Dinosaurs would have been fascinating animals if they still existed. Although, we probably wouldn’t be able to write this blog if they did. Anyway, the point is that these were massive, powerful, majestic animals that died. All they left were fossils; signs of their existence that we humans have been able to use to build full-scale models in our museums.
If you are as fascinated by dinosaurs as we are, you probably love to take photos of their skeletons at museums. We have some tips to make sure that your photos turn out great.
Dinosaur skeletons are big, museums are small, and people in these museums are aplenty. So you can’t always get the full skeleton in your frame with just any lens. That is why we suggest you use a wide angle lens that ensures you get the whole animal in your shot.
Taking your camera lower to take a shot instead of from eye level will further enhance the scale and height of the dinosaur. Try different angles and perspectives to see what works best. Be creative with your framing and you might end up with a great-looking image.
Use creative effects to make your photograph unique. If the skeleton is placed outdoors, try HDR photography. This will ensure that your photo is well exposed and the sky doesn’t completely take over the photo. To learn more about HDR photography, head on to www.aurorahdr.com.
You can also take monochrome images for that feeling of ‘timelessness’. Taking a long exposure photo can also produce great results where the people moving around can be shown in blurs of color while the majestic skeleton looms over them.
Whatever kind of photograph you take, just make sure you do justice to the presence of these amazing creature that once ruled the earth.
