Why is there such a big gap between you and God in the same scene? Why haven't you got a good picture from someone else's cell phone with your camera? Every photograph is beautiful, and you are...
You shut up for me, and then you'll take it to heart! ____________ Can't I study hard? So the question arises: how do we learn?
The moonbird's words today are slightly pretentious. But if you really grasp them, it will really become a hand-acting genius!
So the topic we are discussing today is: how to practice the golden eye in photography, that is, the so-called "photographic eye".~
What, what is the "photographic eye"? "Photo Eye" is actually the ability to see what others can't see. When facing the same scenes, mobile phone photographers always hope that the works they shoot will be different. How to exercise this ability in daily shooting and learning?
Accumulate shooting scenes and pay more attention to observation
The content, subject matter and scene of mobile phone shooting are very important in shooting. It's like you can make mobile wallpaper by taking a few pictures with your mobile phone in Tibet, but if you take a camera to take a dance in the square, it's sure that the former is easier to get big pictures.
"Photo Eye" is not only when shooting, but also in the previous shooting has seen enough photographs of similar subjects.
In daily travel, pay more attention to the details of the surrounding life and scenes, including the structure of the scene, the mapping of light and shadow, changing colors, dancing lines and so on. In the taxi, when walking, see the scene suitable for photography, open the mobile viewfinder to see if it is suitable for photography, if there are individuals in the picture, the effect will be better. If you try something similar, you will find that there are many scenes suitable for taking pictures. Photographing on the iPhone 6

Snowy days make the scene very beautiful. The dead trees and guardrails on both sides of the road make the picture more perspective. The umbrella holder who suddenly broke into the camera becomes the focus. Photographed on the iPhone 8plus
I've seen similar scenes before, which makes shooting easier. Suitable weather, the figure's back, and the later stage of the dark tone make the atmosphere of the picture more artistic conception.
Don't blindly shoot, think before meeting the bottleneck of shooting
After taking a lot of pictures with my mobile phone, I will find that if I look at the pictures I have taken before from the present perspective, I would feel that if I changed the angle or adjusted the position of the characters in the picture, the effect would be better. Look at whether your photography is progressing, you can see that you have taken satisfactory photos before, standing at the present stage, do you still think it takes a good picture?
Mobile phone shooting skills are very simple, just started to pursue the beauty of the form of photographs, if you feel that the beauty of form has reached, then you can focus on the content of the picture, interesting content is always the most attractive focus of the audience. Next time you're ready to turn on your mobile phone for shooting, remember to think about what you can shoot and what you can't shoot? How do I shoot? Photographed on the iPhone 8plus
The image of a person standing or squatting makes the picture more interesting. Is there any connection between the characters? This makes the audience think more and the picture more exquisite.
Reading good movies is the best way to improve aesthetics and accumulate inspiration for shooting.
Don't immerse yourself in the world of photography. It's easy to become complacent and conflicting. See more excellent photographer's works, you can start with the subject you are interested in shooting, encounter favorite works can be saved, if you shoot similar subjects can be used for reference. Reading pictures is a process of re-learning. By looking at the works of excellent photographers, we can have more shooting ideas and gradually improve our aesthetic appreciation of photographs.
Looking at excellent works, you can ask yourself a few questions: Why do you like this photo? What can I learn from composition and tone? If I take pictures of similar subjects, how can I take them?

Take the most interesting and familiar subjects
If you are interested in something, you will be willing to put more energy into it; if you are familiar with something, you will be more comfortable with it. Mobile phone photography has many subjects that can be photographed. On the way to and from work, occasionally passing the streets with a strong sense of enclosure and familiar people around them are the themes and content that mobile phones can shoot.

After dinner with friends and passing through the bus stop, the highlights of the bus stop and the shadows around it contrast strongly, which makes the figure outline in the silhouette more prominent. Photographing on the iPhone 6
On the way to work, the overpass is attracted by the oblique light and shadow. The curve of the elevated road acts as the guide line, and the shuttle vehicles make the picture more dynamic.
Filming is not done in one step. It's a process.
Don't rush to shoot, don't rush to finish. Many people think that photography is a moment, but I understand that photography is a process, which tests your understanding and understanding of the scene. Most of the time, the objects we shoot are dynamic, and dynamic things have trajectories.
And the core of composition is the position arrangement of picture elements. In order to make the main body of the picture in the best visual position, and we press the shutter for a moment, it is difficult to record the most suitable position in the movement, so we need to record the corresponding trajectory, giving more possibilities to shoot the picture.
After shooting, don't rush to see if the shooting is satisfactory. You can observe the surrounding scenes again to see if there is the possibility of taking better pictures. Photographing Process Map Phone 8 plus Photographing Final Effect Map
