5 Quick Tips for Summer Photography
When summer rolls around, it means a few things. It means shorts, skirts, and t-shirts. It means tans. And it means more time outside. You’ll probably go on a few holidays, and you’ll likely want to capture all of the fun and the barbeques on your camera.
Making the most of this is a matter of choosing the right tools for the job and the right approaches to photography. So with that in mind, read on and let’s take a look at 5 powerful tips for taking better summer photos.
Think About Light
You might think that the summer sun would create the perfect conditions for taking beautiful photos. In fact though, you might find yourself sometimes actually working against the sun to get your shots.
The problem is that a very bright day actually creates very ‘flat’ light, with fewer shadows and shapes. The other issue is that you’ll often find yourself shooting into the sun.
A good idea then, is to take those photos under some shade, or even wait until the ‘golden hour’ just as the sun starts setting in the sky and those shadows get longer.
Tell the Story
This is important no matter what type of photography you’re dealing with. The point of a photo is not just to capture the thing that’s happening, but also to capture the mood, and the events that may have led up to that moment. Taking a photo of a bottle of sun cream, or the sun breaking through the trees can be a great way to tell that story.
Take Some Natural Shots
There’s no better way to tell a story though than to get some natural shots of your friends and family having fun. This way, you can capture the authentic mood of the day, and you can avoid photos looking overly staged or flat.
It’s tricky to get a photo that is both natural and flattering though, so try giving that ‘burst mode’ a go. Take a bunch of photos and use the best ones.
The temptation when taking summer photography is to try and create an emotion by using a filter of some sort or specific camera settings. You may for example, wish to increase the saturation, or maybe add a film fade effect. Maybe you even choose to go black and white!
While this is a fine idea, it unfortunately also means that you’re going to be reducing the amount of information your photos contain. In fact, the best way to get your photos is to use very flat colors with minimal contrast, regular colors, and no filter.
Why? Because you can apply those filters after the fact: but you can’t remove the filters or add the color in!
Choose Interesting Scenery
Finally, make sure that you avoid taking lots of boring scenery shots. The worst photos to come back to after an amazing holiday is a huge folder containing shot after shot of flat scenery. It’s never as exciting as you remember it!
Take a few of the scenery for your phone wallpapers etc. But for the most part: photos are better with you in them!
