Goodbye winter. Hello Sunshine.
Spring is all about colour, new life and lots of daylight. For a photographer there is nothing better than having a whole new world of landscape come alive to be captured through the lens.
Here are 7 photography tips you need to know this spring:
Pay attention to your white balance
When trying to capture great colours, make sure you adjust your white balance so what you see on your screen matches what you see with your eye! Trying to match a lighter colour closely is a great way to gauge the accuracy of your adjustments & save your incredible shots with a photo print!
2. Adjust to the outdoors
After the long months indoors, when finally heading outside for some spring photography, make sure you take a few minutes to adjust the settings on your camera to account for the change in lighting.
3. Use a polarising filter
Use a polarising filter to capture all the great colours for those springtime landscape shots! Become the artist of your own home & decorate your walls with stunning landscape shots – taken by you, printed on a premium canvas.
4. Bright sun
Spring is a great opportunity to take some photos outdoors or on the beach. Just remember to use fill flash. The bright sun creates harsh shadows – especially if someone is wearing a hat or sunglasses – but forcing your flash to go off even in the bright sun will illuminate those shadowy areas.
5. More than flowers
Springtime is a great time for photos of the new flowers coming out, but do not forget that there’s a whole wide world! Look for budding trees, dogs playing outside, and people enjoying the first bits of real warmth for other spring themed shots. Group all your shots in a stunning photo book!
6. Lose the horizon
If you have found a field of flowers ready for shooting, try eliminating the horizon for a slightly unrealistic effect. This style of photography looks great printed on a photo block!
7. Try a long exposure
Are you looking to try something new with your outdoor photos this spring? Try a drag landscape: Pan the camera upwards during a long exposure and it will give you a totally new effect!
