I love Indian festivals! I get to look at all the amazing costumes, bright, colourful, joyful.
Now, you are a creative and imaginative writer. Maybe you could consider photography as fine art. There are some simple things that will improve composition and picture quality no end.
Frame your image, for example. If taking a portrait, don’t aim the camera at their face — although you need the eyes to be in focus — that just gives you a pile of blank space over their heads, when what is more important is their body, their posture, their feet on the ground.
The eye is drawn to the brightest point in an image, so lighting is crucial in photography. Ideally, the focus of the image should be something our eyes seek out; a smile, the “catchlights” in the person’s eyes, an item of jewelery. You don’t need a fancy camera to make great photographs. A phone, nowadays, is sufficient.
Britni, who can take a lot of looking at those works of art you call clothes!
