When it comes to taking pictures it might seem like an easy task, just press the capture button, but trust me, photography is way more than just pressing the capture button. So what exactly is photography?

Photography is a Vision

Pictures have different angles. Every angle of a picture captured speaks for photographer’s perspective. It reveals characteristics of his personality. Therefore, the angle you choose must not be a distorted one.

Photographs are Stories

Every picture has a story behind it, a precious memory that one wants to hold close to heart forever. Sometimes, a picture is revealing enough to tell a full version of that memory or story. These stories are sometimes a decade old and sometimes, as recent as the one that relates to the last minute. For instance, professional wedding photographers must focus on saving every grin around them, every moment that makes a wedding special and every drop of tear that an individual sheds, because it all matters to those around him and in that moment, it is all that should matter to a photographer.

What are the skills needed to be a photographer?

You must always remember that he object or the person you are taking a picture of, is not aware of the position, the posture, the pose, or the surrounding that might make the picture look better. It is the job of the photographer to ensure all these categories are in perfect alignment of each other before capturing a picture.

Some tips that can help you become a better photographer

·         Never make an object the center of focus when capturing a picture. The surroundings are as important as the object itself. If you do so, you may end up making the viewers see only that object and none else.

·         Don’t be too quick to take action. Take all your time, decide your angle, and ensure the surrounding is good enough for a picture to look perfect. Wait for the bird to spread its wings, wait for the light to reflect the best corner, wait for the subject to take the best position. Good things happen to those who are patient.

·         Adjust your focus to give enough attention to the subject all the while not ignoring the surroundings that helps make the subject pop out.

Editing Software

Once a remarkable photograph has been captured the next thing is to focus on the editing of the image.

Post production is mostly a significant part of every professional photographer’s final outcome. Here’s a brief description of some tools you might consider important in your work:



We’ve all heard of Adobe. It is indeed one of the most popular editing software in the world, so much that people now refer to the image-editing process by Adobe’s branded term “Photoshopping”.

Besides that, Adobe’s extremely fascinating features, such as crop, effects, text, exposure, brightness, allows you to simply recreate the original picture into a better version of it.

Corel Paintshop Pro

Even though it’s by far the most popular, Adobe isn’t the only efficient image editing software in existence; there are a quite a number of others we also give the stamp of approval. The Corel Paintshop Pro brand, for example, offers a wide variety of fascinating post-production products for photographers and is undoubtedly considered the best in the industry.

Because the full version of Corel Paint Pro is almost equally expensive as the full Adobe Photoshop, many argue that it is rather better to use Adobe given its outstanding functionality and features.

Free Providers
There are a handful of other software that comes with no strings of costs attached. They are absolutely free and are as reliable as Adobe. The features they provide may not be equally effective but they are good enough to provide somewhat better post –pro
