Pay Attention To Little Details

Your total image is more than the subject of your interest. A quick check of the sides, top, and bottom of your frame to see that everything works well together or if anything is out-of-place gives you a 99.9% chance of capturing that great image.

If there’s something that’s not quite right for the image is it possible to adjust it to eliminate ‘the noise’ that would detract from your subject. The whole photo should be balanced with the right perspective.

Naturally, there are those spontaneous shots that equally turn out brilliantly, but that is not always the norm. Check here for more photography tips.

Quick glossary

Noise: Simply defined, image noise in digital photography is the commonly used term to describe visual distortions in a photo. It looks like grain or splotches of discoloration when it’s really bad, and can ruin your photograph. The noise tends to get worse when you’re shooting in low light.

    You mention that the photo should be “balanced with the right perspective”. As a photographer with many years of shooting experience, even I don’t understand what you mean. Perhaps you could expand on that definition.

    One thing I would ad, would be a suggestion to new photographers to go study (appreciate) other art forms. Especially painting. And go take a course on lighting for photography.

    For example, my favourite artist is Jan Vermeer. His style of lighting is amazing and inspiring to me.

      Hello Mike,
      Just saw your comment in my spam box, sorry for the late response. I think my choice of words must be the cause for the confusion or gave rise to your question. In this instance the right perspective I refer to means capturing the image as you would want it to be seen and understood – hopefully – by the viewer without the distraction of unnecessary noise.

      Thank you for your suggestion. I will research Jan Vermeer since he comes highly recommended from you and I totally agree that a newbie should take courses, attend workshops to learn and appreciate other art forms.

      My regards, I’ll be checking out your site because I’m always looking for new inspiration 🙂
