Equipment, sets, software are all together, why the photos still look soulless?
How to make photos have a soul? A photo with a soul is like a storyteller, helping you remember the moment through the angle the photo shows. Here are a few tips that may help you.
1 Press the shutter furiously, strict selection
All photographers will tell you clearly, tired of photography projects are often shooting dolls, because they are the most unpredictable, uncontrollable group of creatures. That is, they will not listen to your command if you want to shoot them when you give them a big big smile.
So, when you intuit that there may be a good picture in front of you, you must immediately raise the camera and press the shutter without thinking. I sometimes eat or do other things when suddenly feel that there is material to shoot, will immediately drop what they are doing to speed to find the camera back to try to capture. If there is no camera at the time, then quickly use the phone to shoot, after all, the photo of that moment in the past will never appear again.
After shooting a bunch of photos with a high repetition rate is the work of screening. Professional photographers know that it takes a hundred photos to come up with a good photo, so to shoot as much as possible, the threshold for selecting photos should be set as high as possible.
Usually, the same pose is shot countless, each with subtle differences, and finally to choose a more satisfying expression, action, composition.
2 Let your body and the baby's world parallel
Most of the time the baby is either lying down or lying on his back, occasionally sitting is also very low height. If you take pictures when you refuse to let yourself follow the ground, it is also not to catch a good angle.
Try squatting or completely bend down, or even lying on the ground, so that their height parallel to the baby, the camera to the ground to shoot the baby, there may be a different picture oh.
Baby lying on the muslin cotton bed blanket on the grass, I also lying on the grass and put the phone vertically in the grass to take such an angle of the picture, is not to feel that immediately take you into the baby's world, if you stand or sit to shoot him, never see the baby's perspective.
3 Portraits can also not show their faces
I know that every parent can look at their baby's little face for a million years will not get tired of it, and portraits seem not to shoot the face also do not know what else to shoot. But maybe sometimes the art of not taking pictures of the face may work better.
Do not wait for the baby's face to the camera and then press the shutter, so you will miss a lot of more exciting moments.
Without a figurative face, the picture is easy to give more room for imagination.
Focus does not always have to be only on the face, focus on other details to bokeh the face also has a different artistic effect.
4 Life scenes are always the most story
Shoot the baby the most moving there are other family members involved in some life scenes, it is a record of the story, full of the real interaction between humans: the meeting of eyes, physical communication, the baby and adult figurative sense of difference If you can catch some of these images from time to time, will become the most valuable memories! Treasured photos. All the scenes in life photos, as long as you carefully observe, everywhere is worth treasuring the picture!
I hope your shots capture the cuteness of your baby!
