Each season has its peculiarities if we speak in photographic terms. We've previously listed some easy tricks for taking photos in the fall, and now it's summer's turn . What must we take into account to obtain the best snapshots in these hot times?
Here are some easy tricks for taking photos in summer . Feel free to put them all into practice and learn more about the exciting art of photography..
Beware of backlights
When taking photos in summer, always bear in mind the position of the sun . Always try to take the photos with the star at your back and, preferably, at sunset time, which is when you can see the most beautiful images. If the photo takes place with the sun directly above, try to modify the perspective of the photo so that the model does not create unflattering shadows.
Use fill flash
Flash light is not only used to illuminate scenes at night. If the photo against the light is inevitable, do not forget to activate it, since it will act as a fill light and the portrait will be better. However, if you can avoid the flash and limit yourself to taking photos with natural lighting, so much the better..
Don't forget to align the horizon
Few things look worse in a beach photo than a lopsided horizon. Make use of the composition cells that you can find in your mobile's camera settings. In this way, you can guide yourself so that the horizon is as straight as possible.
Shadows are your friends
So many hours of sunshine correspond to infinity of shadows cast by objects. Before taking a shot, look at them to see if you can take advantage of them : look at the ones that the trees project or even those from a hat to make an original portrait..
Don't forget to protect your phone on the beach
If you protect your phone properly, you can even take snapshots from the water. To do this, you must put the mobile in a waterproof bag with IPX8 protection. Your smartphone must return safely from vacation.
