The 5 most used photography techniques [video]

The message The 5 Most Overused Photography Techniques first appeared on Digital Photography School. It is written by Caz Nowaczyk.

In this video, James Popsys discusses what he thinks are the 5 most used photographic techniques. Take a look and see if you agree with this.

1. Give water photos with long exposures

James points out that photographers who always use long exposures when water is nearby may miss the scene's true story. They can miss the ripples, textures, etc. that are available in the real scene.

He also indicates how he likes to imagine himself in a scene, and finds that some of these long exposures all feel too unreal. He knows he could never experience that in real life.

What do you think about that?

2. Panorama ' s

James loves panoramas & has done a lot of it himself. The problem he has with him is that he thinks some people who shoot at them cannot decide what their focus point should be, so they try to capture it all.

Do you agree with that?

He believes that good photos are all about subtraction and getting things out of the shot to make the message stronger. So to create a good panorama, everything you capture must be interesting. Or else you have to change the perspective and your composition to get a better photo.

They are also not great for viewing on digital media.

3. Add foreground interest

James states that it is always necessary to have a point of attention in the foreground and that it can sometimes dilute what is already an interesting photo.

4. Golden hour

Jaymes is not a fan of photography during Golden Hour, because he believes that color overwhelms the subject. The light becomes the story instead of the place. The light steals the show. Photos can also be very similar because it is about light and not about composition or story.

Shooting at other times of the day improves your compositional skills.

5. Air replacements

Jaymes is not a fan of sky replacements. They become too clear and they look fake. He finds it outdated and unfair.

What do you think? Are there other techniques that you think are used too much in photography? Share it with us in the comments below.
