When you are just starting out in photography, there are so many things to learn about. And one of the main ways to learn is by experimenting with what works and what dosen't. 

Here a 4 tricks to help you bring out the uniqueness in your images: 

 

Trick #1 - Try out different camera exposure settings
---------------------------------------------------
By exploring the exposure settings of your camera, you could have pictures looking more brilliant with 0.5 to 2 stops underexposed in bright surroundings, and scenes appearing more clear with some overexposure. Just by simple tuning of the exposure level, you can create pictures which can bring out different moods from people viewing it. Thats why the quote "A Picture Says A Thousand Words" is very true indeed ! For newbies, try out bracketing (i.e: Take the same photos with different exposure levels) and take your favorite pick from them.


Trick #2 - Bring out some creative blur in photos
---------------------------------------------------
By introducing some well-planned blur in photos, you can bring across certain important features, while using the rest as good complement, providing an overall nice touch. This can be done in 2 basic ways.

First way is depth-of-field blur. Varying the lens aperture between 0.4 to 1.4 can create a lovely, soft background blur which bring sharp focus to the subject in the foreground.

Second way is movement blur. Done by setting the camera exposure on shutter priority, and keep it slow so as to capture interesting streaks as the subject moves in front of the camera.


Trick #3 - Create something out of nothing !!
---------------------------------------------------
What the heck do I mean by that? This encourages you to take a step back and rethink how you can take wonderful pictures with things you already encounter on a daily basis.

One approach is to create your shot with the common elements around you such as lines, space and patterns. This can mean anything from the roads to the bridges, the trees, the railings, etc.. You start to see more possibilities and room for creativity.


Trick #4 - Take Unique Photos !!
--------------------------------------

Have you ever seen an image that was oddly blurred near the edges? Or it almost looked like it was a double exposure? A prism is a simple and fun tool that can give you extremely unique results, multiple different ways!
