Photographing is first of all a matter of looking and seeing. Photography makes it possible to document moments in your life so that later you can reminisce. Photos have the power to move you through time and to make distance irrelevant. The camera is subordinate. After all, it is the result that matters: the photo, a tangible memory. Such a photo says more about the photographer than about the camera used to take the photo. A good photo is a reflection of who you are at the moment that the shot is snapped. With a photo, you can show the world through your own eyes. Isn’t that wonderful?
What is most important?
To achieve a good photo, the most important factor is not the camera, but you – the photographer. The most cherished photos are often not the best photos taken, but the photos that affect your emotions. These photos you can take both with a single-lens reflex camera or a smartphone. At the end, the best camera is always the one you have with you.
View the world as a photo
Want to get the best out of yourself and your camera? It all starts with looking with more awareness. Try to see the world as a photo. Look at the light and observe how it changes in colour over the course of the day. See how the sun forms shadows and how that affects contrast and colour. Broaden your gaze – literally. Look upwards or alternatively downwards and experience then how the world really looks quite differently. Looking with more awareness means photographing with more awareness, making your photos far more expressive.
Five practical tips for better photos
Do you photograph with your smartphone?
Then certainly also read the tips below:
Tip 1: Clean lens
The simplest and most important tip: make sure that the lens of your smartphone is clean. A smartphone sits the entire day in your pocket or handbag where it easily gathers dust and dirt. Especially greasy fingerprints make your photos hazy. A bit of cleaning before starting to photograph makes an enormous difference.
Tip 2: Writing with light
Photography literally means ‘writing with light’. Light is an important element in achieving a good photo. Because the camera in your smartphone is less sensitive to light than a single-lens reflex camera, it is also important to make sure that you have enough light when you take photos. Always be aware of the light around you. With a smartphone, too little light not only creates noise (blurred grains in your photo), but also a blurred image. Therefore, always look for a way to catch as much light as possible. Stand by a window, step out of the shade or switch on a lamp. Look well around you and seek the most well-lit spot in your surroundings. Watch out when using a built-in flash: they usually do not flatter the photo.
Tip 3: Ban the zoom
It might seem very handy to use the zoom option in the camera of your smartphone. However, in general this works quite differently than the zoom in a single-lens reflex camera. Your smartphone usually has a ‘digital zoom’, which means that you blow up a part of your original photo. This is at the expense of quality: the photo is more grainy and less sharp. Therefore, afterwards you’re better off enlarging your photo later.
Tip 4: Steady your telephone
Your smartphone is light and easy to handle. Obviously very practical, but the lighter the camera, the harder it is to keep it steady. Every movement of your hand at the moment you take a photo will be noticeable in your photo. So make sure that you hold your smartphone as steady as possible to prevent blurred images. This is especially important if it is a bit dark. For example, you could support your smartphone on a low wall. Pressing your arms against your body and holding your breath when you take the photo also helps to keep the camera steady.
