Today, I'm going to talk to you about studio photography. Some photography tips. Always be creative...always be fresh. Always be looking for a new angle, or a new way of looking at things. A good camera is always a good tip. Today, most manufacturers make great cameras at a great affordability rate. There's a wide range of products available, all of which can help you make a fine photograph. Now, when you're composing a shot, always look for the lines in your frame. Look at how the lines line up with the frame itself. Sometimes you can line up your composition so that the lines in your subject complement the lines of the frame. Whether it be the top of the frame, or the sides of the frame, or even an angle through the frame. And lighting is another thing to consider. Don't always look for the best brightest light. Sometimes it's best to look for a directional light. Good window light is always beneficial in good photography. Place your subject next to a window so that the light is directional across their face, or whatever the subject may be. Always keep light in mind, whether it's an obvious directional light, or if it's just a soft even natural light. These are some tips to good photography.
