Question: Why is the photo on the left a bad shot and the photo on the right a great shot? What did I do with the good shot that I didn’t do in the other shot?
Highlights from this video:
0:04 Bad photo quality versus good photo quality
0:24 Know why the first image is not a good image
0:50 What I did to correct the image
1:03 A couple of images of Wesley in different angles
1:50 Actual Photoshoot while I was moving around
Bad Shot (head cut off by horizon)
I’m looking at some of the photos I took at the Mt. Kosciuszko when I hiked up there with my family (We were travelling). I was looking at this image and notice that:
His neck is being cut-off by the background.
The pathway kind of goes behind him and it doesn’t really show too much depth to this image.
That’s the reason why this image is not a good one.
Good Shot (head not cut-off, subject off-center)
To correct this:
I moved around and positioned Wesley off-center.
I bent my knees a little bit, so that his head isn’t being cut-off by the horizon.
I’ve got the pathway going off in the distance.
I used the flash to light up his face.
Here, I got a little bit closer. I got him to look off-camera and I used the flash to light up his face. I also bent my knees so that his neck is not being cut-off by the background. This is a much better angle.
Here’s another one that I shot. I did the similar thing; I moved around, used my flash, bent my knees, and got the pathway going. I got Wesley looking away from me.
