photo technique: plan your photo year

1 Experiment with perspective Straight and eye-level is how the majority of us shoot every day, so unless you’re 4ft or 8ft tall you’re generally shooting a scene how most people see it and, well, that can be boring. Show them something different by changing your view: get on the ground, get up high or turn your camera to the sky. You may be amazed at what opportunities you’re missing by looking in the same direction everyday. Even if you shoot straight, try shooting through something else to introduce some foreground bokeh and depth, such as foliage or a window for reflections, or skew the camera to make it more dynamic – anything that alters you and your viewer's perspective of a scene. For fun, you could try forced perspective to…

photo technique: urban photography

1 Fresh perspectives Most major cities have several famous landmarks that are easily and instantly recognisable – London has Big Ben and St Paul’s cathedral, Paris has the Eiffel tower and arc de Triomphe, and so on. All have been photographed millions of times by tourists and locals – and often from similar viewpoints. Rather than standing shoulder to shoulder with camera-toting tourists, look for imaginative ways to capture these well-known structures to give an alternative and fresh viewpoint. Due to their size and proximity to other buildings, larger landmarks are usually captured using a wide-angle lens, so one option is to use a telezoom and shoot from further away, while another is to shoot from an upper level of a nearby building or multi-storey car park. One neat idea is…

phototechnique: pets

1 Capture classic behaviour The one thing you can guarantee with pets are the idiosyncrasies in their behaviour that bring pleasure to their owners on a daily basis. Whether it's the way a cat's curiosity can be guaranteed to see it trespass into boxes, cupboards or bags, or the way in which you can be sure your dog will sleep in a comical position or stare wide-eyed at you as you eat, there are plenty of ways in which you can capture cute and insightful images of your pet. Because you know how your pet will react to certain stimuli or situations, you can set up some shots and wait for your pet to take the bait. Whether it's by having someone hold a ball of wool out of frame so…

black &white

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND, and that's entirely true for trends in photography. It used to be said that black & white was too traditional and would be obsolete with the emergence of colour film, but just as coloured film effects have re-emerged in digital photography, the appeal of black & white has arguably never been stronger. It’s a classic: it can be reinvented but it never falls out of favour. Capturing colourful images can be like searching through chaos to find the perfect combination. Spectrum colours can confuse, they can distract a viewer from the point of interest and there’s a million-and-one ways to use it for different impacts. But black & white simplifies a scene by stripping back an image to its bare essentials and letting you concentrate on…

an introduction to mono

VIBRANT SUNSETS and rainbows, sparkling deep blue eyes and creamy skin tones, it isn’t a surprise that colour photography gets so much glory. But, as wonderful as colour is, it’s also familiar and realistic, making us slightly uncomfortable when those colours don't look natural. Black & white, on the other hand, may not work for every image, but when it does it’s considered an art form. It strips away any distractions colour may bring, steps the image away from real life and gives you limitless creative control over its impact and atmosphere. Our response to a black & white image is also usually much more emotive than with colour; the subject matter almost becomes irrelevant as light and shadow, texture and shape are all brought to the forefront. As long as…
