Imagine the grid in your viewfinder Think of eye flow If it feels cluttered it is cluttered Change your angle Don’t be afraid to tilt your camera! Change the field of view(wide narrow) Think of photos you’ve seen before Move fast so you don’t miss the shot!
Find something to set or hold camera to stabilize it Hold your breath Hold your arms close to your body Strike a pose Adjust the way you hold your camera Use flash diffuse filter(see later slide)
Scan with your eyes for a target, always look for shots Find one? No time to think? Snap it fast! You (I) can still edit it later! Don’t be shy or formal, take it! The best photos are the ones that are taken completely off guard If you are too shy to get closer distance is fine, keep the rules in mind we can edit it later. Tilt the camera, sometimes hitting an angle can be very effective. Crouch, stand on your tippy toes, even blind shot it!
Don’t Ask! Especially don’t ask! Don’t wait Don’t fear Don’t disturb Don’t worry Don’t waste your battery Don’t skimp on the photos Don’t be afraid of manual actions Don’t invade personal space
The point is to get the event as if someone else was there Take it faster than they can react! If you feel emotional try to make the photo emotional Purity with attention to artistic methods Never stage! Keep your camera on hand at all times Bring extra batteries if possible Don’t forget what the main event is Sometimes the people can be beneficial to the subject Keep moving, people don’t need to talk to you
