Intro To Photographic Techniques

This week and last we covered basic techniques of how to take better photographs using rules. We learnt about leading lines, the rule of thirds and making best use of colour to ensure our photographs stand out. We then went onto using the camera in a professional manner taking advantage of all the functions to control shutter speed, aperture and ISO.

A great website with loads of random tutorials is ‘Life Hacker’ (the name says it all!). They have some great resources around using your camera and getting the best out of it. Check out their photography guide below. It’ll remind you of loads of the things we’ve covered and add few more tips and tricks too!
