Tips for young photographers from Carolyn Hassan, competition judge and Director of Knowle West Media Centre on how to take a good photo
- Try taking your photo from an unusual angle
Look at things from up high or from down low. Move the camera and your body around. An interesting photo often shows the viewer something familiar but from a different viewpoint.
- Look at what’s closest to the camera, and furthest away
Where do you want the audience to focus? What’s the most important element in the photo frame?
- There are no rules
Try to show things as you see, or feel them to be.
- And one last one:
Think of your safety and others safety while taking your photos.
