More Than A Snapshot: Photography Tips | Sunbury Photographer

So we have talked about having your camera out and ready to shoot at all times. You can see that post here. And then we talked about filling the frame. Check that post out here. Now I’m going to kind of contradict myself at first thought. But stay with me and I’ll explain what I mean.

My tip for today is to set the scene. What do I mean by that? Remember when I talked about using photographs to tell a story. Well, taking only one type of picture is not going to tell the complete story. So part of the story is taking those nice tight shots of your subject. Now we have to show our subjects surroundings. Whether it be a baseball field, playing with play doh, or the guests at a birthday party.

So the second type of photo I take to tell my story is the photo that you have to step back and take in the whole scene. I told you before to get up in people’s personal space, now I’m telling you to give them their space.

The next time you are taking pictures of something, remember to shoot both kinds of shots. Some of the photos where you fill your frame with your subject. And some photos where you take a step back and shoot the scenery.

Next time I will tell you about the third type of shot that I always try to remember to take. Any guesses on what that might be?
