Creating A Great Image

There are many factors that go into creating a great image. Some of the most important include:

Creative images, what’s behind the picture? Zigzagging your way to a great image, a look at those linear associations between variables

Five important aspects that align themselves to a great image!

  • Lighting: Lighting is one of the most important elements of photography. It can create mood, atmosphere, and even tell a story.
  • Composition: Composition is the arrangement of elements in a photograph. A well-composed image will be balanced, visually appealing, and will draw the viewer's eye to the subject.
  • Subject matter: The subject matter of a photograph is what the image is about. A great image will have a subject that is interesting, engaging, and visually appealing.
  • Technical skill: Technical skill is important for taking great photos. This includes things like knowing how to use your camera settings, how to focus properly, and how to avoid camera shake.
  • Creativity: Creativity is essential for taking great photos. This means being able to see the world in a new way and to come up with original ideas for your images.

Of course, even if you have all of these elements in place, there is no guarantee that you will create a great image. Photography is an art form, and like any art form, it takes practice and skill to create something truly special.

Here are some additional tips for creating great images:

  • Experiment with different techniques: There are no rules in photography. The best way to learn is to experiment with different techniques and see what works for you.
  • Don't be afraid to fail: Everyone takes bad photos. The important thing is to learn from your mistakes and keep trying.
  • Get feedback from others: Show your photos to friends, family, and other photographers. They can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and give you suggestions for improvement.
  • Don't give up: Photography is a lifelong journey. Keep taking photos, keep learning, and keep creating.

Joining the Dots 


  • The light on the subject
  • The subject itself
  • The lens in front of the subject
  • The camera body on the lens
  • The mind’s eye of the photographer

When each aspect comes into play and has everything going for it, whilst optimised and aligned perfectly then the results will be awesome. If one or more aspects are of lesser value, the opportunities to turnout a great image will be reduced. ie You can have a great subject photographed by an award-winning photographer using a quality camera and lens combination, but if the light on the subject is poor then the results might be good but they’re not going to be great. Likewise, you can have fabulous light on a great subject photographed by a novice photographer using a quality camera and lens combo, but if the mind’s eye of the photographer is lacking creativity then a great outcome will be lost.

There are numerous ways to take a photograph, however, taking a picture in a desirable way, with the appropriate means, at the optimum time is what makes the result a great image. Creativity is either in you or not? I believe it’s more a question of how much and when, it’s whether you discover, harness and develop those inner creative characteristics.

Can creativeness be instilled in your photography?

Maybe not, or maybe it rests dormant within us all just waiting to be discovered. Whichever, creativeness is a free enterprise available to all, and when unrestrained, open minds will flourish, and those individuals will blossom. Imagination is there for all to use and tap into at any age and time in life. It’s down to personal conviction, choice and the willingness to set yourself free, left untapped the creative sides of so many go undeveloped. Just like the free market, those that channel their talent will benefit from their innovative approach and be rewarded with wonderful creative images.
