5 Hacks to UP your PHOTOGRAPHY in 100 seconds!

1. Long exposures in unusual places
Use a tripod, a remote control and an ND filter and take long exposures where you don’t necessary think of taking long exposures
TIP: search for elements that move near the ones that stay still

2. Move your camera while shooting
While shooting move the camera up and down | in circles | or just shake it for an interesting effect
TIP: it helps having a longer shutter speed

3. Zoom your lenses
While shooting zoom in or out | or first zoom in then hold your lens still and rotate your camera for a twist effect
TIP: the longer the zoom the better the effect looks

4. Gradual filters in unusual ways
You can use gradual filters to compensate for the sky’s brightness but you can also use them to create a path of light. Place two graduated filters like this and shoot inside the forest
TIP: you don’t have to have 2 identical graduated filters. You can use a 2 stops and 3 stops

5. Create cinemagraphs
Cinemagraphs are the new thing … and also look cool. Think of what you want to be still and then of the things that move. Make your subject still and let some elements continue their movement. Looks cool hugh? :)
