Have you ever looked at a photo so amazing that you are left asking yourself,
“How in the world did they do this?”
“They must have found an incredibly beautiful location.”
“Is this even real?”
“That must have been a very expensive shoot!”
Well – not necessarily. There’s more to photography than what you see. That portrait wasn’t exactly at a flower field in Amsterdam. That car wasn’t actually in the middle of an ocean. That piece of cake wasn’t necessarily laid out on the most expensive piece of oak furniture. That drizzle on the background wasn’t actually rain (wait, then what is it?)
This is what separates great photographers from the so-so ones. The ability to make something beautiful out of something very ordinary, every day, or in modern terms – mundane and dreadfully un-instagrammable things, locations, and situations.
Great photos are products of insane creativity, imagination and spectacular resourcefulness – and sometimes boss-level skills in Lightroom and Photoshop. The latter, which is the technical aspect, can be learned, while the former is something that one should already have a certain degree of should you want to get into the competitive world of photography.
If you still have your doubts, then sit back and let us take you behind the scenes of how these amazing photographs were achieved. Watch the full video below and get ready to be blown away! While at it, don’t forget to take some notes to step up your photography game. [mashshare]
