Whenever you click a photograph for anyone they believe in you that you will give them the best shot. Beauty is not only in the subject but also in your hands and the way you think to click a photograph. A perfect shot can be taken by following few steps or by keeping few things to do in mind.
Mindset is very important and specially while clicking a photo make a rough plan in your mind to give your best shot. It is always wise to have a rough plan about the location, back drop and lighting condition. We often worry about the back drop before clicking a picture especially when it is a group photograph. An ideal back drop for a portrait is clean wall or something that is not distracting. A backdrop has to plain or a wall with simple texture or painted with one colour. A backdrop should not be like this that it over-hampered your photo.
Make sure that the area or location where you are clicking your photo has enough light available so that your photo has a nice balance of light. Good and proper lighting adds to the quality of photograph. Next thing you should be careful is with your attire. The people or group which is posing for you should be nicely dress. Nicely dress doesn’t means that they are wearing too much make-up or dress up in shabby clothes. It just that they should go with the theme of your click.
Sometimes it happen that photographer feels shy or hesitate to direct their subject. It may happen that you have better idea in your mind then your subject. You should always remember that clicking a perfect shot is all in your hands. So, one should never hesitate to direct their subject. Make your group pose the way you want to and give your best shot.
Most importantly always remember to take multiple shots and choose the best click among them. Just by clicking a single shot, you are not done with your work.
One must pay a attention in the positioning of a people also while capturing a photo. Always keep in mind that you are clicking a photograph of your subject. Focus on your subject and forget everything around the beauty of background or other things near to your subject. Just think about your subject and theme and focus on beauty of your subject only. Before clicking a shot, make your subject comfortable and relaxed. Also, it is advisable to take a shot of smaller group as it is easy to handle and moreover you can easily pay attention to each one present in a group photo. If your are planning to take a photo of larger group you should be prepare before hand as it requires a lot of management.
