This morning, I shot a product introduction: Samsung’s NX-20 point-and-shoot camera. Here’s one shot:
For a shot like this, a few things need to come together.
- Composition: Filling the frame, and using the rule of Thirds.
- Exposure: Right for the balloon, and hopefully for the sky – in this case, both, because I poisitioned myself right w.r.t. the light
- Moment: the moment the flame is visible is the moment to shoot.
Remember that a photo is a combination of light-subject-moment. Get all three and you have a worthwhile snap. A good subject certainly helps – but it is not enough.
