adventure-and-freedom asked: Do you have any advice for a future photographer :)
I feel like perhaps I haven’t been around long enough to start giving advice. But I’ll certainly try. I’d say this:
Don’t do what others do. It’s the only way you’ll ever stand out. It’s incredibly hard to find your unique way of capturing things, but once you do, you’ll be happier with your photos and find that others enjoy them more too.
Try and approach subjects from a new perspective. This kind of goes along with my first one. But the important part is to move. Change your position from the norm. An example would be if you’re taking a photo of a child, don’t shoot down on them. You want to be at their level. Try and get in where your subject exists. The more you do, the less it’ll be a moment captured by a photographer and the more it’ll be a second in time from their perspective.
Eyes are really important. They’re often what makes the most emotion in a photo. You can say a lot with those two big ovals on your face.
Finally, never stop. The more you take the better you’ll get. You’ll want to throw up on most the photos you’ve taken in the years prior. But you’d never get to where you are if you didn’t take the steps to get there.
I hope that helps you :) thanks for following me. And good luck on your journey in photography. Just make sure you keep a camera in your hand!
