3 principals and some awesome tips for how to take great pictures and videos without any PS editing
Traveling has become an indispensable part among people with the rapid development of
transportation. During each amazing journey, shooting helps record what you have seen in
those beautiful places. To make your pictures and videos better presenting for your friends,
I recommend some useful tips and principles for you to take great ones.
1, Rule of thirds
Rule of thirds, also called cross composition of a picture, is a kind of method for composition.
This method is always used to shoot(both pictures and videos), paint and design. You can use
two transverse lines and two vertical lines to get 4 cross points. These 4 points should be
emphasized when you composite your pictures. This rule is suitable for taking pictures of still
persons and seeings, just try it.
When you are taking a picture, you’d better make your frames be parallel with the wall. This is
the key to making many excellent movies. In another words, try your best to achieve parallelism.
3, One-Point Perspective
One-Point Perspective is a painting term which always used to shoot a road or a corridor from
a point in the center. We can use our camera to point at the target, then it will disappear
gradually, which can be amazing during our travel.
These three principles I have stated above are suitable for most time when we shoot. Pay
more attention to what you want to put into your picture, you will get high efficiency and more
comforts. However, traveling is too busy to leave us enough time to take great pictures or
videos. Sometimes, it’s even hurry for us to solve problems of video clipping, so what we can
do is to discover more beauties and materials for greater pictures. How can we make it? Here
are some examples.
1 Try to shoot a corner of a house or the sky because you can add words on it.
2 Use your destination’s information as target, such as: airport, train station, tickets etc.
Or you can shoot the city name of a station.
3 This part refers to many people’s interests, animals. Animals shooting can be attractive
in a way, and the interaction between you and the cuties will be better. My recommend is
to lower your device so that you can observe them clear. If you can catch a shooting of
bird’s fly, that’s perfect!
4 As for famous sightseeing, it’s not good to point at your target but to choose an important
thing for guiding the whole frame.
5 Food is always the first choice for us to shoot both far and near. The only thing you need to
consider is hold your camera tightly to keep stability.
Have you learned all the principles and tips? If so, just hurry up trying your by yourself. You
must be amazed by the perfect frames!
