25 Tips for taking perfect landscape photos

Although at first glance landscape photography may seem very simple, in fact it is much more than “point the camera – click the shutter”. The purpose of landscape photography is to convey the inner state, to express something more, and not just to show the landscape in front of you.

Tips for creating a female portrait

What type of portrait to choose, in what format is better to shoot, how to reveal the best in the model and what to focus on.
Why are some people considered photogenic and others not? And how can a photographer, especially a beginner, get around this concept and make portraits that are pleasing to the eye, delight your model and tell your story?
Any genre of photography requires practice. For portrait shooting, especially shooting female portraits, you need to be able to not only choose the right equipment and camera settings – although this, of course, is very important. The second part of the case is the ability to see and show the character of the model, convey the mood, use details and build a story.
As for photogenicity, it’s not how people look in the photo, but how they feel and lead in front of the camera. And the task of the photographer is to break down the barriers, to help the model feel confident, and then to find angles, poses and lights that will hide the flaws and emphasize the dignity and strengths of the person.
