Keep it Simple 2

  1. Photography is supposed to be the simple process of capturing what you see in front of you, but today we have become obsessed with trying to make it difficult.
  2. Don’t listen to all the adverts that say we need every new gadget and app that can be squeezed into a modern camera, and that if we don’t have them all, we will produce inferior pictures.
  3. Keep it simple, until you know exactly what these add on features can do, don’t use them, put the camera on auto and let it produce very acceptable results without you having to worry about anything.
  4. Spend your time looking, and making sure that what you see on either the back of your camera or through the viewfinder is what you want to capture, move around until you have what you want in your view and then take your shot.
  5. Composition is the most important thing to concentrate on, not worrying about settings or numbers, as you learn more this side will develop naturally, but better composition will make the largest improvement to the results that you can get.
  6. Get in the right place, at the right time, and use your eyes first and your pictures will improve.
