I was browsing an old Frame One magazine where I read this Dozen Don’ts in Shooting.
Thinking this is something essential for beginners in who want to learn Photography so I decided to share it out.
12 Photography Tips
- Don’t use shallow depth of field for group pictures.
- Don’t use an extreme telephoto lens either.
- Do not disregard the effectiveness of pyramid composition for groups.
- Don’t let someone stand directly behind somebody but should stand between two persons even if he is in the hind row.
- Don’t have eyes of subjects in various directions.
- Don’t position the camera at eigher too low or too high the level of the subject.
- Don’t allow “football shoulders,” meaning… too frontal posing
- Don’t allow lights to wash out some elements of the subject.
- Don’t position two heads at the same level.
- Don’t merge hands or body parts with borders of the frame.
- Don’t disregard light reflections on camera lens.
- Don’t direct eyes so much as to keep the pupils lodged in the corners of the eyes.
