13 Photography Tricks That Work With Any Camera

By M. W. Byrne

You don’t need a fancy camera. Here’s the 13 best photography tricks for beginners.

Get Down

Staying eye-level or lower than your subject adds drama and brings the viewer into intimate contact with the picture.

1

Widen Your Aperture

By using a wide aperture you have greater flexibility with how you shoot your subject and it will change the overall lighting and look of every picture.

2

Blur It Up

Simply put, your subjects will pop more in a photograph if they are sharply in focus while the background and foreground are blurrier.

3

Get In Tight

Tight shots reveal far more than wide ones, allowing you as the photographer to find the artistry inherent in everyday things, and allowing your camera to capture things even your naked eye didn’t notice.

4

Avoid Center Framing

Generally speaking, framing the subject of a photo dead in the center is not ideal, unless perhaps you’re doing a magazine cover.

5

Every Angle

Get angles of all kinds, good, bad, and strange to find what you’re seeking.
