I loved this weeks "photography tips for your weekend" from DPS
My favorite tip:
It means ‘thinking’ about your photography – planning shots, setting yourself challenges and then critically reflecting upon the photos you take to work out how you could improve
Great, Great article on how to use inspiration shots from other photographers.
I will be honest here and say I can totally relate to doing this. I think back on my first sessions. I would be prepared with all these different "poses" in my mind. Only to come home and notice the pictures were missing the magic I had seen in other photographs.
I've found when I take control of the shoot, with a little direction but allow people to be natural, is when I get the "magic" shots.
I improved so much when I finally let go, and just watched for the moments that were already happening around me. It also made me more confident as photographer.
It's liberating to create. To feel like you are the creator of your image.
Have a great Easter weekend!
I plan on following another tip as well: picking up your camera and taking it with you - everywhere
