The Best Effects of Photography

Photography is something most people assume to be easy. They think it just involves pointing at something interesting and clicking a button. But, it involves a lot of patience and takes years to master. Students can learn a lot in photography classes. Here are a few basic effects which beginners don’t know:


This involves blurring out the primary image of focus. More light is offered in areas that aren’t in focus. Aperture shape and lens aberrations are different that causes the blur to create some beautiful photos. There is good as well as bad when it comes to bokeh. From a good point, it enhances the look of an image while from a bad point, it distracts viewers from the image.


This is a technique which is used mostly for shooting moving objects like sports cars. It involves rotational, horizontal, and vertical movements of images or videos. In order to get the best possible results, you must stay with the object while pressing the shutter button. It’s a very old technique and requires a lot of patience to become an expert at.

Thirds rule

This is a method used by painters and artists frequently. Work produced with this technique can be found in many art galleries. It involves breaking down photos into thirds, horizontally and vertically, into nine parts. The focus object is not placed in the middle, usually, which makes photographs moving, dynamic, and interesting. A couple of the factors worth considering here are the frame and the point of interest.

Golden hour

This is also called the magic hour. It’s the first hour and last hour of the sunrise and sunset. The light here helps add interest and quality to a photograph. It requires photographers to be quick though as the quality of light tends to fade very quickly.

There are many other effects when it comes to photography. These are just some of the basic ones.
