There are times that you can snap a picture and it can turn out great or not so great… ever wonder why? Well here’s a few things to help you get a great one every time!
Rule of Thirds
The rule of thirds is where the object of focus takes up one to two thirds of the frame. In this picture the lighthouse is in one third while the ocean and sunset take up the other two thirds.
Here, as in the picture above, the red tulip takes up one third while the white take up the other two thirds.
Leading lines are to help draw or “lead” you into the picture. In this photo the lines from the bridge, boat, coastline, and even the clouds draw you deeper in.
As I explained above the lines create by the nature around seem to pull you in.
Depth of Field
Depth of field is in a sense a 3D touch. In order to have good depth of field you have to have at lest three stages to your picture, the foreground, middleground, and background. In this picture the first hay bale creates the foreground, the other hay bales create the middlegound, and the trees and horizon create the background. All these put together give it that feel of being 3D.
In this picture the depth of field is demonstrated with the people being the foreground, the tree as the middle ground and the hills as the background.
In all pay attention to things around you. Use these basic tips and tricks, and find new ways to enhance your already great pictures. And most importantly have FUN!!!
