5 Unique Tips For Beginner Product Photographer
September 5, 2018
Hey guys I’m sort of and in this blog post I will give you five tips that you should know as a beginner in photography. Now before I start the blog post remember that these are just simply guidelines that will help you to enhance your photography as a beginner and you need to hair or learn Photo Background Editor. So without wasting any time let’s get into it.
Shoot in Manual Mode:
So the first tip is to shoot in manual mode. Now when you’re shooting in auto mode the camera does all the painting you are only clicking the shutter button and taking the image and basically the camera does not provide you the complete control over the image but when you are shooting in manual mode you are having complete control over the image.
Basically you can control the motion you can control the depth of field and you can create different creative images which you can do when you’re shooting in auto mode. So manual mode can be difficult when you’re new into photography because there are various overwhelming settings like aperture shutter speed ISO white balance and no various other settings which can be a bit difficult to understand.
But before start taking photograph you should switch to manual mode as soon as possible because the type of images which you can create in manual mode is much better and you have way better control over your images as in manual mode.
Keep practicing shooting in manual mode and eventually in couple of weeks or a month you will be very good with manual mode.
Shoot In RAW:
The second tip is to shoot in RAW. The chances are that you’re shooting in JPEG but our DSLRs allow us to shoot in JPEG and also raw. Let me give you an example so that you understand what JPEG and RAW is. JPEG is like a cooked food which is cooked by the camera and given to you so if you want to change the taste of the food basically the taste of the food here means the look of the image you can change it a bit but you don’t have the complete control since the food is already cooked.
But when you’re shooting in raw the camera is providing you raw ingredients so that you can cook it by yourself what I mean again is you can change the overall look of the image.
You have much more details in highlights you have much more details in shadows and overall you have much more control over the image. Basically when you take this raw file into softwares like Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop which is again a very great software for editing RAW files so there is greater flexibility for shooting in RAW. You can also change certain things like highlights shadows and contrast in JPEG but again the quality won’t be similar when you’re shooting in RAW. In raw you will have much more details less noise and overall a better image quality so start shooting in draw and if you want to learn how to edit the RAW files watch some YouTube videos or read some blogs.
Use Different Compositions:
The third tip is to use different compositions. When I was new into photography I used to always divide my frames into half like suppose I have half land and half sky I always used to divide it into two and I used to find my images boring so I did a bit of research and I found out why my images are turning out to be boring the reason behind it was I was using boring compositions.
I was not experimenting with different compositions and when it comes to composition there’s the dinner again various rules like you have “rule of thirds”. Basically what is rule of thirds is you take the whole stream and you divide the whole frame into three equal parts horizontally and vertically and you place the subject of interest into any of the four intersection points this not only creates a better composition but also draws the human eye to that subject and creates a better dynamic image.
So “rule of thirds” is one composition technique the second technique that you can use is leading lines. Leading lines are natural lines in your image in your frame that will guide the human eye to the particular subject. This work great and a very dynamic now it is not wrong to divide your frames into half especially when you’re having symmetry in your images. When you’re shooting reflections dividing your frame into half can be a great idea you know composition is a very subjective thing and there are no hard and fast rules for composition you know.
You can try experimenting you can divide your frames into half as well if you think that might lead to a better image but the whole point is to use and experiment with different compositions and create better looking dynamic images.
Expose For Highlights:
The fourth tip is to expose for highlights when you’re shooting. I remember when I was shooting the fun for the first time I was looking to the viewfinder and everything looked picture-perfect but when I took a picture I saw that my shadows were properly exposed but my highlights were completely blown out were completely white and the reason behind that was I expose for shadows and in high-contrast scenes in the time of sunset sunrise or anything that has very high contrast very bright highlights and dark shadows.
I would always recommend that you should shoot and expose for highlights when you expose for highlights. You might have dark shadows in your image but since our shooting in draw you can always take out all the details in the post-processing. But if you lost the highlights if you over click the highlights basically you can’t do anything you can’t recover the over clip highlights irrespective of what software using or whether you’re shooting in RAW. So you should always expose for highlights and bring out the shadows and create better images with as much details as possible. The first step is to increase ISO only when necessary.
Basically increasing ISO is necessary when you have dim situations or where the amount of light is less but increasing ISO will introduce the greens and the noise and overall effect the image quality.
Now you have other options instead of increasing ISO you can increase the aperture you can increase the shutter speed and basically increase the amount of light that is coming into the image sensor and get a brighter image increasing ISO is not a bad idea then you can’t increase the aperture or shutter speed suppose you’re in dim situation and you’re shooting handheld and you want a large depth of field then you have to increase the ISO.
But if you have options of shooting on a tripod and if you have options of increasing the aperture you should always try different options because if you’re shooting at a lower ISO you will not only get a cleaner E-commerce Photo image but also a sharper image and overall a better looking image. So remember that these tips are just guidelines and simple tips for you as a beginner and this will help you to enhance and improve your photography.
