Contrary to popular belief, gorgeous, sunny days are a photographer’s worst nightmare. You can’t take proper photographs if you or your subject is standing directly in the sun’s path. One or both of you will be uncomfortable, and the sun’s glare can make your subject difficult to see in the finished photograph. Sunlight can cast bad shadows, weird highlights and give your subject squinting eyes. It is always wise to shoot either early in the morning, or later in the evening for the best outdoor pictures.
When taking photos of people, your subject will stand out best against a background that is a little blurred. Having a background that is in full focus will take away from your subject, making it harder to direct your viewer’s focus to the right location. An easy way to do this is to make sure that there is a larger distance between the subject and the background.
People are an amazing subject to photograph! It’s important and often legal that you gain permission before taking someone’s picture. Taking pictures when you are traveling makes for great memories later, even if the pictures don’t stand out, they may trigger important memories for you. When selecting people to photograph, always look for those dressed casually and sporting candid expressions.
Get as close to your subject as possible. Terribly far away shots prevent the viewer from seeing clear colors and details. Move closer to give your shots vivid clarity.
You can move from area to area around the shot so you are able to find a more interesting shot. When shooting your subject, try angles from the left, right, above and even below if possible.
