Improve Your Perspective Skills

Image
The most important job is to create a strong & powerful perspective in your photography. It takes too much time to create a strong perspective but your regular shooting practice and experiment will evolve a better creative sense in your photography. Beginner photographers are hardly connected with better perspective photographs. They are only concerned with the vivid colours of the photos. On the other side, your impatient attitude of pressing the shutter button will never support you. Have patience before pressing the shutter button. Keep observing the scene and keep changing your position to shoot will help you to choose a better perspective shot. Better perspective means your different  creative  way of thinking, understanding the better side of the subject, capturing the new language of the subject and then delivering the final photograph to your viewers. There are a few important tips which may help to create better perspective in your photographs Have patience, create a scene

Powerful PERSPECTIVE creates Powerful PHOTOGRAPHY

Image
  What is perspective in photography? A perspective plays a major role in photography, holding your viewers for a long time on a single image. A perspective means a strong sense of DEPTH and spatial relationship between an object with an image. Photographers shoot a two-dimensional image and create a three-dimensional scene and create a strong sense of depth. A strong perspective creates a better image, and better powerful compositions, and holds your viewer so along. One must work on it.   As per my knowledge, there are a few types of powerful perspectives which might have given strong a composition, and a strong sense of depth to your image.  Linear Perspective   Converging lines to show the depth in a frame means Two parallel and feel like meeting at a vanishing point. It's quite a common perspective in photography. You just have seen so many images of the two roads meeting at the horizon.  Overlap perspective   Any layers or several layers are visible in your frame and overlap

Theory of the FOCUS, AREA-modes

Image
  The most important task is to choose the correct area mode to focus your subject. Based on your correct decision you get a better result. I always mention in my blog that thinks before you press your shutter button. Because you must know your subject, your autofocus setting etc Suppose you choose more focusing points like D9, D21, and D51 so it's better to cover the larger area, moving subject, sports, vehicles etc. Autofocus area mode comes in a picture when you tell your camera to use all those focusing points for better stunning images. However, the important thing is that your autofocus system is made up of  focusing points , which correspond to regions that your camera can focus on. Area modes are having few better options to focus your subject. I suggest choosing all the options one by one to see the difference in the results. This will educate you in a better way.  Single-point AF Area mode: When you are shooting a stationary subject or non-moving subject. Not good for tr

Theory of the FOCUS, Single, Continuous & AutoFOCUS options

Image
There are multiple focus points in your DSLRs, each option is going to scare you until or unless you do not understand all the focus options deeply. It is advisable to understand each option one by one thoroughly. I started photography a long time back. I choose the one focus option to shoot for the whole shooting day with no change in focus option. This small and regular photography exercise helped me a lot. I had lots of photographs to compare with other focus options. It helped me to understand all the focus options. The beginner photographers must maintain the folder on their computer by naming the single focus option, continuous focus option etc so that they need not find out the focus option's photographs.  Instruction - Don't be in a hurry to learn every focus option in one go. It takes time. More time and more patience give more and better understanding. You must train yourself gradually to grasp the single-focus option and focusing the topic in a better way.  Single fo

Theory of the FOCUS

Image
In the world of photography, focus plays a significant role in capturing images. Focus decide what is a story, though behind the photographs, introduced the photographer's style. Beginner photographers are always confused about using which focus mode has to be used to shoot.  Every camera manufacturer has given different theories for their DSLRs camera. Which confuse all beginner photographer. But camera manufacturers are right at their place because they have to introduce something new technology to capture customer attention. But still, the confusion exists here, which focus mode has to be used before we shoot.  A small exercise we all must do, don't worry it's not about physical exercise. It is just to set your camera's setting before the shoot. You must know about the shoot in advance, what we are going to shoot like Is it moving subject like an animal, bird, running bike etc  It is a stationary subject like a product shoot, monument, building etc Is it both Moving

Basics of Wildlife Photography

Image
The word WILDLIFE Sound very adventurous to beginners, mobile, hobbyists and even pro photographers too, who have not chosen this wildlife genre. Now, why does this genre look very adventurous? The answer is quite interesting and easy because  It is close to nature, animals and different life experiences where life is peaceful even without urban facilities. Many beginner photographers avoid this genre because of its expensive nature like expensive zoom lenses, travelling and safari expenses, accommodations and food etc. this hidden obstacle always stops them to choose this genre. Here, I would like to mention that they are right at their point. Beginner photographers are mostly young and living life with their pocket money and for them managing all these expenses is a very tough job. I am writing this article specially for them and how this small article may help them to shoot wildlife animals.  Important Information - Wildlife photography does not mean shooting only tigers, elephants,

Real Estate Photography Is Crucial JOB

Image
  Real estate is one of the highly creative photography genres. Many photographers miss this genre, but I would like to mention here this is one of the highest-paying photography genres. This genre required lots of pre-planning before the shoot. This pre-planning required highly creative treatment, finer nuances to shoot, and lots of finishing details of the property.  There is a lot of photography equipment are involved in this shoot, please note one lens cannot shoot the entire property. You have to manage wide to zoom lenses to capture wide shots, close shots, details of the property's architectural design, door designs, door knob, roof, rooms, staircase, flooring, windows, bathroom, drawing room, dining hall, bar, furniture etc. Your shoot will create a demand for the buyers or customers.  As you know about which basic photography kit is required to shoot. Well, once again, I am mentioning it below.  A tripod Wide and zoom lens Filters Laptop to see the results Strobe lights (c

Which is your common mistake?

Image
  There are many beginner/pro photographers following the same common mistake for so long and some of them are not aware of their common mistakes. Mistakes are common actions of all human beings. To err is human.  Photography is fully loaded with camera features, light conditions, creative aspects, editing skills, technicality etc If you miss controlling even a single point then there are many chances to scrap your photograph. But always remember that no learning is without mistakes.  let's point out a few common mistakes  Exposure issue - When choosing the wrong choose aperture. Hardly handling exposure features or settings.  Focusing - most of the time, most of the photos are out of focus. It cannot be edited at all.   Background- beginner photographers are always in a hurry to shoot and forget to notice the background which is full of distractions.   Over editing - When fewer editing skills spoil the image. Must go for proper editing courses.  Pre and post-homework  - When reach

RAW vs JPEG Format

Image
  Many beginner photographers are confused about the Raw & Jpeg format. Many of them like to shoot in jpeg format and avoid shooting in Raw. There is a simple reason for unawareness of RAW format. let us understand the Raw and Jpeg format and which is better than the others. Advantages and disadvantages of both file formats.   What is RAW - This is an uncompressed file of the image. The camera even captures all the minute details of the scene and produces better image details. The RAW format is a negative file format of the image. Earlier (No digital world was introduced) there was a film role available to shoot the photos. Once the photo shoot is done the photographer carries the film role to develop the role. Now developers convert that negative role to positive photos and return all the photos negative to the photographer and these negative roles can produce positive images many times. All those photographers used to save all those negatives for future prints. Now in this digita

Choose to make a photograph then taking a photograph.

Image
  We have two categories of photography. One is, who takes the pictures. The second is, Who makes the photograph. There is a big difference between taking a photograph and making a photograph. It is a very interesting discussion about making a photograph rather than taking a photograph. Some selfy lovers always take a photograph from their upgraded mobile phone and share it with friends & family for fun.  What about taking Photographs - Taking a photograph means you take out your camera, DSLRs etc and shoot the scene, and subject as it is looking to you. There are no creatives added, no extra pain, no extra content, no planning, and no technical consideration for a better photograph. They only shoot only for the fun and It is just a fun-loving activity not more than this. This category proclaimed their mobile phone is better than DSLR photography but it is just a MYTH. What about making photographs - Making a photograph means you add better content to the photograph.  You a

Shooting people while travel photography

When you are planning to go for travel photography. Which are the most interesting subjects to shoot? While travelling for photography or photo tours, I have noticed many beginner photographers taking an interest in shooting these common subjects. Park, garden, flowers, monument, road, fence, trees, vehicles, zebra crossing, mountains, and other common subjects. Here! I am not complaining about their observations to shoot. Whatever they like, they shoot? That is their decision to shoot.  Now, what is the most interesting content are left to shoot? That is none other than the PEOPLE and their interesting, funny, stupid, angry expressions.  Those moments demand your immediate action to shoot. That may add good content and stories to your photographs. A simple fraction of a second can miss that shot or any historical photographs.  How to be quick to shoot? How do behave in that situation and what are other characteristics to shoot those people to create beautiful stories. Also, I

On the other hand, It's also known as interiors and exteriors photography  (visit my website - https://www.prasenjeetgautam.com/interiors-exteriors). now it is the photographer's job to create a story through the building, historical monuments etc  How to start & explore - There are end numbers of buildings surrounding your location for example corporate buildings. government building, historical monuments (Forts, Tourist places, Archaeological parks, old design buildings) You can shoot end number of times, in different weather conditions, morning time, evening time, rain etc  Few tips to follow Carry less equipment to shoot, and avoid many lenses, and tripods, which can cause you a problem.

Feedback Matters A lot ?

Image
What is the  most responsible factor that promotes your photography level at its best? There are a lot of factors which help your photography skills. Like your technical knowledge, creative aspect, understanding of light and subject, good quality equipment, client handling and delivery etc. There are so many factors involved in a successful photographer's career. I am talking about that factor, which is always missing from the photographer's to-do list is none other than FEEDBACK.  What is feedback?  Now feedback becomes the strong referral. We must use the feedback option as a marketing tool kit to get more business projects. But when you interact with photographers and ask them to show customer feedback. I assure you there will be 2 out of 10 photographers who might be having this feedback in writing.  Sometimes photographers mention in their discussion that we are only interested in our balance payment then the customer is happy with us. But this is not acceptable at
