND THE BLUE HOUR:
The “Golden Hour” is my favorite time to shoot. It is the one hour before sunset. The colors have gone to a golden color in the sky and the colors everywhere are a nice warm golden hue. It really warms things up and makes things very pleasant.
THE GOLDEN HOUR:
This is the time when the sun has set, or just before the sun comes up. The light is predominately blue. Check it out: This is often called twilight:
There are two kinds of pet owners in the world, the dog lover and the cat owner. Extremely high ownership in both sides. Why? Because these two pets have a unique way of showing love back to their owners, unlike a bird or a snake or a turtle (although there may be people who disagree). But really, they snuggle, they love hanging around their owners, they adore their relationship with their owners and they are more of a true friend than a friend. They will never betray you. It is no wonder that these pets are well loved by their owners.
Many people are allergic to cats, and dogs are the other option. But, those who are not allergic to cats have a wonderful time with cats. When they are young and just kittens, they can entertain you for hours with their playful antics. They will attack your toes for no reason at all. They can watch birds in the window sill for hours and hours. They will often find yarn or something small and chase it and play catch with it until they think it is dead. It is amazing their fun playful ways. And it is at this time the best to start capturing their cute playfulness.
2- The other thing that you will love to take pictures of is almost like taking pictures of a baby when they are sleeping. For some reason, they are just adorable when they are asleep just like a little human baby. You just can’t help but think that a kitten isn’t one of the most adorable things when they are asleep. When you take a picture of a kitten, they may be just as a little child and wake up by the noise of a camera. If you can get a bigger lens and not be so close to the kitten, then perhaps you won’t wake up the kitten with the noise. So, be aware of that. But, getting in close to the kitten is always something special:
3- But as your cat gets older, and it gets done with that playful part of life, and it tends to just be your friend, it is important to capture those moments when it seems like you can relate to it becoming an adult, like you! When it just wants to hang out with you, and snuggle with you when you get home from work, or wherever. How do you do that when you are the one taking the pictures? Have someone else do it for you. Also, get pictures of what it does during the day when you are not snuggling:
4- The other key to taking great photos of your cat is to take a lot of photos. Cats will not pose for a photo like a dog. They will not do what you want them to do when you want them to do it. So, have your camera ready at all times. They will do the craziest things at any random moment. Some of the funniest things will be at the time when you least expect it. They will often jump a mile if they are scared and if you ever get a photo of that, you will be a genius. So, keep on trying and enjoy putting a whole album together of your favorite cat photos.
Here are a few more great cat photos that I thought were just the best:
Enjoy taking pictures of your cat. And you know everybody loves great pictures of cats.
