In this tutorial I hope to teach you absolutely everything I can about professional photography, well, at least as much as I think you can learn from this.
Now. There are many techniques you need to learn when it comes to building a professional portfolio of pictures. Hopefully you get all the things you need to run a proper business the right way – get it right the first time.
I was in the back of a limousine the other day (cheers so much to Melbourne Limo Hire!) and noticed a couple of tourists using their shiny DSLRs the wrong way. That made me kinda irritated, although it really had absolutely nothing to do with me.
Now that you have your digital camera (really, any sort of camera could do), take it out of the box and test out your first couple of shots. Hopefully you get the basics down. Just read the instructions, or look up the necessary skills on the internet if you need extra help.
Let’s clear things up. If you need to set up some of the settings, just use full automatic. Honestly. Nobody will ever notice. If it will produce great shots most of the time, you should be good to go. Now if you have the proper tools to run your business, you will be fine.
If you are taking all these pictures to get all the light coming in. That’s the good news and you don’t have to worry about things being perfect. Some of the key goal need to be exposed. Don’t worry about things being perfect the first time, because it never happens. Get the exposure and the color right. Hopefully that helps you out. Contrast it over time and you’ll get a proper beating. So set the camera on full auto and just keep on reading the things you will do so well in.
They put up all the things in the middle of the frame and this will get you a lot of real estate all over the picture. If you do things the right way you will fill the subject instead of the background. Another common rookie mistake most people make is that when shooting people, they do not realize that their heads are always cocked to the side. This isn’t good. I hope you get to enjoy the benefits of this tutorial, so keep that in mind!
People can be extremely reluctant f you take a picture and don’t shoot it the right way. If upright is the best way to go, do that. If you want to do things horizontally, that’s good too.
Under very bright circumstances, you can often blur the lines a little and get away by being sneaky with your pictures. It is extremely important to hold the camera the right way. Hopefully this makes a valid point and makes sense.
The very last point I wan to make – taking pictures is pretty much a numbers game. The more you take, the better chance you have of finding a solid one. If you do the right thing you will do well. If you learn how to say no to the ugly photos (don’t worry we all take clankers from time to time) you will end up getting a proper job and being the right person to do things. Hopefully all of this makes sense! Let me know if you need help.
First of all, learn how to hold your camera securely, frame the picture, compose the shot in a particular way so that you don’t bore people to death.
