19 Dic The 6 indispensable tools to make photographies of 10 with few means
Certainly the day that you decided to undertake with a digital project not you hoped that you were going away to turn into an authentic Swiss knife, with thousand of knowledge, able to solve thousands of problems of all type. That if design, that if computer science, that if css, that if social security, administration, networks, sale and many things more. Your single one you will suddenly have to make all the tasks that in your old company 23 different departments did. And friend, among them is the photography. Thus she is.
I am very in favor of delegating tasks, because to try to include it everything it is healthy neither for you nor for your company. But on the other hand I think that you must have a basic knowledge of all the aspects of your company for 2 reasons:
- In order to know what each task entails whenever you delegate a professional
- In order to make tasks of maintenance of the day to day.
In the case of the photography, it is necessary that you have some basic knowledge to know what it costs to him to a photographer to do a customized session to you and so that you can carry out tasks of the day to day. An example is the photos of the social networks or for the covers of your posts. Certainly for that you would not contract a professional so that it does a session every 3 days to you, truth?
Now, which you must know is that the photography, next to the design of your brand, composes your corporative image that is all the visual set that is in charge to transmit all values and to attract I publish suitable. So you must be always coherent, choose a style and to be faithful to it. Because it does not have any sense that you have a super Web with a designed good logo, and that everything is accompanied of homemade and little professional images.
But I do not want that you are oppressed, you do not think about that you will have to invest thousands of Euros in a team to whom very surely you will not remove the maximum party to him. I am going to notify very good to you: in order to make good photos it is not necessary to spend much money. Yes, it is truth. You can even obtain it with your mobile, if it is of average discharge range (for example a Samsung Galaxy or an iPhone of the last models). The only thing that it is necessary is to spend a little time to you in learning some tricks and rules, to incorporate them to your routine and already you will see that easy he is everything.
Today I have come to the blog of Mireia to tell you as they are my favorite tools to make impeccable photographies with few means. Because although I work with a professional camera, thousands of times I resort movable to make photos. You the story here.
The 6 tools essential to secure photos of 10
Without a doubt the tool number 1 to make photos. Without light there are no photos, and photography comes from foto=luz and grafa=escritura. That is to photograph is to write with the light. In our most recommendable case it is to use the light of the day. Also artificial lights could be used, but this requires knowledge more technicians than they are not incumbent to us. So if you do not have natural light, you do not make photos. Wait for to you to when you have the possibility of taking advantage of it, because the results will be worth the trouble.
It tries to avoid the direct light of the sun, takes advantage of a shadow zone if outdoors or you are become blurred (with a white curtain for example) if you are in interior. This because the direct light of the sun makes very hard shades and whether is to do a same photo to you, as a objects, these shades can alter to much the final result. If you decide on a type of stumped light, there will be too no hard shades, and the protagonist of the photo will leave in her maximum splendor!

If you use your mobile to do photos you must take care of very many the composition since you do not have the possibility of controlling other options of form manual as in a professional camera. So the composition chooses that better favors to your photography.
In this post I am not going away to speak at length on this subject, because it would give for a whole book, but want to give you some ideas to be investigating by your account.
- The first rule of composition that you must know is the rule of the thirds, that will help you to place the center of interest of your photography in the suitable place.
For it, you must divide your image in three thirds and place the center of interest in the lines or the crossings between the lines. These points are those that wake up much more attention in our brain.
It is not a rule that there is to follow strictly, but it can give many ideas you even to air playing and exploring. Test to vary the horizon, if to place it in the line of above giving importance to the Earth or down to give importance to the sky. It plays with the objects, the pictures, places the subjects to a side, to another one, above or down. And in the end it decides what is the photography that more interest wakes up to you.
Example regulates of the thirds
- It also takes care of very many the lines, that is not any twisted line, for example the line of a twisted horizon gives the idea of a photo done without thinking and too much affection.
- The USA the repetition of objects that wake up interest, to create textures and landlords.
¢ The USA the law of the glance to leave space in the side did where the glance of the protagonist goes.
The photo has more space in the side did where the protagonist of this photo looks
- Stuffed the frame or leaves negative spaces (empty), bends, raises you to you a chair, proves new angles, throws imagination to him.
Example of negative space that is the space of the empty sky

He will be your best friend if you want to have some impeccable photos. You can buy one small one that has adapter for the mobile. You will not need more! Your photos will leave without moving and you will be able to study with very many more calm their composition. If beams photos to objects you can for example use the zenithal angle (from above) and the tripod will help you to control much generally the lines and the balance of the photo. In order to photograph to you same a tripod so that it leaves a natural photo, without raised arms and rare glances to the purest style is indispensable selfie. These photos leave them for a holiday between friendly. ð
If you use the tripod becomes necessary this other tool: the autodisparador. This will allow you to have photos without rare movements, focused well and detailed. It places your mobile in the tripod, chooses the time of the trigger, you place your frame, you push the button and ready!
He is brilliant to cause that the photo has the light a little more uniform. There are times that although you have followed my advice of point 1, are continued creating very rare and ugly shades. There the use of a reflector is perfect, that indeed reflects the light and it distributes it of a more uniform form.
You do not have to spend a dineral to you: with taking a cardboard piece and you surround it in aluminum paper previously wrinkled (to distribute the light to all the angles) you already have the work done. Prove it and tell so me that.
For my without adjustment there is no photo. There is people who think that to alter a photo it is as some full silicone lips: zero natural one. Then from my point of view the adjustment of a photo is rather as pintalabios red. It heightens the beauty that already you have. If you do not put it, it does not pass anything, but you put it, you dazzle. Then with the adjustment the same. You could not alter a photo that well is fitted, with good light and good composition. But I assure to you that if you heighten the brightness and the resistance to him, you correct the lines and little more, your photo will really shine.
So that you see an example, I put an analogical photo to you that I have scanned and that in case it does not need adjustment because it has a quite good light. But I applied a minimum adjustment to him, to straighten the lines and to increase a little the brightness, and without a doubt It has gained much quality. What you think?
Good I hope that these advice have inspired to you to explore new forms to make photos, so that you can take care of your personal brand and transmit all the professionalism that your already you own. If you want to deepen more on the personal brand, the graphical design and the photography, I give this guide to you to learn to design your own logo. In addition as every week new and fresh contained shipment, certainly you will be able to learn a pile with my help.
