The Real Secret to Taking Spectacular Photos
Show people something they’ve never seen before
If you think back to a photo that really inspired you or moved you, it was probably a photo of something that you’ve never seen before. Or it was a photo of something you have seen – but captured in a really unique way that you’ve never seen before.
There are billions of photos out there of people posing in front of things, there are billions of photos out there of places and things – and they all eventually fade together – but what makes a photograph really spectacular is something that captures attention.
This is why I love HDR, tiltshift, fisheye shots, and anything else that’s just different from the norm. You don’t even have to go anywhere to take a spectactular shot – just look around wherever you are and DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
To help you get started thinking in the right direction, here are 10 ideas:
1. use shadows
2. get closeup
3. capture patterns
4. use long exposure
5. get low
6. blur it
7. use lots of empty space in your composition
8. use reflections
9. capture motion
10. get down, look up
