Transcript of "8 photo techniques"

  1. 1. E I G H T T E C H N I Q U E S F O R G R E AT P H O T O G R A P H S
  2. 2. The Rule of Thirds cc licensed ( BY NC SD ) flickr photo by Maʝicdölphin: http://flickr.com/photos/majicdolphin/ 3258934044/
  3. 3. The Rule of Thirds Divide your photo into thirds horizontally and vertically.Try to arrange subjects so that the subject(s) are at intersection points and lines align with guidelines. cc licensed ( BY NC SD ) flickr photo by Maʝicdölphin: http://flickr.com/photos/majicdolphin/ 3258934044/

  5. 5. Leading/diagonal lines cc licensed ( BY NC ND ) flickr photo by Martin Deutsch: http://flickr.com/photos/teflon/ 133554502/
  6. 6. Leading/diagonal lines cc licensed ( BY NC ND ) flickr photo by Martin Deutsch: http://flickr.com/photos/teflon/ 133554502/ Lines lead the eye towards the subject. Diagonal lines are most interesting.
  7. 7. Foreground/Background contrast
  8. 8. Foreground/Background contrast The foreground (subject) stands out from the background by being lighter, darker (silhouette) or of a different colour
  9. 9. Pattern cc licensed ( BY NC SD ) flickr photo by @Doug88888: http://flickr.com/photos/ doug88888/5891638442/
  10. 10. Pattern cc licensed ( BY NC SD ) flickr photo by @Doug88888: http://flickr.com/photos/ doug88888/5891638442/ The photograph consists of a repeating pattern.
  11. 11. A pattern can be a particularly effective background to contrast the subject
  12. 12. Selective Focus
  13. 13. Another technique for contrast of subject and background, the subject is in focus and the background is out of focus. Selective Focus
  14. 14. Framing cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo by Moyan_Brenn: http://flickr.com/photos/aigle_dore/ 6365060845/
  15. 15. Framing cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo by Moyan_Brenn: http://flickr.com/photos/aigle_dore/ 6365060845/ An object (or objects) are used to form a frame around the subject
  16. 16. High/Low Angle cc licensed ( BY NC ) flickr photo by boyosep: http://flickr.com/photos/boyosep/ 5394674440/
  17. 17. High/Low Angle cc licensed ( BY NC ) flickr photo by boyosep: http://flickr.com/photos/boyosep/ 5394674440/ The subject is viewed from above or below
  18. 18. Close up The picture is taken close to the subject so that it fills then entire photograph (or beyond)
