You don’t need people for your photograph. Understand the kind of themes you are looking for.

Photography isn’t just taking a picture. The best part is to plan what you are shooting and understand your theme.

 

Most of all, when trying to capture the best image, the goal is to create an impression that stays with the viewer.

Don’t be afraid to take extreme close-ups of the character.

Don’t be afraid to lie on the ground to take a low shot or stand on something high for a tall photo of the character.

This helps find the right mood for the image you’re trying to bring to life.
