31. Doing a trick with sunglasses.
Increasing the color saturation can still be done even with the use of a compact camera. All you have to do is to hold your sunglasses on top of the lens, in which it would serve as its polarizing filter. This would reduce the glare and reflections. However, take a few shots first, so that you can ensure that you won’t include the frames of your sunglasses into the picture.
This sounds awesome. I’ll probably actually try this soon!! If you try it before me let me know how it works out for you.
32. Do some experimenting.
Lots of beginners in photography are pretty serious in following all the things they learned through the books they read. To stand out from the rest, you should do some experimenting by not sticking to the rules all the time. When you do that, you would be able to discover new techniques and compare different perspectives.
I love experimenting. I like too understand what I read and how it works. So I’ll always try that way, but then, I experiment. Sometimes it works out. Other times, not so much. But I learn a lot by experimenting.
33. Have your own calling cards.
Having your own calling cards is a good way to let people know that you can offer your photography services to them. However, it is also one of the things you can do to make sure that you won’t be offending someone, when you take their picture off the street. If someone confronts you, just hand over the card, so that he would realize that you are an artist or a professional. By doing that, the person would feel good that you have chosen him as your subject.
I personally haven’t gotten into street photography yet, but I agree, this is a fabulous idea.
34. How to decide in deleting or keeping the image.
Oftentimes, you might find yourself out of space to save your photos in. Therefore, it is best to decide on what images to keep and what images to delete. To decide on deleting an image, just simply think about hanging it on your wall. If you don’t like the thought of doing that, then that means that the image should be deleted.
That’s exactly how I make that determination. One thing I’ve learned in retail, if I won’t buy it, don’t sell it. Great motto.
35. Build your portfolio.
Whether you want to become a professional photographer or not, building a portfolio can still offer lots of advantages. Building one can be done online, in which all you have to do is to save your best photographs in a certain website, after signing up for your own account. By doing that, you would be able to check your photos easily, even when you are away from home, and set your standards higher.
I currently use smugmug for mine. I like it because it has an app. I can upload to the from my phone as well as Download from the app. I can use that site for clients to preview photos as well.
