What makes a good photograph?

May 26, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

With the rush of people these days rushing out to buy DLSR cameras because they have become more affordable, it's become a myth that you need a decent camera to take decent photos. In some cases, it is true if you were going to photograph a wedding, a professional portrait session or some kind of event, but for the average person, the camera built into a mobile phone or an old compact camera is good enough.

Taking a picture these days is very easy because most of us have a camera within touching distance 24/7. So what makes a good photograph? Well in my opinion it all depends on what that picture means to the person who took it.

If all of your pictures that are on your phone, Facebook and your p.c all disappeared overnight, how much money would you pay to get those pictures back? £100, £500, £1000 !?

You probably took most of the photos you own with the camera on your phone, but I bet most of these photos are now priceless.

So if you are taking photos and thinking "Wish I could take decent photos!", you are probably already doing that already, the real question is "How can I improve the quality of the photos that I am taking?".  That question is such a big question to answer in one blog post so I will leave that question for now.

So go out with your compact camera or camera phone and just enjoy taking photos, there will be plenty of opportunities now with the weather improving slowly.  

My first ever camera was a Sony Cybershot cheap as chips camera and it was used to take the picture above. It may not be the best butterfly picture ever, but it was good enough for me at the time.
