Great Photography Tips

We’ve put together some ideas to improve your photography. Not everything can be done in Photoshop!

Whilst great editing skills (the ones you’ll learn on our Photoshop course), can make a world of difference, getting a great image in the first place is essential. Even if you are already a pro, sometimes it’s quite good to remind yourself of what’s possible. Revisit some old techniques and styles, or simply get some inspiration or ideas for new projects.

1/ Think about the environment surrounding your subject – what do you include? What do you leave out?

What you include in an image will make or break it

2/ Watch the backgrounds, they can work for or against your subject, try depth of field to isolate subjects or emphasise their surroundings. Use a small F number (big aperture). Most cameras will allow you to select f4, some even less.

Isolate your subject – Get close to your subject, make sure there is enough distance between your subject and the background. And use a big aperture (small F number)

3/ Try and capture personality in an image

Talk to people try and get the essence of who they are in an image

4/ Opportunities are all around, always take a small camera with you.

How to Spot a Photoshopped Image

As people become more adept at manipulating digital photography (for instance, by coming on our Photoshop course!) – and as the technology for it advances – it is becoming more and more tricky to spot a photoshopped image. So where do you start?

Look at the colours

Nothing gives an image more of the wow-factor than extreme colours – especially with landscapes, skies and eyes. Usually, if it’s too good to be true then it’s probably been photoshopped.

Changing colours is simple to do in the software, with extreme results.

Check the eyes

Speaking of eyes, if the photo is of a person, check the whites closely. Publications will often whiten the eye to make it less cloudy or remove the small pink veins that should show in every photo.
