New Photography Challenge:
Submit images that use one of our 6 Simple Tips for creating stunning photographs.
You might remember our 6 Simple Tips for creating better images. This time, we’d like to encourage you to either create or find images in your archives that relate to one of the 6 tips.
Let us know which tip your images refer to and send photos at
900 px wide and 72 DPI to email@example.com.
DEADLINE: next Thursday, April 22
If you run into sizing issues just send what you have and we can size it for you.
And feel free to submit up to 3 different photos of either the same tip or of 3 different ones. For a bit of inspiration, here are examples with Magrit’s photos for each tip:
Keep Your Photos Simple
Too many details distract the viewer. A busy scene makes it difficult to create a beautiful composition. Pick a Star/Hero (i.e. the most important element in your scene).
Shoot From A Different Angle
Don’t just shoot straight on but try to position yourself above, below, and at different sides of your scene or object.
Capture Close-Up Detail & Abstracts
A great closeup can be more powerful for telling a story and creating an atmosphere.
Compose your shot so that both halves of the photo are (almost) identical and mirror each other.
Look for Patterns
Repeated elements can form interesting patterns.
Show Depth In Your Photos With Leading Lines
Creating depth helps draw the viewer’s eye into the scene. Roads, paths, stairways, and rivers all make excellent leading lines.
