Jan 3, 2008
Do you know what kind of photos you will take? Are you going to a family meeting or gathering? Do you want to see some wildlife going out for a hike? When it comes to photography there are many questions. To provide the best photograph, you will want to have a basis of photography techniques and once you are ready with basis of photography the subject will be left to you. The majority of the photographers whether they are professional or part-time will have medium to work with. It applies the same with other artists; such as painters, sculptors, sketch artists, & more. Photography is an art & hence requires an eye for the correct or exact photograph.

How you will come to know which subject you will take for photography? This is where your interests lie. If you think of taking pictures of wildlife animals then you need to be patient till the subject come into view. Rocky Mountain National Park is an example for Wildlife Park where you can go and find subjects. It is a wonderful scene to see when elk and deer come down the mountains to mate and eat. Types of birds vary but they will be always available here. If you want to shoot a Bald Eagle, chances are more if you go to Alaska and if you go to Florida you can find Heron or Cranes.

You will have to choose your subject accordingly, when you are practicing techniques. Lot of us are regulated to the area around us. If you are not going on vacation to some new place then, you need to use the land around you in order to take the Landscape Photography. This will be an important fact when you go for choosing subject. Your traveling abilities do count. But for now we will stick close to home.

In order to go in search of subjects you need to choose your medium. You should choose the subject which speaks to you for taking nice snaps. Also, you need to check the lighting of the area, if you wish to shoot a tree and the knots it has formed. When you are deciding the subject you need to also decide the angle to shoot photographs. Sometimes lighting may not be right for the subject you have chosen and if you still proceed to take photos then it may not yield the best picture.

You need a good eye for detail observation while choosing a subject. If you can not see the subject with your plain eye then, that is the best subject to choose. Have you ever observed a tree where in a spider web is hiding in the leaves? You may even find a spider if you look closer at a tree. The pattern of a spider web helps us to take a great picture of a spider and not the technique required to have the web show up in your photo with the silky threads. We are fascinated with an organism that can create a symmetrical pattern.

For finding a subject your eye is the best tool. Choosing your subject will again depend on what is available, the angle and the light. In order to decide the subject, moving slowly through an area such as landscape will help you a lot. To find something new and different, looking under leaves or rocks is often beneficial. You will never come to know where your picture is waiting for your click. You should always carry a camera because some people and animals do things that will never again happen, so when it is happening you can just take a snap. People willing to take photography carry a camera always with them where ever they go. When this becomes a habit, a real habit becomes a hobby and it will help you to earn a good income if you are taking the right pictures. You can start displaying your pictures for others to see and possibly buy, once you become perfect at taking the pictures.
