There are two sides to every photograph. A technical side and a creative side. A technically correct photograph that is not too light or dark and in focus can still be boring. You must make good creative choices to create a beautiful photograph.
Technical and creative are two different worlds. There is no setting on the camera that will change a low to a high camera angle. Camera height is a creative choice. Today’s digital camera is a computer with a lens on it that can be set to automatically control the camera settings. Creative choices can only be made by the photographer.
If you have bad framing, cropping, angle, lighting, perspective, subject placement choices you will have a bad photograph. Bad lighting alone can ruin a photograph. Learning how to see creatively is the first thing you need to do, camera settings is second.
There are people who say that creativity can’t be taught. You either were born with a creative eye or you weren’t. I would agree except I have seen my Creative Photography Secrets workshop teach people how to see creatively and take amazing photographs. If you want great photos you need to go beyond the technical and embrace the creative side of photography.
