Som vi ved, er det unødvendigt at “gå over vandløbet efter vand”. Du behøver ikke “gå over gaden efter lys” for at sige det sådan ….. medmindre det er på den anden side af gaden, at lyset er det bedste. Min pointe er, at der er lys frem for alt – eksisterende lys. Hvis du lærer at se dette lys, forstå det og bruge det, kan du skabe et stort lys i hans billeder uden at have brug for andre lyskilder, som f.eks. flash.
Det handler om at finde og bruge det lys, man er i
Det handler om at finde og bruge det lys, man er i, naturligt lys eller kunstigt lys. Her er det portrætlyset, vi leder efter i byen. Det eksisterende lys kan være naturligt lys som de sidste lysstråler fra nattehimlen, der kryber ned mellem bygningerne. Eller det kan være det kunstige lys, der glimter fra en fremvisning eller fra et reklameskilt.
Her er nogle af de byer i Nordjylland vi fotograferer i:
Miljøet er altid med og påvirker, hvordan lyset bliver
Miljøet er altid med og påvirker, hvordan lyset bliver. Ved at lære at forstå hvordan lyset er formet, har du en stor fordel og kan “skabe” godt lys med enkle midler. Det drejer sig ganske enkelt om at finde det spændende og gode lys og placere modellen gunstigt i dette lys og i andre omgivelser. Desuden er det eksisterende lys helt frit!
eksisterende lys i Nordjylland
Det er befriende kun at kunne klare dette eksisterende lys. Selv om der er et svagt lys, kan det ellers have meget gode kvaliteter. Lysets retning og hårdhed er det vigtigste at holde øje med! Ellers er det en god hjælp i lavt natlys, at det nuværende kamera kan tilbyde høje ISO-værdier af god kvalitet, og at de fleste linser har en stabilisator.
Som fotograf er det vigtigt at lære konstant at “tænke” lys. En enkel, men nyttig øvelse kan være at sidde på sporvognen og se på ansigtet af en medpasjer – undersøgelse, hvordan lyset i dette ansigt ændrer sig, efterhånden som sporvognen bevæger sig. I det ene øjeblik er lyset i ansigtet ikke særlig smukt, og i det næste kan det være helt fantastisk.
Her er nogle af de byer i Nordjylland vi fotograferer i:
Hvornår skal man tænke-fra hvor lyset kommer fra, hvorfor er lyset så, hvad har formet lyset på vej mod ansigtet. Når sporvognen bevæger sig, vil lyset konstant ændre sig, fordi miljøet ændrer sig – direkte sol, skygge, indirekte belysning via en lysvæg, der afspejler solen osv. Observer, tænk, Lær!
Når du og din model går rundt i byen, i modsætning til når du sidder på sporvognen og lyset hele tiden skifter, må du finde lyset og placere modellen gavnligt i dette lys. Bare ved at flytte rundt og studere, hvordan lyset ændrer sig, vil du lære meget om lys. Når du får mere erfaring, vil du lettere kunne forudse, hvor du kan finde det gode portrætlys.
For at hjælpe den, der er interesseret i denne proces, tilbyder jeg fotokurset “portræt Light Street-lengde”. Så går vi rundt i byen og finder det spændende portrætlys.
At fotografere betyder”at tegne med lys”. Når man “maler med lys”, gør man det med en lommelygte! Når et billede tages på den sædvanlige måde, belyses/eksponeres hele billedet samtidig. Når man maler med lys, belyser man emnets forskellige dele på Skift over en lang periode. Det giver en stor og spændende frihed til at kunne ændre lyset i denne sag!
Hvis du vil have et andet, kreativt og unikt billede
Hvis du vil have et andet, kreativt og unikt billede, så lad mig “male dig med lys”. Det er en spændende teknik, hvor resultatet på det enkelte billede er vanskeligt at forudse. Netop dette giver mulighed for, at det unikke billede kan opstå. Og med målbevidst arbejde på erfaring, vil det før eller siden opstå. Kreative processer tager lidt tid, men resultatet får en malerisk / kunstnerisk berøring, der passer perfekt til fek ‘ s portræt, skuespil og gravide billede!
naturen, arkitekturen, objekter/produkter i Sydjylland
I princippet kan teknikken anvendes på alle former for motiver, ikke kun på mennesker. Det er på mange måder lettere med de” døde ” emner, når de hviler – især hvis du vil have skarpe billeder. Så naturen, arkitekturen, objekter/produkter kan gladeligt males med lys. Det er naturligvis lidt upraktisk, hvis emnet er meget stort. Så skal du male derefter længe og / eller bruge en stærk lygte!
Så uanset om du er en privat kunde, der vil have et nyt portræt, eller en erhvervsklient, der vil have et særligt produkt, så kan “male med lys” være en god mulighed!
OPSKRIFTSMALING MED LYS: En pilsner…. 1 pc ‘ er mørkt rum 1 PC-kamera, der kan sættes på manuel eksponering 1 PCs tripod for at holde kameraet i ro 1 PCs-model, som også bør forblive i hvile 1 pc ‘ er lille lommelygte med batteri
Så sæt kamera på M / pære, og feks blender 16 og Iso 200 Hav en god baggrundsmusik og erfaring. Mal med lys i ca. 1 minut, indtil billedet er færdigt! Hokuspokus og billedet serveres!
Det er både enkelt og vanskeligt at male med lys
Det er både enkelt og vanskeligt at male med lys – let at gøre det, men ikke helt så enkelt at ramme med det samme. Selvom man kan sige det ligeud for at skabe “kunst ved et uheld” er det også her, at “Øvelse gør mester”! Og jo mere viden og bevidsthed du har om lys, jo bedre ramme dig! Det er stadig kun for at forsøge at fejle, og erfaringen vokser gradvist! Hvis du vil have fart i denne proces, kan deltagelse i mit Værkstedslys bidrage til det.
Her er billedet i midten af billedet. Hvordan skal jeg se på det? Hvad er de vigtigste elementer i mit billede? Hvad betyder ” visuel tunghed “for de vigtige elementer til at fremhæve dem? Hvordan kan sammensætningen forstærke budskabet? …. Det handler om de små nuancer, der kan forstærke eller vende beskeden. Det handler om “timing“.
Det handler om at slippe kreativiteten løs. Det handler om at være “ved bevidsthed i forbryderen” – når en “tager billedet”! Det handler om at nå fremviseren med hans besked! Og måske er “billeder” stærkere, end hvis budskabet bliver gjort klart.
Det bør fotograferes og arbejde med opgaver, på kursusaftener og mellem kursusaftener, individuelt og i grupper. Vi kigger på billeder og taler om det. Jeg vil gøre mit bedste for at inspirere og vejlede i denne proces!
Kurset er egnet for dem, der har grundlæggende viden, der svarer til vores grundlæggende kursfoto, og vil komme et skridt videre, men der er ingen forudsætning. Pointen er, at dette kursus ikke handler om teknik, men om det visuelle.
Den, der ønsker det, kan naturligvis også gå på vores-grundkursus eller tilsvarende i forbindelse med billedet. Komposition, kreativitet og bevidsthed om den visuelle fortælling er “uafhængig” af teknikken, selv om kunpapir også på planeten øger chancerne for “det perfekte skud”yderligere. Og endelig kan billedet optimeres gennem en fornuftig billedbehandling.
Banen går over 3 aftener. Kurserne indeholder både teori og praktisk fotografering. Den får også fotografiske opgaver, der skal løses indtil næste studieaften. På de studieaftener, vi ser på, diskuterer vi deltagernes billeder. På forhånd foto-kursus foto: Vi begynder med bevistjøringsprosessen omkring det billede, som hver deltager vil vælge et af deres egne billeder, som de er glade for, et billede, som de tidligere har taget, eller helst et nyt! Tænk over det, og prøv at sætte ord på hvorfor du kan lide dette billede? Og hvad du ønsker var anderledes? Kan du huske, hvad du tænkte og gjorde, da du tog dette billede?

Sommer er et godt tidspunkt at tage portrætter med naturlig baggrund på. Så er der masser af lys og blå himmel-i hvert fald en del af dagene. Portrætter på en hvid baggrund med studier kan gøres i løbet af året. Det er lige meget, hvilken slags vejr eller lys det er udenfor.
Men hvis man vil have by eller natur som baggrund, er det rart, at det er lyst, både i baggrunden og billedet tages. Selvom jeg bruger atelierblitser, er det godt spillet i det naturlige lys, der kommer udefra og ind i. Det er en blanding, jeg holder meget af. Det giver billederne en meget lys, dejlig og moderne følelse.
Herunder nogle af de byer i Østjylland vi har jobbet i:
Jeg har været i Østjylland og taget portrætter af de ansatte i organisationen af danske kunstnere. De gik efter enkle portrætter i sort og hvid med grå baggrund. – Meget nyttigt.
Tips til at se godt ud på portrætter
Tips til at se godt ud på portrætter det er ikke så let at stå der foran kameraet og måske en fotograf du ikke kender – og samtidig ville se ud som dit bedste. Her kommer nogle tips til at hjælpe dig lidt på vejen.
kameraet ikke er farligt
Husk, at kameraet ikke er farligt. Det er der virkelig ikke – Og husk også, at fotografen og de har det samme mål, nemlig at nå frem til det bedst mulige resultat. Hele seancen er heller ikke så farlig! Der er en lidt underlig situation at stå der, måske foran en papirbakgrunn med et kamera og nogle lys.
Herunder nogle af de byer i Østjylland vi har fotograferet i:
Men det er ikke som i gamle dage, hvor man skulle spare på film. Hvis du får et par billeder med et glimt eller en posering, der ikke fungerer optimalt, er det lige meget. Vi har” film ” nok. Stå godt. Uanset om det føles underligt, mærkeligt eller ubehageligt, vil resultatet også være sådan.
Tøj har meget at sige til sætningen – nedenfor er to portrætter taget samme dag med samme belysning-se, hvor meget skjorterne har at sige til kontrasten og hele billedet. Med sort skjorte foran denne lyse baggrund, står emnet meget mere frem.
People who are new in using a camera need to have some tips to improve their shots, making them into clear, interesting compositions. Read this article for some great advice on how to capture great photographs.
Try different settings on the camera such as shutter speed or what works the best for you. You can capture moments that happen in a blip or blur larger time periods together. To freeze moving objects, try out a fast shutter speed. A slower shutter speed will help to capture calm, natural scenes.
If your goal is to take great pictures, don’t skimp on your gear. A dSLR camera is a great option for taking high-quality shots. This is what kind of camera most photographers have been using, if you want to take good photos this should be what you want to buy.
Take unique pictures that are interesting to you and that you think would be highly interesting to others. A great photograph should be not only aesthetically pleasing, but should also showcase a personal style. Do not take pictures that people have seen over and over again. An unusual angle can be just the thing to express your creativity and create a memorable photograph.
Framing is a very important aspect of photography. Zoom in on your subject or the most important part of the photo and cut out extraneous objects from the background. This will avoid a cluttered photo.
Many people think that bright, sunny days are best for taking pictures, but the truth is that direct sunlight can ruin any photo. This not only causes glares and shadows in your pictures, but it also casts uneven highlights, and makes your subjects quint when they’re facing towards the camera because of the sun. It is always wise to shoot either early in the morning, or later in the evening for the best outdoor pictures.
If taking pictures with people in them, blur the background slightly. Having a sharply focused background can detract from your subject matter, making it difficult for any viewers of your photo to focus the way you intend them to. You can do this by having your background farther away from your subject.
When preparing to shoot, you should hold your camera close to your trunk and grip it firmly on the sides and bottom. This keeps the shaking to a minimum and your shots will be more clear. Make sure that you’re gripping the camera from underneath. What this does is steadies the camera better and also works to prevent any accidental drop.
Broaden your photographic horizons by playing with your camera’s features and the colors and angles you use. The subject of your photos can be very ordinary, yet will create an interesting picture. A good photographer makes even insignificant objects look interesting. Try many different methods to develop your style.
In a landscape shot, the foreground is just as important as the background. To create a frame that is striking and increase the depth of your photo, plan the foreground of the shot.
Start shooting pictures right away when you leave for a trip. Consider taking photos of your journey to and from your destination to add interest to your travel photos. Try documenting your journey. For example, an airport has many wonderful photo opportunities.
Most modern digital cameras have a flash that automatically deploys when they detect low-light situations. Auto-flash is great for amateur photographs, but for a cleaner more professional look you should have an external unit with a broader range for your camera flash. Look at your camera and determine whether or not it features a “hot shoe” near the top; this is where the external flash unit attaches to the camera. If your camera can accommodate the external flash, bring it with you to the camera store to find the right model.
Having your batteries always charged helps you avoid missing any great shots. Modern digital cameras use a lot more power than older cameras because of their LCD screens, so don’t get caught off-guard; charge your camera’s batteries often. If you’re really dedicated to always being ready to shoot, bring along an extra set of camera batteries.
Find the right combination between shutter speed, aperture and ISO. These three features determine the exposure of your picture. Over- or underexposed pictures should be steered away from, unless this is the particular look you are seeking. Do a little experimenting and you will soon understand the relationship between these three features.
Take pictures of anything and everything on trips. Some details might not seem important when you take the picture, but when you reflect back on your trip, these pictures will recreate a particular ambiance or memory for you. Feel free to photograph the little things like signage, shop windows or even the unusual things that collect in your pocket, such as foreign coins and train tickets.
Do your best to make your models feel at ease, especially if you do not know them. Many individuals can be suspicious of a photographer’s motives. Be friendly, strike up a conversation and ask permission to take pictures. You can help them to see that photography is the art of capturing memories, and not an invasion of their personal privacy.
Stay still while you press the shutter. Don’t even breathe. You could ruin your shot by accidentally moving. Inhale deeply and hold it until you have released the shutter button.
Finding another photographer to mentor you or joining a club can improve your photography skills. There is much to be learned from other people in this field, but make sure to maintain your own personal style. Compare your pictures with each other, and marvel at how one object can be perceived so differently by two people.
Get comfortable with your models before you start photographing them. Many people tend to see someone taking photos as a threat. Help your model to relax by keeping a friendly atmosphere, and the mood upbeat. Also, seek their permission before you start taking their picture. Turn people onto the idea that photography is a form of art, rather than a form of predation.
When taking indoor photos that are under fluorescent lights, try adjusting the white balance for your setting. Subjects will not look their best under the harsh light from fluorescent bulbs, so adjust the color settings on your camera.
If you are visiting somewhere new, attempt to find out what the local attractions are for photographing. Looking at postcards can give you some great ideas. Postcards have a lot of different ideas of locations or subjects you can take photos of.
When you first arrive for a wedding photography job, you can warm up by looking for poignant, unplanned vignettes: a fresh centerpiece, an abandoned purse, a jacket thrown over a chair. This could be the occasion to take some great pictures.
Usually before taking a picture, you want to figure out if you should take advantage of the shadows or highlights on your subject. On the other hand, if you take two pictures, using different conditions, you can use software to blend the two together into one image of perfection.
When taking landscape photos, every shot should contain three things. They are a foreground, a mid ground, and a background. These are not only fundamentals basics of photography, but of a lot of other types of art as well.
Take a lot of experimental photographs when you are working with a new subject or background. Practice shots can give you the confidence you need to take the best photos, even in unfamiliar situations. The lighting in any given setting can change, so make sure you take lots of practice shots between real pictures.
Make a custom silhouette. Most use the sunset for a silhouette, but there are other ways to accomplish this too. If the difference in lighting between the subject and background is significant, with the background being brighter, it will create a silhouette. Try putting your subject near a window with light pouring in from behind or even just put an external flash to the rear of the subject. Keep in mind, however, that silhouettes could also reveal a facial or body outline that is less than flattering.
If you are photographing a bride or another person wearing white clothing, make sure to use a contrasting background color. Most photographs will use the auto-focus setting and let the camera interpret what is in the frame. The contrasting background will make the white clothes stand out instead of looking washed out.
Think about different brands of film before purchasing film for your camera. There will be a difference in your results based on the film you use, so find a brand you like and stick to it. A lot of good film brands are just as good as any other, so it comes down to personal preference. The brand that you like using the most is your best choice.
Adjust the focus to create a unique photograph. If you wish to have the main focus on the subject or object without having the background overtake it, then think about using a smaller f-stop number, otherwise known as a depth of field technique. When the subject sits close to the lens, such as a portrait shot, this is a great idea. If you want everything in the composition to be in focus, use a larger f-stop. This is perfect for landscape photos.
A tripod is your best option if you’re looking to photograph the landscape. Having a sturdy tripod for your camera to sit on is imperative for taking any sort of picture, especially those that deal with landscapes, since you’ll be able to change the settings without your camera shaking.
As you should now see, you can use photography to capture a memory or a beautiful moment in time. Use these tips and hints to familiarize yourself with the art of photography, and to raise your skill level from novice to professional.
Although your camera can take horizontal shots, you shouldn’t completely rely on this feature. You can often make a striking photo with your camera vertical. Zoom in so that you can really focus in, or zoom the lens out to capture the whole subject.
TIP! Think twice about paying for a professional social media marketing service. There are a lot of social media marketing scam artists out there who prey on inexperienced business website owners.
More and more people are using social networks. You may be surprised, in fact, as to how many of your existing customers are on these sites. If you’re not already set up with a profile for your company, what’s stopping you? Read on to gather the tips you need to get started in social media to market your company successfully.
TIP! Businesses that rely on Twitter to promote upcoming sales should make an effort to interact with customers. Whenever questions get asked answer them, and express gratitude to anyone that mentions you.
Provide special offers to your followers. You can entice your customers to purchase with unique items that can not be found anywhere else. For instance, start a fun contest. If not, offer an exclusive price reduction or coupon savings just for followers to enjoy. You can also only include special announcements on any of your social media pages.
TIP! Converse with your customers. Receiving feedback from your customer is great, but it’s up to you to respond back to them to open the door to discussion.
Think about what kind of relationship you want with your customers. Keep your messages simple if you want to be successful and increase sales with social media marketing. Saying “Hello” is a great way to begin a relationship with your customers. This gives your client the reins to take over the conversation.
TIP! Establish a combination of email strategies as well as social media initiatives. Add a Facebook button or twitter button to the end of your emails.
Become completely compatible with the big social media sites by adding comments, ratings and a sort function on your website. By having these social media tools on your site, your consumers have the ability to participate in what you are trying to promote.
One of the best ways to attract your target market is to promise incentives and offers exclusively to those who follow your business on social media. People who receive exclusive offers on Facebook or other social media sites will pay more attention to your social media marketing campaign as well as share your sites with others.
TIP! You should always remember that people who follow you on social media sites want you to pay attention to what they have to say. One customer posting a suggestion probably represents many others who would agree with the comment.

You can engage any customer one-on-one, speak to the masses and tailor everything the world knows about your business all in one easy to use and cost effective place. Add social media marketing to your marketing repertoire and see how useful it is.
Photography is a difficult art form to master. You need some degree of talent to succeed as a photographer, but the most important part of successful photography is putting in the effort to learn photographic techniques. However, if you are not a born photographer, you can certainly learn enough good technique to take great pictures.
Try not to capture a gray sky in your pictures. Including too much of a gray sky will make your pictures appear muted and washed-out. If you cannot exclude the overcast sky from your shots, you may want to consider taking black and white photos. A clear blue sky is always lovely in a photo, but adjust your settings to account for bright light.
Test varying shutter speeds to learn which speed works best for certain scenarios. Photography gives you the power to turn a series of single moments into a larger, more broad time frame. To freeze moving objects, try out a fast shutter speed. A slower shutter speed will help to capture calm, natural scenes.
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. The sun will cast awkward shadows along with glaring, and cause uneven highlights that will make your subjects squint when they look into the camera. If you can, pick times early in the morning or later in the evening when taking pictures outside.
It’s best to use a blurred background when taking portrait shots. If the background is too crisp or clear, viewers may get distracted by it or be unsure of which part of your photograph to pay the most attention to. This loss of focus is achievable by increasing the distance between the person and the background.
Try not to capture an overcast sky when taking pictures. Capturing an excess of gray sky in your image can cause your pictures to look washed-out and muted. Although, if you are taking photos with black and white, you can shoot your photos with an overcast sky. If the day is not overcast, you can show as much of the sky as you want to, but make sure you are attentive to the lighting.
There’s so many different features to play with on your camera. Make sure you adjust your colors and angles while experimenting. Your subject does not have to be original in order for your photo to be unique. A good photographer should be able to make a picture of an unoriginal object look interesting, thanks to their skills and artistic talent. Practice and experiment until you find your own personal style!
A lot of people consider gorgeous days of abundant sunshine to be ideal for snapping good photos, but direct sunlight is actually a good way to mess up a good picture. Direct sun will cast shadows and cause glares but it will cause highlights that are uneven and your subjects may squint. Early morning or twilight are much better choices for photo shoots.
Having people in your pictures can add authenticity, perspective and interest. Of course, it is recommended to request permission first before snapping pictures. Do not try taking pictures of people who stand out. These pictures are going to remind you of a particular atmosphere when you look at them later. Find casual clothing and candid expression.
An important factor in photography composition, is framing. Zoom in on your subject or the most important part of the photo and cut out extraneous objects from the background. You can take away all of the clutter and unwanted objects in your pictures.
When you are photographing a particular subject, move around it. Try interesting angles such as shooting from above, underneath, moving from side to side of the subject, or holding the camera at waist level.
Many photographers pay attention to the background of a landscape shot and neglect the foreground, but the foreground is what the viewer will see. Make sure your foreground has a nice appearance and will show depth.
Figure out the best blend of aperture, ISO and shutter speed. These settings can determine what your picture will look like. Unless you are shooting for an artsy, atmospheric result, try to avoid under- or over-exposed photos. If you try out the different features and how they work together you can find what works best for you!
Finding another photographer to mentor you or joining a club can improve your photography skills. There is much to be learned from other people in this field, but make sure to maintain your own personal style. Looking at shot comparisons can show the different points of view found in photography.
Experiment with you camera’s shutter speed settings. When you know how the shutter speed affects your photographs, you can manipulate them to add interest to your pictures. A camera comes with a variety of settings. P,M,A and S are some of those options. Using the “P” setting will put your camera into program mode. This setting is automatic, which means you don’t have to worry about setting the shutter or aperture speed yourself. For general use, the “P” setting is the right one to choose.
If you are warming up for a wedding shoot, take pictures of simple, still subjects, such as a flower in the bouquet or the rings. Sometimes you will get some fantastic shots that are unexpected.
Take photographs of souvenirs and mementos gathered during your travels. For example, photograph the shop where you had originally purchased the memento, or frame the object against a memorable background. This creative project helps to create a more memorable connection with the objects and sights from your travels.
As you journy to new and different places, look for tips on what interesting things there are to photograph. A great place to help you generate ideas is to browse through local postcards that are for sale in small shops or others areas you visit. The postcards will show images of places and subjects that people would like to see and would be a welcome addition to your portfolio.
Make your subject feel comfortable, especially if you don’t know them. Many people feel threatened when a stranger starts photographing them. Help your model to relax by keeping a friendly atmosphere, and the mood upbeat. Also, seek their permission before you start taking their picture. Help people see photography as an art form, not as a way to invade their privacy.
It is important that you take the time to read your camera manual, and become familiar with your camera before you begin using it. Camera manuals have a certain bulky heft that discourages reading. They usually get shoved in the back of a drawer or just thrown away. Instead of throwing them out, use time to read its contents. You will find a lot of information that can improve your picture taking and stop silly mistakes from happening.
You might want to join a club or group that specializes in photography, or perhaps, find another person who has the same interests as you. Other people who share your interests can provide you with great information, but try not to let them influence the way you take your pictures. Compare your photos with your photo buddy to see what different approaches each of you had towards the same subjects.
With most photos, you will have to make the choice of how to properly expose highlights and shadows in the photograph. If you so choose, you can take two different pictures with different effects, and blend them together using programs such as Photoshop.
Add interest to a photograph by adjusting the focus at different points. A lower f-stop means that the main subject will be shaply focused in contrast to a blurry background. This is a good technique to use when the subject is up close, such as in portraits. If you use a bigger depth of field, more elements will enter into the point of focus of the picture. You’d use this technique when shooting landscapes.
You can be the editor of your own photos! There are quite a few different pieces of software that allow you to edit photographs. Find a software that you can edit your photos, however you want. Opt for the software program that appears to be the most user-friendly.
As you have just read in the above article, you can become a master of photography and have the skills necessary for a good career, something which isn’t available in many other occupations. There is more to photography than simply pointing and clicking a cheap camera. It is about forever immortalizing the beauty that surrounds you by capturing it in a photograph.
You should think about your approach before you start taking pictures. Sit down, and brainstorm some notes and ideas which will make your shot better. As with any form of art, it’s all in the details and execution of a concept or idea. Approaching photography in this way can create motivation and inspiration that will enhance the final product.
