5 Common Photography Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
A lot of people love photography. We’re on that list. Whether you’re a professional with years of experience, or just getting started, there is a lot to love about photography. But there are also a lot of mistakes you can make as you embark on your journey. We’ve been there and we want to help. So here are 5 common photography mistakes and how to avoid them.
We’ve all seen that photograph where the subject is sitting there with a tree growing out of their head. It’s not just trees. Any vertical object can seem to appear from the head of your subject. Don’t worry, this is easy to fix. Take the time with your subject and set the picture the way you want it.
Focus is really important in photography. There are a lot of reasons an image can be blurry, but the truth is that any blurry photo is going to be less appealing than one that is sharp, clear, and focused. How can you fix this? Take the time to become a master of manual and auto-focusing, stand still, and take your time when trying to capture an image.
Overspending on Equipment
There is a certain amount of truth in the logic that you get what you pay for. Pricier cameras and equipment often have additional features and capabilities. The problem is that you don’t necessarily need them, nor do you really know how to use them. When you’re getting started in photography, spend time learning the basics of what you have, rather than trying to spend your way to better pictures.
Not Knowing Your Camera
It’s common for us to get so eager to take some pictures that we rush out without fully knowing how our chosen camera works. Many cameras have helpful features and tricks that can actually make your endeavors easier and more fulfilling. So what do you do? Simple, take the time to learn your chosen camera, whether it’s a camera or a phone. Spend time, you won’t regret it.
Not Having Fun
Ultimately, photography is an incredible hobby that can provide years and years of fun. But many people get so caught up in trying to become perfect at it that they stop having fun. Remember why you wanted to practice photography in the first place and enjoy it. You will get better with time and practice. Trust us.
