No matter how stable your camera is, its stability is completely useless when shooting moving objects. Only a short shutter speed will help freeze the movement. This is why when…

Can I fix the errors later?

As for the exhibition, no, you can’t. Overexposure is not allowed in digital photography. Even if you shoot in RAW, the capabilities of RAW converters (contrary to the assurances of the developers) are very limited in terms of pulling out the knocked-out lights. Underexposure is easier to fix, although the cost will be to increase the noise level in the shadows. The correct white balance setting is not critical when shooting in RAW – you can easily change the balance when converting. Correcting the wrong white balance in a JPEG file can be a very time-consuming, though feasible, task. However, I prefer to set the white balance as soon as possible, even when shooting in RAW. This allows me to more accurately assess the exposure on individual channels using a color histogram, and in addition, my images look more aesthetically pleasing even before converting to JPEG.

Composition is the most important aspect of artistic photography. Composition is the art of placing various elements of an image in the most harmonious way that meets the creative intent of the author and allows him to convey his thoughts and feelings to the viewer to the fullest extent.

The gaze of a person looking at a scene is far from chaotic. First of all, he tries to cover the most significant elements that attract his attention, in descending order of their attractiveness, then runs around the entire available field of view, assessing the relationship between important objects, and almost without dwelling on insignificant details, and then returns to the semantic center.

Tonal range values

The tone of a photographic image is determined by the proportions in which black, white, and gray tones are correlated.

Degrees of tonality in photography
The human eye recognizes up to three hundred steps between white and black. In a black-and-white image, there can be up to thirty tones (long tonal scale) or up to ten tonal shades (short scale).

Moderation in the number of tones sometimes provides a photo with greater expressiveness. By eliminating the middle tones, you will get rid of non-essential elements, and photos taken in a certain key will turn out to be very effective.

Area of interest
You must be deeply interested in the subject. Without this, your images will remain lifeless. If you, the photographer, are not interested in the subject, how can you hope that…

Don't confuse composition with framing. Framing determines the direction of the view and the field of view, and composition determines the relative position of objects. By pointing the camera in…
