Daily Blog NO.93.
Back in the day when we’d buy our roll of camera film in Medicare for £1.57, it would make you completely happy with the end result because you did know any better or any different.
Technology has got a lot better now and a lot easier for the novice armature photographer to play around and get a fabulous result.
I am not knocking all the professional photographers who spend loads of money on equipment and charge loads for their work but I am very happy with the outcome I get from my android phone.
The editing sections for the photos and videos is amazing and because the mobile phone is of a higher standard I don’t have to edit some of my photos if I can judge the lighting and angle correctly.
When I have a statement to put into image I have to think about many aspects first before I even take a test shot.
- What I am going to have as my main focus in the image,
- If I want or need any props,
- The lighting (natural or artificial),
- The angle and the best face of the model.
Each model whether it be human, animal or object has a good face or a bad face. I will explain what I mean. If you were to look straight into the camera lens your nose for example may look bigger than what it is originally.
So to move your head slightly to the left or right or up or down would get you a good face image of you because the light would hit you face in a different way and flatter you more.
Also if you wanted a great image of the back of you for example to extenuate the curve of your bottom, the best face of your bottom may not be straight on to the camera lens.
If you were to turn slightly to the left or right so the camera lens can see the light bounce off the small of your back and just slightly onto the roundness of your cheeks it may flatter you much more.
This works for clothed or bare flesh. We are like a hexagon with many sides which I call faces.
So as I say in the title of this blog because of the technology of mobile devices everyone can look fabulous and better in front of the camera…
So if you are looking to be photographed n a way that you can look at the image and say “is that really me” because you look so fabulous darling the contact me and we can converse some more…
