Why don’t you know the shooting parameters and make a good film?
Format, aperture, exposure time, focal length, ISO… these seemingly “important” information can not make a perfect picture in many cases.Many photographers know that the shooting parameters of the photos, even if they are clear to the heart, are not of great significance, because you cannot experience the footprints of others, even if you can, “God” will not give you the same “scenery”; Even if you can, other people’s “realm and vision” is not something you can copy
1. You can copy equipment, but you don’t know how to use it
Which do you think is important, “camera” or “head behind camera”?The former is a tool, and the latter is the driver of the tool, which is equally important.
But the same device drivers have different results. There are many techniques for camera manipulation, such as push-pull exposure, long exposure and local light control, multiple exposure, and so on. These seemingly simple tips can play a good role in a specific environment. The key is how you manage them.Don’t care too much about the shooting parameters. You can’t copy these shooting ideas.
2. You can copy parameters, but have no perception of “beauty”
When it comes to the “shooting parameters” of photos, it may be the most unreliable data.The decision to use ultra-shallow depth of field, ultra-long exposure or other special parameters is not determined by casual perception, but by the photographer’s observation of the subject, in order to create a “more artistic” visual effect.“Beauty” is the original intention. The shooting parameters of a good work can only produce a waste film if you use another scene.
3. You can copy skills, but it is difficult to copy the sense of picture
“Picture sense” is the key problem to be solved in the visual performance of photography.Different shooting techniques and performance techniques can make the picture different. But the prerequisite is that you should first have a sense of “beauty” in your head, and then choose the appropriate shooting method. Otherwise, you may learn to walk in Handan.
4. You can copy the scenery, but you can’t wait for the favor of “God”
The beauty of scenery lies not in the scenery itself, but in the “time and light” given by “God”. Anyone can take photos of the same scenery at any time, but there are very few photographic works. The reason is very simple – they are not favored by “God”. Not “God” is mysterious, but you just gave up waiting when she came.
5. You can copy the composition, but you don’t know the choice
The choice is a refining process and also a reprocessing process of the shooting theme. Don’t rigidly apply the so-called “classic composition” rule. How should the theme be highlighted, how should the accompaniment set off the theme, and how can the content irrelevant to the subject be avoided? These problems have not been properly considered. Even using “classic composition” can not save the results of inferior works.
6. You can copy time, but don’t seize the opportunity
If time is compared to composition, timing is the golden point. An excellent photographic work is often related to time and opportunity. Different subjects have different golden time points. The war documentary seeks danger, the character capture seeks state, and the sports photography seeks potential. Only by learning to capture the wonderful in the ever-changing world can we make “blockbusters and blockbusters”.
7. You can copy the perspective, but you can’t copy the “vision”
The difference between perspective and vision is simple. The former is to find a good seat, shoot and finish; The latter is to find all the better seats, or to create their own seats, and then wait for the best time to shoot; Change the plane position the next day, and take pictures at the best time… until you get your ideal picture. In short, it is the process from quantitative change to qualitative change. No master photographer is a “master of opportunity for good luck forever”.
8. You can copy ideas without drawing inferences
The greatest charm of photography is to take new ideas and make it different. The routine of photography is just a little bit, but it can take ever-changing pictures, which depends on the thinking brain. Copy Other people’s ideas can only take pictures that are comparable to those of others. If you want to improve, you must learn to think for yourself. Better fish than fish!
