How to take a good picture?

One of the ways to take a good picture is to take it from higher up above our body if it's a selfie so we would look slimmer. If you want to take a selfie and take it from below, then you would look slighter more plump than you really are. Adding some lights can really help. Those with led light. When light exposure increases it can make a person look more bright.

The second factor I guess that really matters is the type of camera. Some cameras are not able to take pictures in areas with low light exposures.

If is a person in a background and if your trying to take a picture of that person in the background and at the same time make thst person look thin. Make sure that the persons leg is at the far left end of the bottom part of the camera. There is an illusion which makes a person look longer... Try to include as much detail as you can into a picture. Wear some tighter clothes that fit rather than those lose clothes so when the person takes pictures, the person in the picture looks thinner. Many people have thought that, wearing loose clothes would hide their body.

Get more practice and slowly your shots will get better and better.


Taking photos that are good results is certainly a dream for everyone who likes photography. Most people think that producing a good photo requires a new, super-sophisticated camera. Even though the technique is far more important than the device. Taking good pictures can be done by anyone and with any camera as long as it is sufficient to practice and have a passion in the field. Here are some good ways to take photos, including:

1.Compose the subject (rule of thirds)

Composition is the basic thing in photography about how we place the subject of the photo in the photo field. Photo placement which is very common for some beginners is to place it in the middle of the photo field. Try something different by not placing it in the middle. The first step that must be done is to create an imaginary line (grid) that divides the photo plane in a vertical and horizontal direction for each of the three parts. Placement of photo subjects on one third of the outside of the grid can reinforce the dynamic impression of the photo, this method is better known as rule of thirds.

2.Adjust photo shots carefully

Do not leave your photos distorted by a background that will make your photos look messy. Get rid of backgrounds that can be disruptive and disturbing. Avoid the appearance of the tree as if growing above your head as a background. You can avoid this by changing the direction of shooting photos to produce better and less messy photos.

3.Position the camera's height against the subject's eye (eyelevel)

As much as possible avoid shooting while standing against a subject that is lower than us. For example, when photographing a small child you should take the photo in a squat position so that the camera is as high as the eye level of the child.

4.Take advantage of flash

In some conditions, flash can improve the quality of photos taken. You can take advantage of this flash in the photos taken during the day to overcome the shadows that arise on the subject of human photos that interfere under the nose or eyes. This technique is known as fill in flash.

5.Try interesting angles

Don't just fix it on taking photos in just one corner. Try experimenting by taking different photo-taking angles. Find a place that allows you to be in a higher or lower position. For example, you can use a chair or stairs for a higher shooting angle, or lie on the floor to take a lower photo angle. This shooting angle variation can make it easier for you to be able to determine the best photos among them.


First, develop emotions with the scene/object/person. You need to build feelings for what you are going to capture. Give a couple of minutes to the thoughts, why do you wanna capture the photo of that specific scenery, person, object etc and what do you feel about them. Try to strengthen the feeling, this will show you, what your eyes were not seeing before and you'd be able to add more meaning & charm in the photo.

Lightning plays an important part in the photography. Learn what intensity of the light is to use. Some photos require low light, some maximum. To use shadows appropriately is also  a part of lightning strategy.

To choose the right angle is also important in capturing good photos. A slight change in angle can make the photo better or worse. Before capturing the final photo, try different angles. Now a days, with digital cameras, it is not difficult to try out different angles. With practice, you'd get better and better in utilizing the right angle for a perfect photo.

You have to understand the combination of the sensitivity and shutter movements. Their right combination will give you a great photo with right lightning effects.

Try to learn from the best. Study the work of well known photographers. You can start with the study of the photos on Steepshot as well.

Have a good day.


Today I will talk a little about the light, since the other aspects are the most talked about and we already know

Use natural light

 Do light tests

I recommend anyone to do small tests. Even if you are an amateur it would be very good to take some pictures with your cameras and underexpose and overexpose, then print and see which one looks better. "

 Work in team

I think the best thing is a complete collaboration of all. But how much collaboration you get from people depends on how much you're looking for

When I see a location, it shows me a light study, how it looks at different times of the day.

Learn to choose the right equipment

Every time I'm going to start a movie or buy a camera or start a project, I do a lot of tests. All these tests help me know how I want to work, what equipment I'm going to use, how I'm going to combine my team and so on. Like for example to know how my Nikon works. After trying and comparing with other cameras I know what that camera can do for me compared to others. 

Always take into account the dynamic range of the camera

One of the most important features for any device I'm going to use is how well it can capture a high dynamic range (HDR), that's what I needed to capture the highlights, the sky, the leftovers on the subjects' hair, and else".

 Create lookup tables (LUTs)

When I'm filming, what I do is create lookup tables that allow me to see how much information I still have in the shadows or if I'm underexposed. They are easy to create if you do filming tests and then do 2D or 3D LUts to see the shadows

Use different technologies

That is another case in which we risk our techniques. We do not mind mixing all these different technologies, so we can use GoPros and allow the actors to handle many scenes. "

Do not be afraid to get too close

The camera is probably only a few inches from your face, but the lens is so wide that you can see its entire face. Being so close you can capture things like your breathing and sweat, your blood; it becomes a good experience
