I hope that you found the last few pointers for getting good pictures helpful. Perhaps you have tried them out. Let me know what you think in the comment section below! Today I have part two with a few more pointers for taking photographs in the park. Create beautiful photos and the the memories begin!
Point of View
This tip is super easy and very doable! Shooting from different points of view can create different messages for the viewer. Taking into consideration what you are photographing will help with getting the point of view. So for example if you are taking a shot of your child as they watch a parade, get down on their level. Pictures taken only from the photographer's eye level tend to have the same exact feel. Consider mixing it up by taking photographs from down low, up high, on the subjects level, from the back, far, near, be creative!
Look around when taking pictures to find arch ways, trees, open breezeways, holes, etc. By using these naturally existing frames, you can draw attention to the subject of your photographs. These are fun photos to take especially at Disney World because there are so many opportunities throughout the property.
Our eyes love lines in photographs. The lines lead your eye to other points in the picture and even out of the picture. It's easy to find these lines when setting up a photograph and use them to your advantage. One of my favorite pictures to take in Disney World has leading lines...the waterway below the castle leads your eyes to the main focus, Cinderella Castle!
I would love to hear back from you once you get a chance to practice with some of these composition techniques and especially once you try them out at Disney World! It would be cool to see some of your photographs using these techniques!
