What is it that your eyes find so fascinating? This can be the positioning of different objects, specific objects or the colours you see. Once you have known what is interesting, you should aim at omitting noise and distractions. Remember that people who see your pictures will not know if there is anything that has not been included in the frame. In general, you should omit objects that compete for attention whenever you are shooting photos.

Consider the Dynamic Range of Your Eyes

This refers to the extremes of darks and lights that you can see concurrently. The human eyes have a high dynamic range that allows them to see dark objects against a bright background. Camera’s dynamic range is much lower than that of human eyes. This is why you find it hard to capture whatever you see. Ideally, eyes can sell better than cameras.  If possible, you should try to get the face of the subject bright. It is impossible to see the extremes of dark and light at the same time when shooting photos. You can get a clear image by adjusting the scene to make it light or dark.

Aperture Control

An experienced photographer should be capable of figuring out the shutter speed. This is done by adjusting the camera’s aperture settings. A wide aperture is known for narrowing the depth of focus. The depth of focus is increased by using a small aperture.

Careful Composition

This is done by contracting or expanding upon the feel of a photo. Some photographers have cameras that can zoom in/out the subject. Most of them have been sacrificing the range of their composition possibilities by refusing to move far away or closer to their subject. Moving your feet farther out or close to the subject is highly recommended. This can help you in capturing the surroundings and making the subject larger.

Being ready

The photographer can capture memorable images by making sure that he/she is in a perfect position. You should remember that moments come and go very quickly. It is vital to ensure that your camera is ready. You should also double check the camera settings.
