MAX’S TIPS FOR SUC­CESS

Digital Photograper - - Interview / Max Van Son -

Check the lo­ca­tion in a detailed way be­fore you get started; it helps you to choose an op­ti­mal po­si­tion. How are you go­ing to com­pose the shot?

Pay close at­ten­tion to the play of light, fram­ing, lines, shapes and size of the sub­ject – it stim­u­lates you to de­ter­mine cor­rect view­ing di­rec­tion.

Make a clear se­lec­tion of what is im­por­tant and what is not. do you want to pho­to­graph the build­ing it­self or the build­ing and its sur­round­ings? what mes­sage do you want to send?

Try to cre­ate a ‘har­mo­nious con­trast’, for ex­am­ple be­tween light and shad­ows, large and small, and colour­ful vs. lim­ited use of colours.

if you see a good street scene, don’t just take one pho­to­graph. Make enough shots that you can se­lect the best im­age after­wards.

while shoot­ing in the street, stop check­ing the photo on the back screen – by do­ing that you could miss the spe­cial mo­ments.
