Photography is like an art to retain the beauty of something you want to see for a long time. You have to capture your scene accurately to have a better photo. Only professionals can do that, Right? However, as an amateur, you can avoid certain photography mistakes.
Take a look below what you need to avoid having a better photo.
Subject and Focus:
The first photography mistake is missing the subject. Photos need subjects along with its surroundings, just like a leading character of a movie. Focus is something you wish to lay emphasis on. Lack of focus makes the photo blur to the viewers and fails to convey the story.
Abrupt cut off necessary elements:
As an amateur, you should decide what you want in your photos. You can’t cut off anything abruptly which might seem incomplete later. While taking a picture of a man, you can’t cut his limbs off. Not likely you can include everything which might create an obstacle, such as a pole or a tree in front of the man.
Crooked Horizon: When you are taking pictures of horizontal elements, make sure the lines are straight. Otherwise, the photos might not feel natural.
Compositions are about placing your elements.
Rule of Third: Always having your subject in the center is a tiresome trait. To avoid that you can follow the concept of ‘Rule of Third’. It is to divide the desired image into 3 sections horizontally and vertically which will contain total 9 boxes equally with having 4 intersections. You can set your subject in any of those intersections.
Framing: Framing is about creating a frame within a frame by using elements you want to keep into your photo that balances it to be unique or realistic.
Space: Another mistake is not to provide space around the subject or positive space. The space around the subject is known as negative space. Using negative space will help you to beautify the picture.
Over-processing your image is a common photography mistake. You may think that it will make the picture lucrative but that’s not the case always. It rather shrinks the natural outlook of the image.
Making mistakes is totally unintentional and not a big deal. You can learn from your mistakes to become like professionals.
