[My photography School]- For the click of Love: Photography as a passion in today's era

Photography as passion

Photos tell many stories. A single picture can sum up an event, observe an animal’s behavior, and
portray a sense of place. A group of images by a particular photographer can show much more, though. Within lies the heart of the photographer and what his or her passion is.

To be a nature photographer today takes being able to adapt to a wide variety of subjects and create great images of all of them. But everyone who puts an eye to the viewfinder is reacting to something that excites him or her when the shutter button is pressed. Anyone can take a photo. Making that photo stand out from the crowd takes something special.

The word “passionate” might cause many photographers to shy away, but it’s this feeling that comes through when others look at an image and walk away knowing they liked that photo more than similar shots they’ve seen. Without a passion for the photographic process, the photographer should put down the camera for good a true knowledge and love for what’s in front of the camera.

Besides pursuing a particular subject that really excites you, there’s another way to let your passion for photography come through—in the overall process. I find great enjoyment in bringing out the detail of a subject.

Using your eye to create an interesting composition helps draw the viewer into the main part of your photo, instead of leaving him or her to search the picture to see what you wanted him to see.

So here are some tips of how to click a good photograph with your zeal and passion in  your stream:-
1) find a good foreground - foregrounds add depth and best add punch too.
2) use visual elements to direct your viewers attention to what's important.Framing a picture is one effective tool.
3) a good camera with a good mega pixel.You can click a good photo with a phone too.
4)the most important thing to keep in mind - the speed  of acquisition both on camera and on lenses are far more important.

The best way to improve your photography is to click as many pictures as you can.Shooting  anything and getting experience will help you and more techniques for you to use. Always carry around a camera and point to anything that catches your eye.
Developing a creative eye is about seeing things in a different way; a personal visual opinion rather than an obvious point of view.
When we first use a camera we take pictures of all the obvious things around us, landmarks, people we know, family pets, etc. This is all a very necessary part of learning photography and after repeatedly taking these pictures, boredom starts to creep in.
If we get bored enough, we tend to look further than the obvious for our photographic subjects, hopefully encouraging us to interpret these subjects in a different manner – but, as we so often see, some people continuously take boring pictures, until they become experts at doing so.
The problem is that we all have pre-conceived ideas about how something should look, and that is what we photograph, so if we want to be creative we must drop these pre-conceptions, and start looking at things from a small child’s “innocence”.

What would a worm see if it looked up? 
Spend a day taking photos of everyday things from a height of 600mm to 800mm, how a small child would view them.
Isolate part of an overall scene, using the camera’s viewfinder.
Show things how they are not normally viewed.
Use light creatively, to show texture.
Give mood to, or produce silhouetted shapes.
Use telephoto lenses for landscapes, wide angle lenses for portraits.
Take photos into the sun.
Take pictures while jumping in the air.
Place horizons where you want them to be.

After a while creative vision becomes as natural as breathing, and when this occurs, you can concentrate on capturing the moment:
The peak of action.

A fleeting glance.
Certain lighting conditions.
At last I just want to say -- Stay focused and start to create your own style. 

Start out by simply practicing as much as possible and don’t worry if you make mistakes, even the pros make mistakes believe me! 

Take your camera everywhere with you and shoot as much as you can. Don’t just take hundreds of shots and delete the poor ones. 

Analyze, Why they are poor and learn from them. Look at the settings used, look at the light, what went wrong and ask yourself how can you correct it? 

The more you practice, the better you will become, guaranteed, and the day will come when you know finally your kit inside out and you will also know how to deal with any situation that arises by making the right adjustments to your camera, lens, composition and lighting. That day is a great day believe me!
Cheers to all amateur photographers !!!
