There’s a whole lot more to creating a great shot than just aiming the camera and clicking the shutter button. While cameras handle most of the technical chores for you, the subtle issues that separate great photos from ordinary snapshots must be learned by experience and formed into habits.
Experience is a respectable way to look at “mistakes.” Mistakes are a natural part of learning. But unless mistakes are recognized and corrected, they become bad habits. Recognizing mistakes and correcting them is the only way that good and productive habits can be learned.
Think of this session as a shortcut to experience. You will learn these photographic practices eventually; but here’s you chance to learn them the easy way.
This book presents sixteen effective practices that will transform your shooting from mere documented events into genuine expressions of art, composition, and emotion.
Photography is less about cameras the mechanics of the process and more about the art of capturing emotion. Think about it; almost every memorable picture has an emotional baseline. The capturing and portraying of an emotion is the common thread woven through all effective photographs.
The practices that effective photographers use to portray these emotions are as varied as the photographers themselves, but they all share certain base traits. This book presents sixteen of these traits. Practice these habits consciously for a couple of weeks and your casual snapshots will transform into effective photographic statements.
This nine-part Core Elements of Good Photography Series will spotlight the key issues and practices behind successful photography.
