About Taking Immortal Photos

It is up to you, but in this section, you will get some inspiration you can use to formulate your own style. The beauty of photography is that it is solitary and therefore personal; you are the creator of the rules. Just see below to get the picture:

  • Details: It cannot be stressed enough, details is what makes immortal photography. Open your eyes for all the details around you. Imagine that someone gave you a box of chocolates with 25 options. Which one do you pick up and why? Probably because it stood out, it looked different from the rest and that is why you liked it. Maybe it was the shining packaging, or symmetrical mix of white and black chocolate. Looks yummy. Your photography has to be like that. It has to do with you not someone else. Do not be average.
  • Lines: They are your best friends; they give your photo depth and structure. Plus, they work with you while you are editing the photo. For the photo to look attractive, the lines should mean something. They could lead to somewhere, limit or emphasize an object in the photo. Lines are comfortable for the eyes, so when someone look at your photos they can get a sense of order, if that is what you are looking for. How to manage the lines? It has to do with how you hold your camera and how you even stand.
  • Fitting: There are many resources about the rule of thirds, it is suggested that you look it up and even study it. Why? The rule of thirds just works, and they are the cornerstone that help you capture minute details. As you know, details are paramount to photography.
  • Color: Color coordination is an obsession for some. You do not have to obsess about it, but it will greatly enhance your photography and your life. Learn to love colors so you can work with them effectively. You do not notice it instantaneously, but color plays a significant role in your life. One thing is to be not intimidated by colors. Sometimes, you will find it hard to make your colors speak, but keep trying teaching them how to speak your language. Keep adjusting color correction and saturation until it becomes second nature. If you still struggle, you still have the editing stage where you can make those colors really show. A lack of color altogether like in street photography can show much more than a colored picture. It is always good to keep that in mind.

Keep an open mind, while there are some fundamentals you need to obey, you are allowed to break the rules and create new ones. As long as your photography is beautiful, no one can blame you for doing a good job. The beauty of photography is that you can do it with fancy gear or a smart phone camera. You can do it anywhere, anytime. Whether you’re at home doing chores or at the park with friends, photography is always appropriate. Stay out of trouble and do not make someone angry. Always ask for permission before taking a photo of someone, as this might be illegal in some places.

Most of all keep shooting!

The Best Places to Shoot

The beauty of photography is that it is not bound by space and time. If you like it shoot it, you are not limited by the outside world; you are limited by your imagination. Photography is beautiful in that way. Try to find the beauty everywhere, and when you see it, do not let it slip away capture it with your camera. As mentioned above, photography opens your eye to completely new worlds. It gives you a mystic ability to touch the spirits with your camera.

A good practicing ground would be old (or new) buildings since you they can tell many stories from different angles. You can be the one who immortalize those stories through your photography. Pay attention to the details, photography is about the details. The ability to capture those details is what makes artists, and they can be your blueprint. It is what you see, and nobody else can. Think about it we live in a world of details, even when they are apparently invisible, they are still there waiting to be brought to the light. To create your style, you need to find those details and present them in their purest form.

Just remember, while editing is an integral part of the process. Do not overdo it. Like computer programmers like to say K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple Stupid!

The Beauty of Photography

Photography is a potent way to open your eyes to the beauty around you; it is a way of appreciating life as it is. It gives your eyes a superpower ability to see what is hidden and yet in front of your face. The beauty of photography is not in just opening your eyes to the hidden worlds all around you, it gives you a method to capture them and keep the memory associated with them forever. It gives you the ability to travel in time and perceive the world in an entirely new way you have never even though existed.

Photography Gear

What has not to like about photography? When it comes to photography gear, it is not about the tools themselves, it is about your natural gift. Yes, they can be expensive, but that is not a reason to throw the baby with bath water. A modest Nikon D5200 with the kit lens does a brilliant job and it does not cost too much. Even your iPhone could be a handy tool to use while on the move.

It is not how expensive your camera is, it is about how you express yourself with what you got. The fanciest gear will not help you, if you do not have the passion. At the beginning, it is not hard work, it is as simple as taking a selfie and as you develop your talents, you will begin to see the picture and the projector.
