Lighting

Lighting

  • Soft light is usually best

  • Try to take outside shots

    between day break and 10 am

    and after 4 pm

  • Have your subject face the light with your back to the light

  • Bright lights can cause harsh shadows

  • For dramatic lighting, set your dial to night mode and force the flash off


How to ask permission to take someone s photograph

How to ask permission to take someone’s photograph

  • Ask permission if the person is the main subject of your photo

  • Getting ‘permission’ can mean different things in different situations – often it’s simply a matter of holding up your camera and smiling with a raised eyebrow. Other times you might actually ask but gesturing will usually be sufficient enough to get a nod or a shake of the head. I find that it’s quite rare to get knocked back from a friendly approach.

  • If it is a child, get permission from the parent but be extra careful here

  • “Keep in mind what you’d feel like if a stranger walked up to you in your neighborhood and asked for a photograph and act in a way that you’d want to be treated in that kind of situation.”


Self portraits

Self Portraits

  • taking self-portraits has several advantages: you'll always have a willing subject, and you may be able to interpret the "real you" better than others can.

  • Use a tripod or other stable base and set the self timer

  • You can also used reflective surfaces

  • Use your imagination! A self-portrait can reveal a lot about you, by including props and even other people that are meaningful in your life.
