By nature photography, it means to get out in the natural world and photograph it. All and sundry loves and appreciates an alluring nature photo. It may include capturing of a snake engulfing insects, the symmetrical row of vegetation, the herd of sheep and horses, the mesmerizing sunset, the dewdrops, etc. etc. If you are a camera devotee and love photography too much then you already have taken a number of shots having nature in them. If you are new to the world of photography then it is a safe bet that you are going to love this genre of photography beyond description.
Nevertheless, many people deem that they are not capable of capturing nature to the good extent because it requires high-tech equipment and a lot of education. But in reality, there is no such thing that prevents you from capturing the good nature shots. All you have to give is your precious time, any camera (from DSLR to cell phone’s camera), dedication, and a few tips and tricks to keep in mind.
Many people take shots while keeping their subject in the middle of the frame. It is no good when you are doing nature photography. While capturing nature photography, one should place his subject, not in the center plus the capture should not be like the shots captured in the portrait studios; in which only the subject is focused and the background is the non-descriptive type. Rather, with nature photography, you should capture your subject while using the backdrop and surroundings as to complement your subject.
Another rule to abide by when you are doing nature photography is the “Rule-of-Third”. In this rule, the screen is divided into three equal length portions and most preferably the sky and horizon line is placed in the top two-third of the photograph while bottom one-third has the ground and vice versa.
You should go for different perspectives and angles when you do nature photography. We are so used to seeing the objects and things on the level of our eyes. Same we do with the photographs we capture. We should try different angles to take shots. For instance, you can lie on the ground or sit on the knees to take the shots from ground level and knee level respectively. Such different perspectives are sure to take your photographs to the whole new level.
You should take as many photos as you can. Try different perspectives and angles. Change your subject frequently. Capture using different effects. Try manual as well as auto photography modes. Quantity matters more than the quality when we talk about learning photography. Photography is an art. All arts are first learned and then practiced. However, in photography, you can practice and learn at the same time. It means you do not necessarily have to read a pile of books to study photography and then start to take shots. Rather, you can start to take photographs as soon as you get the camera in your hands.
Lastly, remember, that good photography is not about the high-tech, expensive equipment. Instead, the shot is as good as the person who takes it. There is the idea behind your capture, which makes your photograph worthy, not the device and resolution (as they are not more important than the idea itself).
