Becoming a good photographer involves a lot of experimentation with lighting and perspective. Hopefully this arrangement of tips and tricks will allow novice photographers to improve a great deal.
Your arms should be near your body when holding the camera, and make sure your hands are on the sides and bottom. Holding the camera in this way, you will reduce camera shake and make shots that are in clear focus. By cradling the camera from below, it will help to prevent you from dropping the camera accidentally.
Set your focus first on the camera and then offset the subject so it is not in the center of the shot. Having the subject centered in-frame is quite common; such photos are at a disadvantage when it comes to being memorable. An off-centered shot is likely to appear more interesting in the eyes of the viewer.
Try to hold steady when taking shots, it’ll prevent you from producing blurry photos. Slight movements can decrease the quality of a shot. Inhale deeply and hold it until you have released the shutter button.
When preparing to shoot some kind of wedding, try getting unexpected shots of little details to warm yourself up, like a makeup bag or a flower close up. It also allows you to catch a few hidden gems of details that might be overlooked when the event is finally underway.
A lot of the time you will have the main subject looking right at the camera. Get your subject to look away from the camera for a more unique shot. Tell them to focus on something that the camera can’t see. Another thing you can do is have the subject look at something in the frame, rather than at the camera itself.
