FOCUS AND RECOMPOSING
Good afternoon! My name is Alex Buhre of Alexander’s Photography. For those of you who don’t know, I am a photographer in the Phoenix, AZ area. Not only am I a photographer, but I’m a huge believer in the idea that we control our own destiny. I know it sounds cliche, but WE DO! Part of my evolution as a photographer and one of my biggest goals in 2017 is to start providing quick, easy to read tips that will help you start taking more interesting photos. This is also a way for me to give back to those of you who follow me and have trusted me with taking their photos. I will post one new tip every week, that you can work on to make your photos more interesting. I would absolutely LOVE to see your results as well. If you post your work on social media please include the hashtag #alexsonequicktip so that I can see your progress!!
I’ve been toying around with the idea of providing quick tips to those of you out there who are truly interested in taking better photos. I know not everyone wants to be a professional photographer, but I think everyone wants to be able to take good photos in some way shape or form. I am also a believer that providing too much information all at once does nothing for us. So thats why I came up with “One Quick Tip for Better Photos.”
I know you have a busy day, so in the spirit of keeping things short, lets begin post #1.
Post #1: Focus & Recomposing
The whole idea behind focusing and recomposing is to create a more interesting photo. Its a simple maneuver you can do just by locating your focus point and moving your camera in another direction. I’m not going to go into all of the details and technical terms of what the definition of focus and recomposing is, but you get the idea. Its a simple strategy to create a different look and feel to your photo. My video below quickly demonstrates what focusing and recomposing looks like.
Thank you again for checking out my blog, hopefully you learned something new if you’re a beginner or if you’re just trying to take more interesting photos. Try this technique at home and post your photos on social media. Remember to use the hashtag #alexsonequicktip so I can follow your progress!
