  • A good photograph is a subject, a context, and nothing else. Remove any clutter that detracts from your message. Get closer -- zoom in -- and crop as tightly as possible

  • The center of the frame is the weakest place -- it's static, dull, and gives no value to the context. The more you move the subject away from the center, the more relevance you give to the context

  • A P E RT U R E• A larger lens opening (f1.4 - 3.5) offers the following advantages: – shoot more often with just natural lighting  reduce harsh shadows and red-eye caused by flash. – Allows more light to pass through, the camera will be able to choose a slightly higher shutter speed  helps to reduce motion blur. – Helps to reduce “depth-of-field” (for effect). 2012 © Abhay Raj www.facebook.com/abhay.raj.photography 32

  • SHUTTER SPEED• To capture blur-free "action" photographs (e.g. Sports), you need to make sure the camera is using a high shutter speed, e.g.1/125th of a second or more.• Less light gets through to the image as shutter speed is increased, thus difficult to use higher shutter speeds in lower light situations.• Alternatives: Allow more light to pass through the lens (larger aperture setting), the other is to increase the ISO 2012 © Abhay Raj www.facebook.com/abhay.raj.photography 35
  • SHUTTER SPEEDAbsolutely sharp images are not always the best. They can look static and dull. At slow shutter speeds the camera blurs the image of moving objects, and can create a more convincing image of movement. 2012 © Abhay Raj www.facebook.com/abhay.raj.photography 36
