Transcript of What makes a good yearbook photo

Point of View
Know Your
There are some things to look out for; make sure you don't step on any toes.
Rule of Thirds
Breaking an image into thirds so that it has nine parts; the subject of the photo will line up with one or more of the thirds.
This creates a balanced photo
Candid Photos
A candid photo is an "in the moment," un-posed picture. These are the best photos.

In candid photos, the subject is usually not aware that their photo is being taken.
What makes a good yearbook photo?
Having a different angle changes the whole mood of a photo.
Shooting from below makes the subject look powerful
Shooting from above may portray the subject as small
Shooting with the camera slightly tilted might create an artistic effect
Where are you shooting from?
Will the image look better from a different angle?
Have you tried shooting from above or below the subject?
Have you tried shooting closer up or from a greater distance?
Try this
For an interesting photo, try getting angles that most people typically don't see. Instead of photographing football players, photograph the stands from a football players' perspective.
How do you take good candid photos?
Instead of focusing on an event, try focusing
on the reactions to that event.

In the least creepy way possible, don't let people know that you are taking their picture until you've already done it.

Carry your camera with you everywhere: class, sports events, orchestra concerts, etc. Be ready for surprising moments and events

It's okay to shoot on the "auto" setting of your camera, just don't use flash

Look for emotion.
For taking pictures during class, make sure it is alright with your teacher-- especially if you are taking pictures from your phone.
At sports events, try to get as close to the action as you can but not so close that it disrupts the game.
At concerts and plays, make sure photography is allowed and DO NOT use flash.
Leading Lines
Lines that guide the eye through the elements of a picture.
Emphasis is placed on wherever the lines lead
Blocking parts of the photo with other parts of the scene
Draws attention toward the main subject in an intriguing way
Multiple objects of similar shape are positioned in a pattern of some sort
The give a sense of flow to an image
Negative Space
The space surrounding the subject
Not good for the yearbook, but good when you intend to crop the photo later
Can place attention only on the main subject
Always fill the frame
Convey a sense of distance
Have a foreground, middle ground, and background
