Photography ~ For People who Don’t Take Many Photos but Would Like to Do Something Nice Whenever They’re in an Aesthetically Pleasing Environment

Instead of going into the metaphysics of design or the actual physics of light, I’m going to dial it back and talk about something nice and simple: photography tips and tricks.

 

First

People always know this one but always tend to neglect and forget it—the rule of thirds. All you must imagine two sets of parallel lines that are perpendicular to each other. This will create a 3×3 grid. Now, all the rule of thirds says is that the best photos happen when your photo is divided up by those lines “nicely.” Usually, when doing this trick it’s best to have the center of focus be in the middle square, but some offset can give a pleasing result as well.

Panning your camera when taking a photo can create motion. This one is pretty self-explanatory, so here are few examples:

Shutter speed can give many different effects, but particularly with light. It’s great for exposure type shots like these:

However, usually, people associate the exposure shots with a night-time setting like above, however, they can also be used in daylight. But if the subject of the exposure isn’t light, then what is it? Well, here are some examples:

Motion is the subject of our exposures in this case. Anything with movement becomes this whispy blur of all its positions in time. Truly, it is quite spectacular.
