It applies to take his picture
One part correctly: we avoid centering the skyline and is preferably placed on it a little to the right or slightly to the left, not the middle, to give some dynamism to the photo.
It starts at the height of his subject (we do not hesitate to squat to photograph a child);
We choose the shooting mode (or scene mode, or its application photo). An update by pressing the shutter button halfway (or turning the lens ring), we briefly focused the image;
We check that has not a fingertip or a strap lying around for the camera;
It stands very stable on his legs, one takes his camera firmly with both hands, relax and we do not move a muscle when you press the shutter button.
You choose your hours
The light is very important picture. Whether hard or soft, whether the sun or clouds, the colors and shapes will not make the same at all and rendering will be completely different picture.
Here are some tips valid anywhere in the world:
Taking pictures bleueÉviter hours whenever possible to remove the unit from 14 to 16h. The light is so harsh and raw, there is no shade. It will showcase not only the monuments or people, let alone the landscapes that appear flat and dull. The ideal is the late afternoon, when the light is softer and the shadows lengthen.
Some hours are known to have a very beautiful light special: they are called “golden hour” and “blue hour”. The golden hours, it is the minutes after sunrise and before sunset. The sun is so low on the horizon and illuminates the landscape with a soft golden light (hence the name). The time it blue, is visible just before sunrise or just after sunset. As the sun has not yet appeared or when he just disappear on the horizon, the sky takes on a blue tint very special and very photogenic.
Not to miss these times a little magic for photography, just to learn about the sunrise and sunset – it’s easily found on the Internet. Beware though, because according to the latitude they last longer or shorter time. For information on the Paris blue hour lasts about ten minutes, the golden hour for a little longer (1/2h 1 hour I would say).
