Today anyone with a smartphone or iPhone can take photos. However, detailed shots always require good lighting conditions. If nature does not provide this, we have to help a little with the settings. But the position from which we take photos is also an important factor that we will talk about in a moment.
Another point of view …
We know the various components of a landscape well enough and of course there are also photos in abundance. Nevertheless, we continue to take photos and if things go well, one or the other picture will find its way into our collection.
But so that we can get very special photos on the hard drive, you need it just change the perspective. To do this, crouch down or take a bird’s eye view. Look at your subject at eye level and concentrate on the detail. As here with the dog, this can be the head, a single leaf on the ground, a bench or on a branch.
Playing with shadows in detail shots
The morning and afternoon sun usually casts interesting shadows in nature, which we should take advantage of. Because with the right exposure, even an autumn leaf can become a star in the spotlight.
Often, however, you have to manually help with the smartphone camera so that the detailed shots are correctly staged. It is worthwhile to familiarize yourself with the technology in advance. You can find more tools in almost every photo editing app and most of them free of charge.
Don’t be afraid of closeness!
As already mentioned, you sometimes have to “get on the skin” of the motifs in order to make small objects look big. With the correct setting, you can safely approach the subject up to 10 cm away. The limit is only reached when the image on the display becomes blurred. Then step back with the camera until the image comes into focus again.
Everything done right but what’s next?
Now you’ve shot a lot of great photos and they are far too good to lie dormant on your hard drive. Of course, interesting photos must also be specially archived and preferably in a great photo album. Don’t just paste your photos in to save space, let them tell stories. To do this, design the pages with different background papers, stick in small memos or statements and always look for something special when selecting accessories. You can find a variety of inspirations in the previous posts. Just browse through our blog, get ideas for implementation and have a lot of fun!
