Tips to Take Good Pictures That Always Work

A while ago I was reviewing the photos I took on my last trip. I must admit that I am somewhat irregular taking photos, and whenever I consider the reason I reach the same conclusion: sometimes I do not pay all the attention I should and I do not take the photos “with love”. When I review what I have done I realize the moments in which I took the photos, the mistakes I made in each of them, and, above all, the reasons why, for my liking, some of the photos I take Which are clearly better than other photos of me.

Therefore, I wanted to make a reflection in this article about some tips that work for me and that will certainly work for you to take better photos when you go out with your camera next time. If you have two minutes I will tell you what they are. This one, rather than to make better photos, is not to make them worse or not to spoil them completely. And it happens to me frequently that I don’t check how I have the camera settings, even from session to session.

Because of the shooting modes I work with, I usually have controlled the aperture of the diaphragm and the exposure time that I use in my photos, but there are other elements such as ISO, exposure compensation or the light measurement mode that, for not adjusting them in each photo, there are times that I forget to check them. It is good that you apply a discipline of review of the controls of the camera to minimize the number of problems due to an incorrect configuration when taking the photos.

When I take photos, many times I focus on the main element of the photo and I forget to check if some unwanted element appears in the background of my photograph. I am so focused on getting what I want to forget everything else. My brain isolates the main detail of the rest of the elements within the frame at the time of taking the photos, but when I review the work on the computer I realize the error: in many photos elements appear that, far from being interesting, become annoying elements of distraction that ruin the work. Therefore, it is a good practice to check the background well beyond the center of interest of the photo to ensure that nothing comes out that should not appear in the photo.

This is one of the main problems of who starts in photography. We want to get too many things in our photos, and in the end we get so much that nothing is seen. Many experts say that a photograph should have a single center of interest. If you cannot clearly identify the center of interest when looking at a photo, the photo is probably better.

Therefore, if you doubt whether or not to include something in a photo, most of the time it is best not to include it. And to do so, you can get closer to what you really want to photograph, either yourself or using the zoom.

If you have several objectives in your photographic equipment, this problem will probably occur at some time. The objectives, depending on their characteristics, are usually designed to cover a theme or a series of them. There are especially advisable objectives for portraits, others for landscapes, others for macro. Each one has some characteristics that make it very good for that theme but it may not be so good for others, such as its focal point or aperture. Although it does not have to be an immovable rule, if you use a goal for what is intended you will probably be more satisfied.
