11 Incredibly Easy Photography Tricks Which Will Make Your Photos Extraordinary

Depth

Depth will give your shot a more three-dimensional and vibrant feel. There are few characteristics that can help you achieve it:

  • parallel lines, which come to one point in the distance;
  • gradually dissolving fog will make your photo seem layered;
  • tone (volume is transmitted through color: darker objects appear closer, and lighter objects appear farther away);
  • the depth of field (if you blur the background, clear objects will appear closer, while fuzzy objects will seem more distant).

Foreground

While making your shot deeper, don’t forget about the foreground: if you add something to it, some object, the fans will feel more involved.

Shadows and reflections

Use these components to make your picture more exciting and climactic. You can create a visual ’dialogue’ between the subject and its reflection (shadow).

The golden hour and the blue hour

’Golden hour’ — the period shortly after sunrise or before sunset, when contrast seem to be reduced, and light becomes softer and warmer. Check out this online calculator where you can find out the time of the ’golden’ hour in your area.

The ’blue hour’ lasts for about 20-30 minutes during dawn each morning and dusk each evening, when the light becomes predominantly blue. You can find out here when this enchanting time will come in your area.

Closed up shots

Macro Photography of Drugs

You don’t necessarily have to have extra expensive macro lenses to make great closed up with your phone. A single drop of water is enough if you carefully place it on your phone’s lens with your finger.

Practice first, experiment later

Once you’ve learned the basic rules of composition, don’t be afraid to break them: this way not only you’ll get a fresh shot, but you’ll also start developing your unique style.
