Galveston Island.. Learn to be a better photographer.. shoot this… not that!

Galveston Island.. Learn to be a better photographer…

Shoot this… not that!

Check this handy info graphic to learn some easy photography tips to create better pictures while you’re on vacation on Galveston Island!

 

When you go on a Galveston Photo Walk photo tour with us, we teach you quick and easy tips  you can use all the time when you want (or need) to take a great picture!

These are skills you’ll use every time you grab your camera… and they are super easy!

For instance, look at the photo above to see how you can learn to SEE better!

Camera’s these days are really good at taking care of all of the technical details, so it’s up to you to compose for the right picture.

Did we use an huge zoom lens?

Did we crop the photo in Photoshop How did we do it?

First of all, we decided what would make the best “focal point” or the center of attention for the photo.

Then we simply walked from the front of the Church to the side of it and composed this shot using a modest zoom lens to take this picture!

Simply walking closer to whatever you are photographing can make your pictures stand out!

So when you have the itch to take a picture, STOP and think about what you can do to make it better before you even raise your camera to your eye.

Galveston has some of the most amazing architecture, and this Church reflects that.

We wanted to photograph this Church, but we needed to figure out what exactly would work given the lighting, shadows, cars and other distractions.

Notice on the first picture how there is a strong shadow on the face of the Church?

That would have been very distracting and would not make a great picture.

So by noticing the shadows, we were able to see that the statue was the most photogenic part of this scene at this time of day.

So now all we had to do was to walk closer to the statue and decide what to include in the picture.

We decided to include the tropical palm trees because they are so much a part of Galveston!

The lesson here is to select your subject, then take out anything that takes away from your subject in any way.

Look at each detail & ask “does this belong?”

If the answer is no, find a way to remove it, block it, or minimize it in your picture!

Just imagine how much you’ll learn when you come along with us on a Galveston Photo Tour!  Reserve your spot on our Galveston Photo Walk and walk your way to being a better photographer!
