The Artist, Sabo

Taking a picture is more than just clicking a button to capture an image of an object of people. It’s about breathing life into the end result. With more tools that are available and camera options that deliver the details that you desire when taking pictures, there are a few trends that you might notice in the future that you’ll want to practice.
The flash is back. There are photographers who are once again using the flash on the cameras as a light source when taking pictures. At times, pictures have been taken in natural settings or have been taken using other sources to light up the background. The flash effect can be used to sometimes better direct the light where you want it to go in the image, such as on someone’s face or to highlight a specific area of the picture that is taken.
Photography uses to be simple and straightforward. Now, there are patterns being used and details that are added that bring texture to a 2D print. There are often layers of patterns that are now seen with more in the future. Bright colors against patterns will also be a trend to look for along with objects that are used against a background to create an image, such as a white cloud against a backdrop of raindrops so that it looks like it’s raining in the image.
There are some people who didn’t want to include tattoos in pictures and would go to lengths to remove them. Now, tattoos make a picture unique. They are meant as a statement instead of something that belongs to a certain group of people. It’s something that makes each picture different from another, even if the same details are used.
