UAE-Based Photographer to Royalties Listed Five Helpful Tips for Photography Enthusiasts

March 28, 2017 Destination Middle East / Dubai No Comments Email Email

With UAE’s growing enthusiasm in the world of photography, it has instantly became one of the most popular hobby and source of income for young people.

Edison Evilla, a young photographer whose work has been commissioned by private clients including sheikhs, ambassadors, hotels, luxury yacht clubs and theme parks shared his views and tips on this growing trend that will shape the future of photography in the country.

According to Evilla: “The rate at which the popularity and relevance of the “photography” have grown over the past ten years is astounding especially here in the UAE. Photography have gone from an optional exercise to a potent marketing tool and a source of income for some. These days, a well captured photograph can bring national or international recognition.”

See below for images taken from Evilla’s work portfolio, as well as his top tips for budding photographers.

1. There is no such thing as the perfect photo. Every photographer will pick holes in their own work, especially the best of them. The perfect photo is only in your mind and is more likely to be the idea of the next shot you take. The best advice that I can give about taking a good picture is take lots; even the worst photographer can get lucky if they stack the odds!

2. Taking photographs is a personal process. It’s an exploration of your own picture of you versus my picture of you. You’ve got to treat it as an extended discussion between photographer and subject. It kind of helps if you like people, too.

3. Never think that the camera is the most important thing. The camera is a tool. It’s the environment, the atmosphere and the collaboration that will get you the shot. So find a camera that you are comfortable with and enjoying using and stick to that.

4. You need to experiment and take risks. There is no right and wrong. So be brave and go for it. Experiment, experiment, experiment. Take inspiration from other people by all means, but never copy.

5. The lens is just a window you’re looking through. The more you can imagine that, the better. It will break down the barriers between you and your subject. Everyone, no matters how famous they are, gets nervous in front of the camera. Everyone. So learning to smile with your eyes and communicate with them as if the camera isn’t there is a great help.
