Great photography isn’t just about having a great camera, it is about the photographer’s skill, and practice. There is a big difference between been a gifted photographer and a skilled photographer. You might be gifted and not skilled. That is why I always advice that if you are gifted, you should try to earn a degree in photography.
There are some things you should know if you want to be a top rated photographer.
- Brightness is also known as exposure. It means how much bright you want your image to look so that it can maintain its natural appeal. However, getting and knowing the amount of brightness that is right for a photo can be quite tricky, but once you get the trick of knowing the right amount of brightness you need, you are one step ahead to becoming a great photographer. I would advise you to enroll for a photography course to learn more about brightness.
- When it comes to photography, light is the master and the photographer is the servant. Before you can take any great nature photo, you have to schedule your time according to weather conditions. Scheduling your time according to weather conditions doesn’t only apply when you are taking nature photos; it also applies in the studio environment. Before you can take a perfect photo in the studio, you have to have a great lighting. Getting the right lighting comes from consistent practice and determination. Although photo-editing tools are one of the easy ways to master how to use lighting, but you can’t completely master the use of lighting without correcting and guidance.
- For you to be a great photographer, you need great orientation on how to do things. There are so many times where the picture you shot is different from what you imagined it to be. This is as a result of flawed imagination. You need to go through trainings to be able to turn your imagination into reality. And of course, you will make lots of mistakes, but you would get better.
- Every photographer needs to learn about the composition of sizes, colors and of background elements that make the photo look very beautiful. The fact is that how elements are placed in respect to each other in a frame decides the end result of the photo.
