POLISHED

From time to time, I will give some tips based on which I think the compositions can be improved. I stress a lot on compositions. And perhaps for me, its the perfect belend of each element in the rame that defines a great photograph.

So starting here is a line I often live by.
**PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT TO KEEP IN THE FRAME, ITS ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT TO KEEP OUT OF THE FRAME".

As amateur photographers we have this liking for keeping everything in the frame.

When you shoot a pic, analyse it for a while. Always ask yourself a few questions.

Like if we take this shot,
Will the anvil in comlpete, make the image better? (I would either have it in the frame, or not have it. There is no middle state when composing shots).

Will the man's full body make a difference in the frame?

You say polished? I can hardly make out the shoe in the frame. So, will taking the picture from a lower angle make a difference.

These questions and similar questions, when you do for each element in the frame, you open up what artists and designers often call the third eye. This is basically a critical vision for anything that you see around.

And this comes with practice. Day in and day out. I hope you are able to do it a lot more!

Cheers!

hmmm Kshitiz, thanks I think I toolearnt here something from what I do not want in the frame,

Kshitiz Anand said...

My point was not at the title at all :).
And neither at the main guy in the subject. Polished is a decent title I think. I was just being critical about it.

I was trying to bring your attention to the other finer details in the frame.

You can call me anything as you wish :)
Cheers!

raunaq said...

the subject and the smile , have really added nuffin to the shot rather destroyed it.!
bt still,
if you say..
"happy of small things", if this be the title, then one will tihnk that the person has bee focused upon..=]
so, basically..!!
Kshitiz dude, is ryt..!
