ANY CAMERA IS A GOOD CAMERA
What matters is that you get the shot you want
When it comes to off-road photography, taking the picture is more important than how you take it. Of course, there are cameras with better specs than others, but in the end the moment itself and capturing it is what’s valuable. For instance, taking a photo of your off-road vehicle with an iPhone compared to a professional camera won’t make a difference to the concept of the photo itself—only the quality of the image will change.
CREATE GOOD COMPOSITION
How elements of the photo are placed makes all the difference
Everything you capture with the lens of a camera tells a story. Aside from the subject of your photo, such as your off-road vehicles, elements in the surroundings create good composition and something interesting to look at. Filling the frame is one way to create composition. In this way, you can frame your ATV vehicle or side by side vehicle with trees on both sides, creating a lot to observe in the frame. Another way is by blocking the subject, which means taking a photo of your vehicle that is partially obstructed by another element such as a bush, making it seem like your subject is peeking out from behind it. You can also create leading lines, which draws the eyes of the viewers in a particular direction. While off-roading, this would mean shooting square on your vehicle and having a dirt road, clouds or the sky leading towards it, directing your focus.
