(^The End by Grizzly Beatz^)
To start with, I’m an awful photographer. I have shaky hands, I always seem to unintentionally crop things out and its usually blurry.
There is a scratch on the camera lens of my phone so I usually get a friend to take the picture for me and then email it to me (because my phone can’t send or receive picture messages -_- it has problems).
So it can really only get better from here.
After reading Unit 5,
I thought that the concept of leaving things out being a major part of photography was interesting. I learned a lot from watching the video.
Here are the main points on becoming a better photographer. It goes more in-depth here.
- Get Pickier:
- Better Contrast Makes Better Stories
- Change My Perspective By Changing Yours:
- Create Depth:
- Get Balanced.
- Pay Attention to the Moment:
- Look to the light.
- Use the Best Lens
- Expose for Aesthetics
- Put a Great Foreground in Front of a Great Background
In this article, I thought that the Migrant Mother photograph really wasn’t super impressive even though it is so famous. I thought that the lighting was pretty spot on and the camera quality was superb but other than that it was a little boring. That sounds awful knowing that she was obviously in a bad position but its what I think. I found “Old Negro” and “Rural Rehabilitation Camps for Migrants” more interesting personally.
