3 Best Places To Take Photos!

Taking photos obviously requires an environment to do so in, but which one do you do it in? This is a question that we often find ourselves wondering before we are going to take a day taking some photos. Do you go to a studio? Do you go to a field? No need to worry because here you’re going to be shown the 3 best places to take photos!

Bodies Of Water

Taking photos of rivers, lakes and streams are fantastic areas to take very large, striking shots. Usually being quite large in size, you can often find the perfect shot for you! They are also free to view and take photos of which makes this a great option if you are on a tight budget! However, what you must keep in mind about doing this is that you often need to be very close to the water to get a good shot, which puts your camera at risk of getting damaged! Any electronic device is susceptible to water damage and cameras are no exception! It’s important to get a waterproof cover for your camera, the likes of which you can buy from B&H Video to give you camera the protection it needs, saving you heartbreak and money if it gets damaged!

Studios

Often the most professional environment, but also the most expensive so make sure you can afford this one! Studios are, as we all know, enclosed spaces designed specifically for photography. The first thing you need to know is whether or not lighting equipment will be supplied, so check this before you make any assumptions! Companies like goyastudios.com have studios available to fit your needs! Studios provide an enclosed environment for you to take the perfect photo, you just have to be able to get what you to take a photo of to the studio and go!

City Buildings

Another popular choice is taking photos of cityscapes on top of a big city building! This allows you, providing the building is tall enough, to see the entire city from your standpoint, giving you the chance to take an awe inspiring photo by capturing miles of terrain in one shot. By placing you high up, it means that nothing is obscuring your shot as it would if you were on the ground floor, so this is definitely worth doing if you want a big photo! Companies like BestBuy sell a wide variety of long range lenses that you will need to do this with. Due to the amount of distance that your camera will be capturing you have to have a long-range lens!

Going to any one of these places is guaranteed to get you to take the perfect shot. All you have to decide is which one you go to! But do remember to come prepared to the area where you are taking the photos! Once you’ve taken your photo and want to edit it, but not sure how read this for some inspiration.

Photo Perfection: Get The Best Shot

When you’re not a trained or a professional taking the perfect photo can be nothing but a chore. It can be frustrating to have see a constant reel of bad photos coming up, one and the other and each worse than the last. But there are ways around this, ways that you can ensure the photos are better and make you and the people you’ve taken a photo of happy. You may already use some of these tips, but they can give you ideas and stoke your creative spirit, giving you a new motivation to re-enter your passion and stick at it, getting the photos you’ve always wanted. Here’s how to get the best shot.

Don’t Rush The Holiday Snaps

If you rush the holiday snaps you could go home feeling disappointed. Quick fire photos are sometimes okay, but usually you’ll pick something up that ruins the shot. Take your time. Stop for a moment to take the picture you want and retake it if it isn’t what you wanted. Sure, you may be on the clock, but it doesn’t take too long to take a photo.

If you’re s specific camera user, for example, a FujiUser, then check out tips that relate back to that brand. It’s much easier applying specific tips. You should also think about the lens when you are on holiday. Primarily because you don’t want the biggest one to lug around but you do want a decent shot, so take something half decent. Take your time, wait for the right angle and don’t want. You want memories to cherish, not awful photos that you have to look back on.

Don’t Be Afraid To Edit

Sometimes there will be something inevitable in the way of your shot or that one little blemish that ruins everything. In this digital age why not use everything that is at your disposal. Upload your photo to the computer and use some kind of editing technology, such as photoshop, to make it what you want. Certain purists argue against this, ignore them. You want the best photo then make it the best photo. It’s done by everyone all over the world. You can pull out the annoying bird who flew across your range just as you pressed the take button, or beef up the brightness a little bit. Whatever you decide to do, don’t forget that is a legitimate option.

Light Is Your Friend

The more light you have the better the shot will be. If there is a cloudy day, come back when it is sunny. Light makes all the difference in photography. You want to take the brightest photos you can. The same applies indoors. If you look at the professionals they always seem to use light rigging to get the photo they want. Just turn the lights on before taking the snap. Ensure it is the one you want it to be. The recipient will be happier with this too. Light is every photographer’s ally, expose your shots to it as much as physically possible.

How I Edit My Blog Photos

Recently, I’ve been updating the way I edit the photos for both the blog and social media. Since the beginning of RSG my photos were always edited to be super bright and white, but recently I’ve changed it to be more colorful. Still bright, but more realistic for fitness pictures which are usually outdoors and have a field, track, or whatever in the background. Making it impossible to edit them to fit the usual white theme. Here’s how I edit my blog photos now.
