Travelling is one of the most exciting & adventurous activity which is preferred by most of us as hobby it also a very good source of learning it gives us experience of learning as well as knowledge which helps us greatly in our life. When we talk about travelling we cannot leave photography apart.
Both have their own importance such as:
- They make you remember your trip for long time whenever you see pictures.
- Sometimes photos help us in catching few scenes which our eyes has not captured while roaming sites.
- They also help your friends and family if they want to visit same place for vacations.
Hence it is very important to shoot videos and pictures whenever you travel somewhere.
Taking photos/videos is very easy nowadays because everyone is almost using Smartphones with enhanced camera features. We just need to remember few points whenever we go for shoot:
Tips for capturing good pictures and videos:
- The attention on the subject will make you capture maximum things in frame, because people are only going to notice those things which you have captured rest will remain unknown.
- We need to remember always for taking good photographs that whenever we want dark images we need to darken the light areas, & wherever we need light images we need to lighten the dark areas.
- We also need to zoom the position of camera as per the need to the photograph.
- One more important thing which needs to be remembered is that sometimes scenes are visible for very short time period, so preparation before taking image is very important, we need to set our camera for the shot always, so that the opportunity could not be missed.
Other important features of good photos/videos:
Importance of background:
Picture will be successful or not totally depends upon the background you have chosen. What happens sometime that if proper background has not been chosen and there is some kind of distraction in the background or it is looking messy, it might catch the attention of the public and compel them to focus on background instead of subject. In this condition the purpose of taking photograph is diluted, hence before taking image background needs to be focused.
There should be one ground rule that if background is giving compliment to the subject it should be focused or else it should be removed totally from the picture so that it does not catch the attention and dilute the purpose of the picture.
Importance of Camera:
Picking right camera with right features is equally important, because one might put all his/her intelligence in choosing background & picture but if camera is not good enough, all activities of choosing site and scene will be a futile activity. The lens, aperture, dynamic range, good light meter, precise shutter and comfortable control are few things we need to keep in mind before selection of camera.
Importance of Posture:
Posture is important because it will tell the viewer that which subject is important to view. There should be balanced composition between subject and background than only photos and videos will be more interesting. Posture of subject should be placed in such a manner that it must be visible both horizontally and vertically to the viewer as per the requirement. Objects with lesser importance can be used to fill the background this kind of composition will help in capturing the complete picture.
Choosing a correct lines that is ( zig zag, straight, diagonal, curvy will help in enhancing the view of picture and will make it more attractive.
Although few people think that focusing and capturing photos all the time while travelling spoils the adventure of the trip because people focus most of the time on how to capture best images instead of spending time with friends and family or enjoying the trip, but that is not the case all we need to do is balancing both the task accordingly.
I am sure that above mentioned pointers will help you in capturing good photos and videos which will be with you lifetime as sweet memories of your wonderful trip at different locations.
