Are you in a creative rut in photography and need inspiration on how to improve your images, particularly your portraits of people? This video offers five suggestions on how to improve your photos immediately.
Every photographer eventually becomes discontent with their work. If you allow it to, discontentment can produce considerable opportunities to learn new skills and grow as a photographer. If this is where you find yourself, this video from Craig Beckta is worth viewing. In his tutorial, Beckta shares five simple adjustments that you can make that will have an instant impact on your images.
While these tips will be most beneficial to beginning photographers, there are several great reminders throughout the video. His first two tips involve controlling the light, whether through off-camera flash or by using a reflector. This might seem simple enough, but if either technique is new to you, Beckta does an excellent job of explaining why this is important and how to do it well. The last three tips involve changing up your posing, controlling the background, and using your camera’s histogram to control the exposure of your image.
All five tips are beneficial, especially if you are new to photographing people. If you still consider yourself a beginner in photography and are looking to improve, you should definitely watch the video above.
