Due to the economic instability around the world caused by Coronavirus and other factors, there has been a drastic fall in the economy and people have drawn away from spending a lot of money in purchasing the right equipment to get the best result because they feel that with the way things are going, they need to save more money to match their income whilst dealing with the inflation of prices of the equipment and most importantly, their everyday need.
People presume that they need the latest iPhone or phone with a better rear and front camera to bring out the best product for photography. It’s not necessarily the device but how you are able to capture the moment and make it last in the best quality. Here are some points to capturing your favorite moments that bring happiness and pictures of your businesses to attract customers:
1. The perfect angle brings out the best proportion
Whilst taking pictures, it’s best to move around, if you are taking the pictures without a tripod stand at different degrees. If you want the object(s) or person(s) in the photo to look longer or taller, it’s best to bend down depending on how long or tall you want it to appear, and then tilt the camera upward. This angle makes movement in the pictures more dramatic. If you want them to appear closer, move towards the object or person and vice versa if you want them further.
Using tripods, in this case, reduces the possibility of creating more angles except if the camera is removed from the tripod and placed at a better spot. While taking portraits, it’s best to position the camera at the eye level or slightly lower especially for group portraits as it eliminates distortions from other parts of the body. For a portrait of one or two people, the camera should be postponed at the eye level of slightly higher because the number of persons in the picture is minimal.
2 Natural Lighting produces pictures with better quality
Artificial light is not required and good pictures should be taken outside because natural light increases its quality. The most attractive pictures are taken with natural light. There are two types of natural light: Soft light and hard light. Soft light occurs in the morning from 8 a.m to 9 am and in the evening from about 5 p.m to 6 pm. It is safe to say that this light occurs one to two hours after sunrise and two to three hours after sunset. Soft light on a cloudy day at the window reduces shadows and evens out skin tone. Hard light can be gotten at about 12pm. It helps to cast a shadow on the picture, whether it’s food, an object, or a person.
3. Body position determines contouring in pictures
For those into modeling or anyone who loves to take studio pictures, curving the body unnecessarily creates more contours in the picture and this doesn’t make the picture very nice. Simple poses or complex poses with good body positions makes a good photo.
4.The clearer the camera lens, the better the picture
When taking photos, you don’t need the latest high phone or camera to take good pictures. What is required is to clean the lens of your phone camera or digital camera and then you’re good to go.
- when taking food photos, add an element of nature to the photo. You can place a natural or an artificial green plan on the setting of the picture. it makes it look more colourful and pleasant to look upon.
- Neutral background colors are appropriate for taking good quality photos.
