99% of PHOTOGRAPHY BEGINNERS make these mistakes 📸| Jaworskyj



in this video I tell you what 99% of all photography beginners to rock to all of the mistakes of course I will give you some solution that you can avoid them in the future and all of them I recognized on people around me and of course on people attending my workshop so you can learn something great now number one is to take not enough images and you might think now say now when I'm on vacation I take like 1 million images and I usually take too much images and that is true in some part but what I recognize is that people go to locations they take the camera and they take one image and they go on to the next location they take the next image and in the end they have like let's say 100 images but each image is totally different a totally different location and what my approach is to go to let's say a nice tree and you take one image of the tree then you take some time and look at the image you've taken and then you say ok let's take it maybe in portrait mode then you take the same image again then you go maybe a lower angle take the same image again and then you maybe go on the right-hand side take the same image again then you look for foreground and so on so you have a process with the one little thing the one location you photograph and every image of that one location looks different but in the end you have like 20 images of the same location all of them are different you can then choose what is the best image from that one location and not what is the best image of 1 million locations I just photographed and in the end maybe one is good but a lot of images are not good and that is what I like about photography the developing in the perspective in the maybe Moche take portrait or landscape mode in the foreground composition and so on so then you start to really photograph and not only to take snapshots number two is to put too much in your images and not too much effort not too much energy not too much food sure that might be some mistake a lot of people do but take actually too much of information in one image in gentleman this is saying you can't see the forest because of all of the trees and that's why we chose that location it's not actually a forest but a lot of fruit trees but it's kind of the same there's so much information around that it's sometimes tough to see what you want to see in the image let's say there might be a leopard somewhere behind me sneaking here around in the Black Forest and when you want to photograph the lap up now and want the view of the image to see the leopard then you want the image to be focused only on the leopard and how can you achieve that maybe with a blurry background so everything that is blurry is not interesting for the eye it might look beautiful but it's not interesting and the eye of the viewer then goes from blurry to shaft to everything that is in focus maybe then on the leopard and not on the trees when you would take the same image let's say with the wide-angle lens and maybe on f/8 with the fast shutters or 100 and as mentioned very wide angle then everything would be in focus your trees you have the grass you have the leopard you have the nice sky a blue sky you maybe have a sunset and so on so on that's too much information in the image it's nice for Where's Waldo if you know that but it's not nice for actually a great photograph and I do the same in landscape photography when I do longer exposures because longer exposure leads to the eye of the viewer from the blurry or smooth water back to maybe a solid rock or maybe back to some nice mountain in the background or away from some blurry clouds to some jetty or some bridge so try to avoid to make a too full image like with a tree with some grass with a leopard with me it's a beautiful woman sunset North alight and look away it's too much in one image try to concentrate or maybe two or three maximum elements in your image number three is a classic mistake and maybe I mentioned it already in some other videos but it's worth to mention it again because it's so important the mistake goes like this you want to take a nice image and you just snap it and then you just look on your screen and you see damn the image is blurry but why is it blurry I focused right and the mistake was that you had the wrong shutter speed your shutter speed actually was too slow yes it can be too slow and there is something to avoid that a rule of thumb in Germany say a rule of fist I have no idea why but yeah let's just do it like this so the rule of fist of thumb is to have a shutter speed that is at least as fast as your focal length is long so let's say simple example I'm on thirty five-millimeter so my shutter speed has to be at least one thirty fifth of a second fast better is even to take a double of your focal length so let's say thirty five-millimeter one seventies of the shutter speed there's actually no 70s but you can take one 60s or 180s of a second shutter speed let's make a different example one hundred millimeter how fast does your shutter speed need to be write it in the comments below yeah that's your work actually and with that rule of thumb or fist or whatever I wish you some sharp images oh and when we talk about thump give thump up for that video subscribe to the channel quick commercial if you want to learn more about photography landscape photography

mistakes I just talked about or maybe even do them still today that you can then avoid them in the future or if you belong to the 1% and this flower is for you I see you in the next video bye-bye
