Daily Dose: Concise Photography
“You need to remember that sometimes what you leave out is just as important as what you put in the shot.”
Simon is a London based photographer that in this quote describes one of the most common amateur mistakes; trying to fit everything into the view finder. Nowadays with digital photography and Photoshop, you can safely keep in mind that you can just crop out whatever doesn’t look good and click away madly at the scenes around you. The merit behind this quote is that with pure photography, you simply don’t need the post-processing (editing) stage if you’re that good. This is similar in cinematography where you can add in computer generated images and bad special effects while all of that can be achieved better if it were shot correctly the first time. As long as you’re the one pointing the camera, you have the power to compose a great shot. Don’t muddy it up with the unnecessary.
