  20. 20. If you want to improve your photographs by 100%, MOVE CLOSER! • Clears out distractions. • Little doubt of who your target is. • As soon as you think you think you are close enough, take a few steps forward. • Look around the edges of the frame. Can you leave anything out? – Move closer!

  31. 31. Leading Lines Leading lines refers to a technique of composition where the viewer of your photos attention is drawn to lines that lead to the main subject of the image.
  32. 32. Leading Lines Basically, it is easier for the brain, which makes it more pleasing to the eye! It leads the eye from the foreground of a picture to the main element or a vanishing point.

  36. 36. 3 Weekend Photography Projects
  37. 37. Project 1 - Panning Panning is the horizontal movement of a camera as it scans a moving subject. 1. Panning requires a steady hand and a relatively slow shutter speed. 2. Keep in mind that the faster your shutter speed is the easier it will be to keep your subject crisp. 3. Make sure your subject remains in the same portion of the frame during the entire exposure: this will ensure a crisp, sharp subject. 4. Remember that the faster your subject is moving the more difficult it will be to pan. All You Need For This One Is A Camera And PATIENCE To Get It Right
  38. 38. Project 1 - Panning
  39. 39. Project 1 - Panning
  40. 40. Project 2 – Traffic/Light Trails Panning is the horizontal movement of a camera as it scans a moving subject. 1. Light trails created by cars. 2. Securing your camera. 3. Setting a long exposure setting on your camera 4. Shooting at a time when cars will be going by to create the trail of light. Of course it’s a little more complicated than this – but the general factor behind it is longer exposures that will enable the car/s that create the trails to move through your image. What you’ll need: 1 - Camera in Shutter Priority 2 - Tripod 3 – Traffic 4 – Warm clothes
  41. 41. Project 2 – Traffic/Light Trails
  42. 42. Project 2 – Traffic/Light Trails An Additional Idea!
  43. 43. Project 3 – B&W Street Photography Street photography is a type of photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places. What you’ll need: 1 - Camera in Aperture Priority 2 – Comfortable shoes 3 – Warm clothes 1. Ask permission of people! 2. Alternatively, shoot from the hip 3. Go Black & White - Let the tones of the picture tell the story 4. But make the picture tell the story
