We’ve seen them all before; beautiful Tumblr photography, sunsets, focused pictures, quality pictures. You name it, the photos will have it. And although these pictures seem very hard to make, it’s actually very easy. All you have to do is put a mind set on something that interests you and bravo! You’ve got a whole theme of pictures that look super professional!
So how does one do it? I got you on this one. I’m not an awesome photographer, but I’ve got a professional Nikon camera that helps me with taking great pictures. But you don’t have to have a great camera to take good pictures. A normal camera is fine for anything and everything. A camera tip is to press halfway on the snapshot button before taking the picture; it’ll help a lot with focus. If your thinking of taking a blurry pic, just slightly move the camera at the halfway point before pressing down completely. It’ll give you a great effect.
You can take pictures of anything, but here’s a few tips to get you started.
- Go to a local park. Take pictures of flowers close-up, tree branches, pine tree leaves, sand grains, rocky paths, benches… anything that is focused and close-up looks great. If you want to take shoe pictures, the park is a great place to have a great background.
- In your house. Decorations are everywhere in your house. Got a couple cute pillows? Grab a gold necklace and drape it around, then snap a pic. The possibilities are endless. Blurry pictures are great in a homely environment.
- Restaurant. Not just the food, but the décor and bathroom lighting is amazing. Get your camera and head around, you’ll find some great stuff.
- Polaroid. Using a couple of these super cute pics, snap a picture of them in your hands like a deck of cards or scattered around a table. It helps if these polaroids are themed.
Remember, lighting is a big part of taking good pictures. Filters might ruin the quality of a picture if the themes don’t match. A grey sky doesn’t ruin photos, but a dark room does. Sky and cloud pictures are only cute when they look pretty; pink and purple, bright blue and white and dark blue with yellow skies are the best.
Like I said before, I’m not the best photographer. I can only tell you so much before you set on your way to the world of photos. Here’s a couple pics I took in a park. Including the one at the top of the post, I can only say one thing; sunshine is my favourite filter.
