Most photographers are after those ‘perfect‘ images and painstakingly try to avoid shots that are slightly flawed. But sometimes the imperfect ones, the ones somewhat out of the ordinary, the ones that share a different and fresh approach are the best. In this video, the COOPH photographers show you how to get unique and awesome images by breaking all the photography rules.

Tip #1 – Wrong Exposures – Over/Underexpose your shots for some unique point of views

Tip #2 – Crooked Horizon – An angle adds dynamism

Tip #3 – Blur All The Things – set a long exposure and turn as you shoot to create some new looks. Try zooming in or out for even more looks.

Tip #4 – Wrong Lens – Don’t have the “right” lens with you? Use the “wrong” focal lengths to make a stylized shot like something out of a comic book.

Tip #5 – Out of Focus – Don’t focus on the person, but instead shift the mood by focusing on the background/foreground.
