“The photos are stunning! Who captured these?” These were some of the phrases that I was listening to when I recently attended the photography exhibition and was mesmerized by the beauty of the pictures displayed. As a photophile, I wanted to know more about it. Seeing all the photographers gathered out there, my excitement knew no bounds.
And that’s where I started the journey of collecting tips about clicking, creating, and preserving good pictures. Most of them changed my life forever!
So let’s embark on the journey of clicking gorgeous shots!
- Lighting augments your shots – Lighting has to be on the top of the priority list if you want to capture an incredible image. It is not something that we usually see. With proper lighting, the subject is highlighted and becomes more presentable. Some of the best shots are taken during the sunrise or sunset. Amateur photographers try to take their photos in the middle of the day, which is not advisable.
- Composition – Always remember the rules of composition for getting the best out of the picture. In order to share images with the digital world, people tend to forget such regulations. Sometimes the subject should not really be in the center. So, assess the photos before uploading them. Re-shoot it if necessary.
- Background – You want to take your photography to the next level? Then do not forget to check the background of your picture. It is necessary to look for the subject and proper lighting, but what is behind the subject is also very important before actually clicking the image. “This picture could have been amazing if the car behind me was not there.” How many of us have gone through this thought? Most of us, right? So if you do not want to face a similar situation, then check the background and then click an entirely composed image.
- Learning how to zoom the pictures – Focus on a particular subject that will work as a center of attraction. This way, you will be able to click a better shot. For budding photographers, it has always been said that zooming in on a particular part is still the right thing to do.
These were some of the rules to make your images fascinating. Are we all sorted here? Let us dive into the editing part now!
Editing is also an art. With the help of some quick adjustments, you can make flawless pictures. Whether you want to adjust the contrast, sharpness, or darkness, Mac is always there to help you.
That is not all! Often, we just click the shots and keep piling them on our system till the system gets slow, or the problem of storage space pops up. Duplicate photos and files take up a lot of space. As many people nowadays own Mac, their system becomes slow when it becomes full of photos and files. To curb this problem, iCloud is there. You can transfer the content here as it keeps your content secure. You can try out these tips to get rid of duplicate files. But what if iCloud becomes full? Don’t worry! Every problem has a solution.
There are certain duplicate finder apps that not only just scan the duplicate photos but also delete them. Gemini 2 is one such duplicate file finder.
Good photography and editing skills will make you stand out from the crowd. You need to just practice and strengthen these skills with a device like Mac, and you are all set to go. After all, practice makes a man perfect!
