Step 4: Learn how to make it better.
First of all, you need to be able to look at your photo and see what’s wrong. This is actually harder than the fixing it most of the time. To help you with this, this is how I check my photos:
- Is the image straight?
- Check the background for anything distracting
- Check the lighting (exposure) is it too dark or too light?
- Are the colour right?
- Is the main subject obvious?
Step 5: Go do it again.
While some fixes can be done post processing. Most of the time its easier to do it while taking the photo. So once you’ve figured out what’s wrong. Take the photo again. This time trying best to fix again issues.
