6 Tips for Telling Stories with Your Photos
We can all agree that special moments require great photos - birthday celebrations, spring blossoms or fall leaves, your yard in full bloom. Capturing the essence of a scene requires a bit of practice. Here are some great tips to get you started.
Tell a Story with Your Photos
Use the Rule of Thirds. Imagine splitting your screen into thirds - horizontally & vertically. Align prominent points along the lines or intersections.
Portrait or Macro Mode - Use your camera or phone's special features to make images in the front appear clearly and fuzzy behind.
Unique angles - squat down to get a "bug's eye" view or stand above for a "bird's eye" view of the subject
Use the sun and shadows to your advantage
Notice where your eye will travel within the frame/photo. Try to move the eye through the photo in a diagonal line.
Crop & edit so your viewer will see the amazing moment you experienced through your eyes
