Modern cameras, even high-end DSLRs, are physically nothing more than an advanced version of the camera obscura. Even the ancient Greeks were familiar with this optical gadget.
Do you still stick to the old rule of always taking photos standing with your back to the sun? It’s high time to break this habit as quickly as you can! To take really good pictures you actually need to confront the light quite often.
Did you also start the new year with a handful of good intentions? And did you stick to them? Are you taking them seriously, or have you postponed “more exercise, more salad and less alcohol” to 2015?
A few weeks ago in our blog we posted a contribution regarding the most common mistakes. Are you, too, often not really satisfied with your pictures? Do you get the feeling that your photos are somehow lacking harmony? The cause is usually a composition that has not been thought out: the composition of the individual elements in the picture is not strong enough. The linear composition does not stand out clearly.
Those who make no mistakes learn nothing! This saying, which definitely applies to all areas of life, is particularly pertinent when it comes to photography. Every photographer makes mistakes in some shape or form. And that’s good! Because every mistake is an opportunity to learn something, and keep improving.
