Get Low

Digital photography is all about getting a good shot. The majority of the pictures that people take are taken with the picture taker being in a standing or upright position. This leaves very little variation in your digital photography portfolio. To change things up a bit, try bending, stooping, sitting or slumping to get a more interesting picture. Your goal is to position yourself so that you are eye level with the subject of your photo. Doing this creates a different visual perspective. This technique is great for taking pictures of babies, kids, and pets, as they are usually close to the ground The next time your preschooler is enjoying play time on the floor sit or kneel in front of him or her while snapping pictures. Your little one is more likely to engage with you and the camera giving you more interesting photos.

Be Candid

Candid photos are one of the hallmarks of digital photography and its one of the best way to really capture the true essence of a moment. Being over posed can really take the fun out a photo. Next time you’re at a gathering or party try to be as stealthy as possible and snap a few pictures before your subjects realize that you’ve got them in your view finder. Candid shots work best if you’re able to turn your camera’s flash off so you can snap some shots without being found out. Perfecting this technique will help you eliminate a camera full of stiff group shots and corny “say cheese” smiles.

Try different Angles

One of the best aspects of digital photography is the ability to be flexible in your approach. The next time you go snap a picture shoot from an angle you normally wouldn’t try. The best way to do this is to first position your subject(s), then position yourself, aim, point, and before you shoot do the exact opposite of what you were doing. If you’re standing, try sitting. If you’re close to your subject back up and zoom in instead. If your subject is dead center in your view finder, position yourself to the left or right of your subject. If these techniques don’t add drama and interest to your photo then try tilting your camera at an odd angle, somewhere between horizontal and vertical. This tip is a great way to shake things up.
