Car meets are really fun to attend and as a photographer they can be enjoyable, or they can a headache because you can end up not capturing great shots. The following are 5 tips in ensuring you capture great shots when you attend a car meet.
Yesterday I got the chance to stop by a local car meet and was limited to just an iphone camera. It has been a while since I visited without my Canon DSLR... I felt like I would not be able to capture as great high definition shots that I would be able to really enjoy. So of course there was better than average cards at the event... that's how it happens right? So this beauty above was parked and was the first car that stood out. For this shot, I squatted down and waited for people to get out of the way... So the below are some ways you can still capture great photos without a high end DSLR.
You've practiced and taken many shots and you find yourself looking at your photos like they need an extra something. That's when you decide to do some editing. There are tons and tons of applications that can do this either web, computer or smart phone applications. I am guilty of over doing it but as time goes by i noticed my photos themselves were getting better in terms of eye catching. I now try to limit my editing because it takes away from the initial efforts of capturing my subject at the best possible angle. Below are some examples of my before and afters that I feel would help you see that editing should be used to make a good photo even better.
When I started taking photos I did not have a DSLR, only an Iphone and as a result I found that I could not Zoom in and get long distance shots so I did the opposite and real close to my subject and began to shoot. What I noticed is that you can really capture a different world entirely by being up close and taking shots that someone else may not care about because they are used to the typical photo shooting. Below are a few tips if you find yourself only shooting with a mobile device or a small camera that is limited with Zooming.
I have been doing photography for a little over a year and the learning curve in photography is steep and rough. There are many things that make a photograph unique and special and one of those techniques is composition. Placing the subject in the right angle can make all the difference. Below are a few shots that I took that are good examples of composition. The following 3 tips can help you the next time you shoot create a unique look to your photo by taking the shot at a different angle. Use your surroundings and take many shots to have the best one shown.
