- Try to start with the best photo possible. Sometimes we are trying to capture a spontaneous moment and the photo may not be as well composed as we would like; and it is more important to capture the moment than look after the other details. Nonetheless, the fewer things to deal with afterward the easier photo touching is.
- Rule of thirds. If we (mentally) divide an image vertically and horizontally into three even sections, thereby forming nine equally shaped rectangles, we have a good framework for composing a picture. Try cropping a picture so that it fits into the rule of thirds. If people’s eyes are one third from the top of the picture the photo tends to look well proportioned. Scenery that follows the rule of thirds proportions also seems to work well. Then again, if an exception to the rule works for one particular case, then use the exception.
- Remove the odd details of the image. If something is distracting in the picture it has to go. The subject of the photo needs to be without anything that rivals for attention. Spots, unnatural looking shadows, lens flare, reflective hot spots and anything else that does not look like an organic part of the picture will serve as a distraction. The spot healing brush tool is good for this.
- The amount of detail in a picture can be an issue. While we tend to prefer high resolution images that show all the fine details the higher resolution can work against us. if the details of an object are finer than the resolution of the camera we can find there are wavy lines (moire) on the photo. Else, we might find many details in the background of a shot are distracting. Using a low-pass filter on these sections will blur the details, and give better overall effect. This blurring should look natural; avoid overdoing it.
