10 Photography Techniques to Help you Level up Faster

This week blog post, I'm going to share with you some inspiring Photography techniques to help improve and craft your photos better... Well, shooting every day helps when practice makes perfect. The best camera you have is the one you have, it's your eyes. However, sometimes practice seeing is not efficient, you gotta know what you can do more to portray your arts in Photography.
Here are Top 10 Photography techniques to help you level up faster:

Black and White Photography
Black and white photography can give certain scenes a striking, timeless quality when done well. Not every shot will work in B&W, just like certain shots look more beautiful in monochrome than in colour.

Sepia Photography
Monochrome simply means varying shades of only one colour are used to make an image. This is often thought of as black and white (which are technically monochromatic) but in reality, any colour can be used. Sepia-toned photographs are a good example of images which are monochrome yet it's not black and white, however, applied towards yellowish-brown tone.

Manipulation Photography
Photo Manipulation is one of the most fascinating photography techniques out there. Photo Manipulation is the process of editing a photograph in such an extreme way that it takes on an entirely different look. Photo Manipulation goes beyond mere enhancements or corrections. Creating unbelievable stories with precision and skill, these artists make us believe that magic can exist, that fantasy and reality can merge altogether. Opens up your mind to new imaginations.

Long Exposure Photography
Long-exposure, time-exposure, or slow-shutter photography involves using a long-duration shutter speed to sharply capture the stationary elements of images while blurring, smearing, or obscuring the moving elements.

Low Key Photography
Low-key photography is a very simple technique that brings instant drama to an image by the lightings but could take a while to master it. Low-key photography is a style where there are two main elements, shadows and highlight. The main subject is usually in the portion where highlights area are and shadows are for covering up all distractions surrounding the subject. You may also read more about it here.

Hi-Key Photography
High key photography is the total opposite of Low Key Photography. It is a great way to highlight your subject by overexposing the background.

HDR Photography
Cameras are great vision tools but they have a few shortcomings. Unlike the human eye, a camera can't adjust for shadows and highlights in the same scene. In a high contrast scene, shadows leave details in the dark while highlights overexpose bright areas into white. And the solution is HDR.

HDR or High Dynamic Range Photography is a post-processing technique that uses multiple images of the same scene shot at different manual settings of different lightings to combine them all into a single photograph.

Panorama Photography
Panoramic photography is a technique of photography, using specialized software (such as photoshop) or can be easily done by iPhones these days, captures images with horizontally elongated fields of view. A great panoramic image depicts an angle of view which is significantly wider than the one that is typically captured in one exposure. Panoramic photos are the height of professional imagery as they add a sense of time and location and give the viewer a super wide view of the subject.

Vertorama Photography
What is Vertorama? Vertorama comes from the word Panorama.The only difference is, it's a combination of HDR and Panoramic images. It sounds really simple here, however, it can really bring great impact to your photos.

Last but not least,

Timelapse Photography
Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate). When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.
