Finding a simple backdrop is key element when wanting to make a statement.
People are often under the impression that things like, trees, water, or other natural objects are necessary for the background of their photo's to provide interest.
Let's all remember that it is WHAT is IN our photos that are speaking to our audience.
While a beautiful stream in the background provides a calming memory, feeling, or emotion, it is the SUBJECT you're focused on. If YOU are focused on the subject in your photo, what do you suppose your viewer is also looking at?
Try taking a photo today and purposely providing a blank background. (Easier said than done.)
Have fun with it and feel free to send me your images!
Traditional Film or DSLR
First of all let's just cover this detail.....Digital Single-Lens Reflex.
That's what it stands for. Not Diva Still Learning to Read.
Since it is 2010, most folks opt for these types of cameras because of the endless possibilities.
With a DSLR you can edit, upload, change lenses, add photo effects later, re size....need I say anymore?
I've had a lot of people approach me about teaching them to take better pictures with their DSLR.
Let's face it, picking up that nice big expensive camera for the first time is a great feeling. Taking that first picture is just as amazing....until you check the display.
Oh No! It's blurry, out of focus, to bright, to dark......was the lens cap actually ON?!This was my first reaction at least. It was horrible. Instantly frustrated, overwhelmed, and alone. (OK, not the alone part but for dramatic purposes, I just had to..hahaha) This is the moment where we realize perhaps we NEED to read the manual. Even at that, it's confusing. Almost as if we're trying to read a different language.
I am committing myself to deliver my readers some useful information to assist in the learning process.
As always, I'm gonna "Break It Down" to ya. In Jillian terms....and I pray you will then send me your pictures once things click. There's nothing better than to see the progress of ones talent.
(Plus, it makes me feel really special to receive emails addressed to ME)
