1. Know your subject

Don’t just see a beautiful scene and capture it. Analyse it first, decide your perspective. Don’t click the picture from the view point where people normally see. Think out of the box, get down on your knees, get in the mud, crawl between the bushes to get the best shot possible.

2. Two of the most important aspects:  Lighting and darkness

When clicking pictures of landscapes, make sure you are not facing the source of light. This will result in hiding the true texture of the landscape and cast darker shadows. However, if you want to click silhouettes then you should face the source of light. Silhouettes work best with sunsets, architecture and things with a detailed outlines.

3.  Alignments

Landscapes look the best obviously when taken in the landscape mode. It gives a wider view of the scene. For portraits of people, if the person is close to your camera, portrait alignment would be preferable whereas if the person is far, use the landscape mode and place the subject to one side rather than in the center.

4. ISO and Exposure

ISO is how much your camera will be sensitive to light. Keep it on the lowest value when shooting with adequately lit areas mostly during the day and highest value when you are shooting at night. Exposure is to limit the amount of light entering the lens. Though, better to work manually with ISO rather than exposure settings. It results in a bit of grainy images.

5. Go manual

Using the auto mode on your camera might give you good results but never the best ones. If you are truly passionate about enhancing your photography skills then put your camera on manual mode and go out clicking in different lightings to practice.

    1. Shutter speed depends on what you’re trying to capture. If you’re going to click a photo of a moving subject like a bird, running animal or a car then shutter speed should be kept at a higher value so that the pictures will be clicked instantly. This will prevent any blurs formed due to the rapid motion. Slow shutter speed lets you create magical landscapes where you have flowing water and clouds. It gives them a foggy look which looks very pro.

    1. Exposure is a combination of shutter speed and size of the hole in the lens. The larger the exposure i.e. the size of the hole, more light comes in and your picture is brighter. It is useful to have higher exposure in low lit areas when clicking pictures. Similarly, in extensively lit areas, a smaller exposure will be best suited.
