I’ve outlined the
3 4 areas for you to concentrate on to become a better photographer – with a very broad brush. But all images start out as follows:-
- An idea – could be planned months ahead, or on the spur of the moment
- Composition – so how are you going to capture it, what is interesting, what do you want to exclude, do you want the background blurred out…. etc. etc. etc.
- Techy – which lens do I need to achieve this, what focal length works best, is depth of field or movement most important (another blog subject there!!!) and which settings will I use to achieve all this
When all 3 come instinctively, with no conscious thought, and you’re getting repeatable great results, you’re well on your way to mastering photography!
