- Alter your Perspectives
Sometimes you can try to alter your perspectives to get another feeling of the shots, special angle for special objects usually create a different effect or different feeling.
2. Play with eye contact
Eye contact is important for a photograph, try to alter your object’s eye contact could make the picture much better than you thought. Also, Eye looking off the camera can create a feeling of the object looking at somewhere interesting, and in that way, we could form a focus point.
3. Break the rule of Composition
Not all pictures have to follow the rules of composition, sometimes breaking the rule can somehow create a better effect for the picture, whether it’s making the picture more interesting or it’s making the picture more attracting.
4. Experiment with lighting
Another technique of portraits is to use the lighting, lighting can be a great source of the focus point and it naturally creates a frame for the objects. Or u can use the randomness of lighting to create a unity of the object.
5. Move your object out from the comfort zone
Each object has their comfort zone, and if the photograph makes them be out of their “zone”, it usually can create a funny, surprising effect. Within this technique, you won’t get any amazing shots, but the photograph will be funny and memorable.
6. Shoot Candidly
In this way, the shots are usually random, you have to know how to get shots from the one moment. To do this, you just have to do a lot of random shots, and some of them will turn out extremely good.
7. Introduce a Prop
This is the way of adding another focus point to ur photograph and can make a balance between the main object. Usually, the other focus point is close to the main focal point and they are attached to each other. Careful to not misinterpret the importance of two objects.
8. Get close up
If you get right close to ur object, it will create a different feeling, because this can leave an imagination of what the other parts of the body look like.
9. Obscure parts of your subject
Similar to Get close up, for this, you will be using stuff to cover parts of your objects. This creates a sense of imagination and also the beauty of mystery.
10. Take a series of shots
By doing this, you create a series of images that could be presented together instead of just one static image. This way of taking pictures can create good unity and it’s good to take it with children since they like to move around all the time.
